    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    VISIONFEST: THE OTHER FESTIVAL (VF) encourages and promotes domestic filmmaking. With guidelines that exclude the submission of foreign entries and focusing exclusively on U.S. based product, VF remains one of the very few "domestic" film festivals on the East Coast. VF brings attention to the American independent filmmaker with the same enthusiasm and effort that most other film festivals spend on their own "international" entrants. The long-term VF goal is to bring the American filmmaker abroad and around the world by bringing VF product to other international forums and into the hands of global media and overseas audiences. The VF mission is supported and driven by the Domani Vision Film Society, which itself was created to bring American visionaries together in an effort to introduce their work abroad. Founded and curated by U.S. based filmmakers, VF is loyal and supportive to its participants and is always ready to bring forth their works for extended or additional exhibition opportunities by way of its ongoing, archival library. VF participants become part of a family... and a family that stays together flourishes together.

    Films - 40 minutes or longer. Shorts - up to 40 minutes. Screenplay Competition added due to popular demand!

    For narrative films, any genre that features action. For example Terminator 2: Sci-Fi/Action; Aliens: Horror/Action; and The Heat: Comedy/Action.

    Animated films, any film that features action. For example Frozen, Brave, Tangled,and The Croods.

    Documentary films are open to any stories about women in the armed forces, public service (police force, fire fighters, paramedics, etc.), pro and non-pro sports, basically any story that celebrates women in action or depicts heroic acts.

    For screenplays, any genre that features action. For example Terminator 2: Sci-Fi/Action; Aliens: Horror/Action; and The Heat: Comedy/Action.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Mission of Asian CineVision:

    Founded in 1978, the Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) is organized by Asian CineVision (ACV), a non-profit media arts organization dedicated to promoting and preserving Asian and Asian American media expressions.

    Asian CineVision aims to:

    • Develop and support both emerging and experienced Asian American film and video makers and other media artists working in a range of genres and styles.

    • Ensure that the full spectrum of Asian and Asian American media works reach diverse audiences in Asian American communities and beyond.

    More than 30 years later, AAIFF continues to be a leading showcase for independent Asian and Asian American film and video. In 2015, we celebrate our 38th Anniversary and we hope you can join us!

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    HSU Alum and HFF Alum (people who have screened at our festival in the past) get a discount. Visit our website for more info!

    Our mission at the Humboldt Film Festival is to expose independent filmmaking to a diverse range of viewers, and to break away from mainstream filmmaking; thus coming forth with a deeper appreciation for this medium of cinema as a whole. That being said, we also want to enrich educational experiences and learning opportunities for HSU students by allowing them to focus their creative and productive energies on the development and presentation of the world’s oldest student-run film festival. The integrity of the festival is built on the unique blend of academic interests, cultural backgrounds, and the creative talents of the students. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that the festival maintains its longstanding tradition as a student-run event - a designation that helps it stand out among a sea of similar festivals.

    The Humboldt Film Festival serves as a vehicle for the exhibition of such independent films and DV works that are commonly regarded as an art form rather than a commercial venture; and unlike commercial films, which often target a specific audience for monetary gain, the independent world of filmmakers must finance much of its own work to secure an audience for it.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    DOC NYC, America's largest documentary festival, is an annual event based in New York at the West Village’s IFC Center, Chelsea’s SVA Theatre and Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas. Voted by MovieMaker magazine as one of the "top five coolest documentary film festivals in the world", the eight-day fest showcases new achievements in documentary film along with panels and conversations. DOC NYC seeks to make connections that happen “only in New York.”

