More info to follow. Our festival was started in 2017 with one thought in mind...To give all filmmakers young and old a fair chance at a worlds stage. Our festival is designed to be fun for all ages and we encourage all film makers, from first timers to experienced professionals, to submit films for the world to see. We understand not everyone has access to huge budgets and expensive equipment so our festival stands as an outlet for the underground, Indie and amateur film makers to show the world what they are made of side by side with industry professional and student films. In our first year we had films from all over the world from France to Iraq, Canada to Mexico and films from right here in the central part of California. At our festival you will not be turned down or away due to budgets, equipment, money or production limitations...everyone has a voice and a story to long as the story is clear and entertaining, we will be honored to screen it. Weather it is filmed on a iPhone or red epic cinema camera, we are looking for stories to share! Submissions open December 28th and run until august 30th with the extended deadline. The film submissions are open to anyone, everywhere who would like to submit. We can't wait to see what films you can bring to the festival!
