ABOUT THE FESTIVAL Moviemaker magazine, in its spring 2008 issue, listed the Route 66 Film Festival as one of the 25 festivals worth the entry fee. Ours was also a featured festival at the 2009 International Film Festival Summit in Las Vegas. The Route 66 Film Festival began in 2002 as a part of the Mother Road Festival, celebrating the vehicles and history of the famous highway. It is currently a separate event from the car show. We have screened films from many countries, including Belgium, France, South Africa, Japan, Brazil, Spain, Great Britain, Uruguay, Mexico, Canada, and the United States. We celebrate diversity and welcome films of all lengths and genres. We like good stories that inform and touch us, and ask audiences to vote for their favorites from films in various genres. Judges select films for official awards. This is a festival that has something for everyone. Several films screened at our festival have subsequently received distribution on Netflix and gone on to be honored at other festivals. We are proud that three of the short films screened at our festival have also been nominated for Oscars. All entries selected for the festival will receive 2 free passes to the festival; if the Festival is held virtually (whether in place of or in addition to in-person), the entries selected will receive one free pass to the session in which their film is presented. Film makers are invited and encouraged to attend to interact with other film makers and the audience.