    "This cinematic bonanza covers everything new and noteworthy in the world of documentary filmmaking.” - The Huffington Post

    “DOC NYC has cemented itself as one of our favorite festivals of the cultural calendar." – Flavorpill

    “DOC NYC has become an essential summit for all kinds of documentary filmmaking.” – Wall Street Journal

    “An essential event on the cinephile's calendar.” - TimeOut New York

    “Images that dare you to turn away.” – The New York Times

    “The most comprehensive celebration of the nonfiction form in the five boroughs or anywhere else for that matter.” - AM New York

    “Bigger isn't always better. But when it comes to DOC NYC, now the largest documentary film festival in the U.S., the five-year-old upstart event has proven itself a worthy new addition [...] By all accounts, screenings have been selling out; the country's top documentary filmmakers, from Albert Maysles to D.A. Pennebaker, are showing up for tributes and events; and sales agents are closing deals on select world premieres." - Indiewire

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Welcome to Fear No Film & Fear No Film KIDS 2015. Fear No Film, in essence, means fear no filmMAKER nor filmmaker vision. This is a unique festival that screens a wide variety of short films in context-rich, thematic screenings such as 2012's "The Tipping Points," 2011's "The Greek Muses: Comedy, Tragedy, Love, Dance, History, Astronomy, Lyrical, Spiritual, and Lyric Storytelling", 2010's "Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Docs, Happy, Grumpy, Bashful (or Not),", and 2008's "Films that Lean to the Left, Lean to the Right, Stand Up, Sit Down, Fight! Fight! FIGHT!"

    The Utah Arts Festival is one of the largest, most culturally rich artistic showcases in the western United States. The works celebrated at the festival stretch well beyond the borders of Utah, exposing over 80,000 festival-goers to a diverse collection of contemporary yet traditional, challenging yet accessible, thought provoking yet fun range of works over four frenetic days every June.

    The Fear No Film Festival aims to celebrate a similar range of artistic excellence. Over 60 short films will be screened with non-cash awards awarded by a Grand Jury, the Utah Arts Festival, and by an audience vote.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Hell's Half Mile Film & Music Festival (HHM) is the perfect mix of independent film and live indie music. You may not have heard of us yet, but we’ll try to leave you with a lasting impression as we have with past guests.

    "I don't remember much of my two years going to Hell's Half Mile. That's how much fun I had." – Rider Strong, “Cabin Fever” and two time HHM guest.

    Our taste is eclectic, everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to emotional drama. Our goal is to find "the little film that could" -- a bunch of them -- and bring the filmmakers together to take over Bay City, MI. Our primary concern is community, and the filmmakers who attend our long weekend walk away with lifelong friends and future collaborators.

    In the last nine years over 100 directors, producers, screenwriters and actors have joined our growing audience. We provide travel and accommodations to a limited number of filmmakers, plus all-access passes and catered receptions. All venues are within a few block radius and hotels are within walking distance, making it super easy to get around. Visit hhmfest.com for links to the venues and video recaps of the 2012 through 2014 festivals. We schedule events to help you connect with each other and the local community. Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including unique outings that give you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema.

    "I’ve been to SXSW several times, San Francisco, a bunch of smaller festivals all over the U.S.it [Hell’s Half Mile] feels like the real deal. It’s people who genuinely love film, love the independent film community. The quality and lineup is incredible” – Ashley Spillers "Arlo and Julie"

    Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including a unique outing that gives you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema. Once you become an HHM alum you’ll receive fee waivers for future projects and all-access passes for subsequent HHM Fests, whether you have a film in our program or not. Additionally, upon selection, your first-year submission fees are refunded, making it easy (and affordable) to submit to another festival.

    “Hell's Half Mile gives me warm feelings in my heart. The warm feeling in my pants is possibly unrelated. It’s worth every minute and it's the kind of festival that you make movies for.” – Kenny Stevenson, writer and actor, "Love, Sex and Missed Connections".

    Filmmakers are encouraged to participate in panel discussions, receptions and other events. Because we are beginning to foster student and local filmmaking, we provide opportunities for guest filmmakers to present a workshop or lecture focused on a specific topic or specialty. Other guests are invited to screen our student and local short films and give constructive feedback to the filmmakers. This type of mentoring helps to strengthen local filmmaking and continue our relationships with area universities.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Hell's Half Mile Film & Music Festival (HHM) is the perfect mix of independent film and live indie music. You may not have heard of us yet, but we’ll try to leave you with a lasting impression as we have with past guests.

    "I don't remember much of my two years going to Hell's Half Mile. That's how much fun I had." – Rider Strong, “Cabin Fever” and two time HHM guest.

