😞 We don't have a program for this festival yet. Would you like to help us add it?
A festival of story, inviting photographers and filmmakers to submit a narrative of monumentally ordinary proportions. These works should offer fresh and artful interpretations of BitterSweet’s credo: refuse cynicism, defy apathy, celebrate good. The inaugural festival will accept both film (up to 12 minutes in length) and photo essay (including 3 to 5 photographs) entries. Submissions will be judged against the credo. As a community seeking to center the margins in our work, we invite both amateurs and professionals to submit and promise as low a barrier to entry as possible. From concept to format, we are engineering this festival to see what we can learn from the unlikely. On December 10 and 11, we will come together in Washington, DC at the Twelve to celebrate and honor the official selections for the festival. Programming for the in-person event will be announced at a later date.
