This is our 10th year, and our 16th film festival.
We are often asked where the films come from, and who are the filmmakers.
The films were made by aspiring filmmakers of all ages and experience levels, from all over the U.S. Many were produced by college students, and other films were made to "audition" various skills such as cinematography, editing, acting, or screenwriting.
Budgets range from "zero" dollars, to many thousands of dollars. Some of the films were shot in a day, and others took months to finish. Some were shot on cell phones, and others were shot on cameras that cost more than a Lexus. But regardless of the budget
or available resources, what all filmmakers share in common is a genuine love of the creative process. Most of all, they would like to have you come and see what they have done.
We collect entries from various sources over a period of several months, usually around 150 films, and then our panel of five volunteer judges goes to work selecting films for our show.
Our judges also evaluate each film by its camera work, editing, sound mix, script, acting, and entertainment value, and award certificates are presented to the best film in each category.
Films have not been rated,
and may contain adult
dialog or situations. Viewer
discretion is advised.