    Our taste is eclectic, everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to emotional drama. Our goal is to find "the little film that could" -- a bunch of them -- and bring the filmmakers together to take over Bay City, MI. Our primary concern is community, and the filmmakers who attend our long weekend walk away with lifelong friends and future collaborators.

    In the last nine years over 100 directors, producers, screenwriters and actors have joined our growing audience. We provide travel and accommodations to a limited number of filmmakers, plus all-access passes and catered receptions. All venues are within a few block radius and hotels are within walking distance, making it super easy to get around. Visit hhmfest.com for links to the venues and video recaps of the 2012 through 2014 festivals. We schedule events to help you connect with each other and the local community. Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including unique outings that give you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema.

    "I’ve been to SXSW several times, San Francisco, a bunch of smaller festivals all over the U.S.it [Hell’s Half Mile] feels like the real deal. It’s people who genuinely love film, love the independent film community. The quality and lineup is incredible” – Ashley Spillers "Arlo and Julie"

So, if you think that "Weasels Rip My Flesh" was awesome, that the best part of "Evil Dead" was when the trees attack, that Monty Python was genius, can't decide whether you like Tim Curry best in "Rocky Horror", "Legend", or "Clue", and can spend hours debating the parameters of the space-time continuum based solely on its portrayal in the "Back to the Future" Trilogy - THIS is the festival for you.

    **We are a short film festival, ONLY films 20 minutes or less are accepted into the festival.**

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Anthem, The Libertarian Film Festival, is dedicated to finding and presenting the year's best films about personal and civil liberty. We seek films and documentaries about self-reliance, innovation, commerce, individual rights, and the power of persuasion over force.

    Libertarian heroes follow their own paths. They do not conform to the expectations of others. When something goes wrong, they fix it themselves. When something goes right, they give credit where it is due. We want to see protagonists acting in their own self interest, doing all that they can for themselves without government intrusion, regulation, or support. When people watch out for themselves, they create a better world for everyone.

    Libertarian films are about choice, opportunity, and knocking down obstacles. They often point out the unintended consequences of government intervention, but they are just as likely to present a protagonist’s personal struggle for self-expression. They show us how to make the world a better place simply by making our own lives better.

    Filmmakers often screen to standing-room-only audiences at Anthem, because Anthem is part of FreedomFest, “the world’s largest gathering of free minds.” With over 2,500 attendees and 200 speakers on topics including politics, economics, history, science, health, art, and literature, FreedomFest provides a ready audience of eager viewers for Anthem’s filmmakers. Our comfortable 250-seat theater was often overflowing at last year's festival, and over 1,000 people attended our two featured films.

    See you at the movies--Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, July 8-11, 2015.

    CATEGORIES:

    • Video Graffiti
    • Dramatic Nights

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Mykonos Biennale is an intellectual event which brings together the work of artists from all over the world to create something new, to break the borders of art, using the telluric energy and hermetic beauty of this cosmopolitan island.

    The international multicultural events will interact with the local memories, traditions and historical spaces creating a unique experimental event.

    The art exhibitions, the installations, and performances of the artists, the musicians and dance group will spread through out the monasteries, the museums, the old houses, the ancient island of Delos, the windmills and other monumental buildings, like a treasure map of the old island. The heart of the Mykonos Biennale is the video film festival which in 2015 is divided into three categories:

    Video Graffiti - Throughout the old town of Mykonos, famous for its white building and thus often called the bride of the Aegean, art videos will be projected on the walls of houses and gardens transforming this town that never sleeps into a living theatre of video graffiti.

    Dramatic Nights - A selection narrative short films, documentary and art videos will be screened in the open air theatre of the island and at the important Gryparion center.

    Submissions, given the creators permission, will be shown on our website.


    Antidote is the theme of Mykonos Biennale 2015.

