NEW COMPETITION FOR FEATURE FILMS!

Since COVID-19 has been putting quite a damper on both festivals and film productions everywhere, we are pleased to announce the opening of our online festival especially for feature films.

Here's the best part... Any films that have already been released are welcome to enter this competition!  Have a feature film that has been buried under hundreds of others on Amazon, Youtube, other streaming services, or in the DVD bargain bins?  This is the competition for you! We will be heavily promoting the selected films in press releases and social media to help resurrect them.

The selected films will NOT be screened online. We'll be holding an awards video that will be available for the public (Just like we did for our 2020 Finalists in September) and feature trailers or clips of these films as we announce the winners.

Submissions are now open! Get all the details by clicking on the submission button below!