    Everyday like a poison, world news infects humanity, plunging the human conscience into a deep hibernation of frantic inactivity, in an attempt to find some serenity to endure in until the end.
    However they say that if a tarantula bites you the only way to escape death is to dance day and night, jumping from the pain and staying awake, because if you let go and fall asleep you are lost. Such a crazy celebration of consciousness is the Mykonos Biennale as its theme for 2015 is the Antidote.
    What is the antidote? Is it love? Is it power? Or is it sorcery? Always the artist, the scientist, and the alchemist have searched for the answer to immortality, the philosophers’ stone, and the magic portal. Their quest, itself, holds the answer for by it they have already danced the first steps of the Great Awakening.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with unique people and places outside of the bustle of the city. Taking in a Rural Route program is like choosing the road less travelled, and learning something new about our constantly amazing world. Whether it be a fictional backpacking drama set in the Peruvian Andes, a personal/experimental work about life in a Kazakh village, or a documentary about an organic, Appalachian turnip farm, our mission is to screen work about rare people and cultures normally overlooked by the mainstream media. Our content consists of top quality, cutting edge contemporary and archival work from sources both local and far, far away.

    Since 2002, the Rural Route Film Festival has been centered in New York City, where both founders (originally from Iowa) met working in the film industry. Whether screening in New York, or on one of our many tour dates, our content is more relevant than ever, tackling some of the most important topics of the day within the slow food movement, global warming/environmental arena, and life sustainability symposium.

    A legendary 3-week blow-out of worldwide fantastic cinema taking place each July in the heart of Montreal, now deep in planning its 19th edition.

    We’re currently on the lookout for features and shorts to showcase at this summer’s event. What exactly are we looking for? While predominantly a fantasy/action/horror festival, Fantasia has always embraced films whose sheer individuality puts them in a genre of their own. If you’re not sure whether your film is right for us, consider that we’ve showcased everything from captivating dramas, eccentric comedies, provocative documentaries, mind-blowing experimental works, musicals, even atypical children’s films. In other words, set our minds’ eyes on fire and we’ll do everything possible to get your film seen. Feel free to browse our 2013 website for a better understanding of our programming tastes.

    Taking things a step further, in 2012, Fantasia launched the Frontières International Co-Production Market as well as a film market component. Our 2013 Frontières lineup featured dazzling new projects from Joe Dante, Buddy Giovinazzo, Bobcat Goldthwait, Richard Stanley and Andrzej Zulawski, to name a few. Our 2014 lineup included projects by Simon Rumley, Jacob Tierney and Dario Argento.

    Any work produced in the past 18 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public’s Prize.

    There is no entry fee for Quebec productions (note that Qc prods must be submitted through our website and not here).

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    INTRODUCTION

    The Ojai Film Festival offers residents and visitors an opportunity to celebrate the art of film in the uniquely inviting environment of the Ojai Valley.

    Ojai is an ideal site for a film festival, both because of its exceptional natural beauty and it proximity to the filmmaking capital of the world. It is appropriate that a community noted for its strong commitment to supporting the arts, as reflected in the various arts-related events that take place here every year, should host an event dedicated to the celebration of the only truly new art form of the Twentieth Century.

    The Film Festival brings to its audience a great diversity of unique motion pictures from around the world, including many groundbreaking works that would otherwise be inaccessible. At the same time, it provides a valuable service to filmmakers by giving them access to a highly appreciative audience of intelligent and informed film lovers.

    We are particularly proud of the increasing number of films shown at our festival which are later honored by the Motion Picture Academy.

    Over the years, we have shown many recipients of Academy Award nominations for "Best Documentary Short" and "Best Animated Short" and awarded prizes to most of them.

    THEME

    The Ojai Film Festival has chosen the phrase "Enriching The Human Spirit Through Film" as its guiding principle, and each year, the Festival focuses on specific topics within that theme.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Promoting British & International Horror Films!

    The British Horror Film Festival is one of the most important and influential horror film festivals in the UK and has a rapidly growing international reputation.

    Our goal is to regularly grow the number of screens that the festival is screened on, simultaneously around the UK. We have been growing these screens since 2011 when we screened the festival on 2 screens, Bournemouth and London's Leicester Square.

    This gives your movie a chance to be seen by a wider audience and have a one day theatrical release in the UK, as well as a prestigious Leicester Square premiere/debut.

    We also have the 'Horror Awards'. These beautiful Crystal Awards are presented at the end of the festival at an awards ceremony.
    Previous winners of these prestigious awards have gone on to secure distribution deals in the UK and abroad. The 2013 awards were sponsored by Haunted: After Dark.

    Each film screened is nominated in at least one awards category and often many others.

    We are committed to increasing the profile of independent horror films and film-makers. A number of reviewers are present at all our screenings, to ensure you get plenty of global publicity, both on-line and in print for your film.

    Prepare to scream ... about films!

    Through film, art, and gender studies, Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Festival celebrates and examines the diversity of gender identities and expressions, as well as of sexual identities and orientations, while embracing varied and alternative feminisms.

    Imperfectu explores the infinite possibilities that sex, gender, and sexuality fields offer to us, questioning the primacy of the conventions to which the binary gender system and heteronormativity limit us. Furthermore, this festival gives room to feminist expressions that know how to include these infinite possibilities in their discourses.

    FOR OUR 2015 EDITION IN TIJUANA (MEXICO), WE WILL FOCUS ON POSTCOLONIAL PERSPECTIVES, MAINLY IN LATIN AMERICA.

    For more information, please visit our website: www.imperfectu.com

    Imperfectu explora las infinitas posibilidades que los terrenos del sexo, el género y la sexualidad nos ofrecen, cuestionando la primacía de las convenciones a las que el sistema binario de género y la heteronormatividad nos limitan. Asimismo, este festival da cabida a expresiones feministas que saben incluir estas infinitas posibilidades en sus discursos.

    Through film, art, and gender studies, Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Festival celebrates and examines the diversity of gender identities and expressions, as well as of sexual identities and orientations, while embracing varied and alternative feminisms.

    Imperfectu explores the infinite possibilities that sex, gender, and sexuality fields offer to us, questioning the primacy of the conventions to which the binary gender system and heteronormativity limit us. Furthermore, this festival gives room to feminist expressions that know how to include these infinite possibilities in their discourses.

    FOR OUR 2015 EDITION IN TIJUANA (MEXICO), WE WILL FOCUS ON POSTCOLONIAL PERSPECTIVES, MAINLY IN LATIN AMERICA.

    For more information, please visit our website: www.imperfectu.com

    Imperfectu explora las infinitas posibilidades que los terrenos del sexo, el género y la sexualidad nos ofrecen, cuestionando la primacía de las convenciones a las que el sistema binario de género y la heteronormatividad nos limitan. Asimismo, este festival da cabida a expresiones feministas que saben incluir estas infinitas posibilidades en sus discursos.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Shock & Gore is the twisted offspring of The Electric Cinema in Birmingham, one of the country’s leading independent cinemas, and follows The Electric’s own objective since it was relaunched in 2004 – namely to offer the kind of screenings and events you just can’t get anywhere else.

    While a large part of the festival focuses on horror in all its shapes and forms, that’s not what we’re solely interested in. We’re looking to celebrate the weird, the wonderful and the fantastic, which includes science fiction, fantasy and the kind of narrative dramas that take human experiences to the extreme.

    We’re also placed right at the heart of British film-making, festival head Tom Lawes and festival programmer David Baldwin are both keen filmmakers themselves and looking to give exposure to fellow directors and writers with the festival’s official competition.

    Shock & Gore is the twisted offspring of The Electric Cinema in Birmingham, one of the country’s leading independent cinemas, and follows The Electric’s own objective since it was relaunched in 2004 – namely to offer the kind of screenings and events you just can’t get anywhere else.

    While a large part of the festival focuses on horror in all its shapes and forms, that’s not what we’re solely interested in. We’re looking to celebrate the weird, the wonderful and the fantastic, which includes science fiction, fantasy and the kind of narrative dramas that take human experiences to the extreme.

    We’re also placed right at the heart of British film-making, festival head Tom Lawes and festival programmer David Baldwin are both keen filmmakers themselves and looking to give exposure to fellow directors and writers with the festival’s official competition.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Louisville Film Arts Institute (LFAII) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and promoting the film arts in Kentucky. To help facilitate this goal, it has created Louisville’s International Festival of Film (LIFF) which is a sustainable annual film festival located in Louisville, KY. The festival will showcase independent film, while supporting the cultural diversity of the area.

    The festival is uniquely designed to support film education in Kentucky. In its first year, there were over sixty high school and college students who participated in and helped run the film festival. They gained valuable experience through seminar attendance, Red Carpet interviewing, and networking. We expanded their involvement in our second year by obtaining Final Draft and AVID editing systems for select schools.

    In 2011, we added the Kentucky Youth Film Festival, to allow students the experience of pitching, producing and promoting their work. Due to an overwhelming response from students, we are excited to invite the students and their families back. The Kentucky Youth Film Festival is a regular feature to Louisville's International Festival of Film. Each year the school system is handed a new subject for the students to create, develop and produce a film short or animation, depending on the individual student and his or her interest.

    Our third year also saw our vision for the Kentucky Legends of Fame come to fruition, with the induction of our very first recipient, Ms. Lily Tomlin. As a kick-off and fundraising event, Ms. Tomlin also performed her incredible solo show—giving our festival unprecedented visibility.

    Our Co-Founder, CONRAD BACHMANN (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0045497/), a Louisville native and graduate of Valley High School, attended the University of Kentucky before venturing out west in 1957 to pursue his Hollywood dream. Over his distinguished career, Conrad earned credits in more than 35 films, hundreds of television shows, countless commercials and served as Governor of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for 12 years, and on the Academy Executive Committee. As Chair of the Activities for the Academy he produced countless productions of hit television shows for a professional development series for all Peer Groups. Fifty Years later, Conrad came full circle with the announcement of his plan to develop and annual international film festival in his hometown of Louisville.

    With the creation of LIFF, Conrad is helping to make a difference in the lives of future filmmakers around the world. Although Conrad moved to Hollywood over 50 years ago, his heart never left Louisville. His goal is to bring Hollywood and the artistic process of film making to the region and state. LIFF is his way of giving back the opportunities given to him, while offering a unique forum for others to achieve their dreams. Conrad is passionately dedicated to the success of the festival and wants to share his beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky with the world.

    LIFF shall bring together talented students, professional filmmakers, industry experts, educators, avid movie-goers, and film connoisseurs from around the globe for a highly interactive weekend of nationally recognized and undiscovered gems, educational seminars, and networking events.

Over his distinguished career, Conrad earned credits in more than 35 films, hundreds of television shows, countless commercials and served as Governor of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for 12 years, and on the Academy Executive Committee. As Chair of the Activities for the Academy he produced countless productions of hit television shows for a professional development series for all Peer Groups. Fifty Years later, Conrad came full circle with the announcement of his plan to develop and annual international film festival in his hometown of Louisville.

    With the creation of LIFF, Conrad is helping to make a difference in the lives of future filmmakers around the world. Although Conrad moved to Hollywood over 50 years ago, his heart never left Louisville. His goal is to bring Hollywood and the artistic process of film making to the region and state. LIFF is his way of giving back the opportunities given to him, while offering a unique forum for others to achieve their dreams. Conrad is passionately dedicated to the success of the festival and wants to share his beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky with the world.

    LIFF shall bring together talented students, professional filmmakers, industry experts, educators, avid movie-goers, and film connoisseurs from around the globe for a highly interactive weekend of nationally recognized and undiscovered gems, educational seminars, and networking events.

Each new production provides invaluable guidance and potential opportunity for filmmakers seeking to advance their craft. Recent films that have been shot in Northern Ontario include The Captive (Atom Egoyan), Midnight Sun (Roger Spottiswoode) and October Gale (Ruba Nadda).

Through a partnership with the Film Circuit, an initiative that was developed by Cinéfest and is now housed by the Toronto International Film Festival Group, Cinéfest Sudbury provides filmmakers the chance to reach a wider audience as Film Circuit programmers attend Cinéfest to consider Festival selections and submissions to screen in their home community. Overall, Cinéfest’s commitment to excellence attracts filmmakers seeking to showcase their art to an audience hungry for cinema.
