September Film Programming Update

Filmmaker

Our programming team has been screening, discussing, arguing and carefully deciding on the final few films that will makeup the official selection for our film festival, which kicks off September 15th.

If you’ve submitted a film, hold tight. You will be notified if your film has been selected. We received an amazing crop of film to choose from and we’re very excited about reporting our selections soon.

The development team has been ironing out community partnerships and will also be reporting those and exciting new additions to the festival’s dynamic.

Stay tuned to our industry shout-outs via Twitter or spark a convo with us on Facebook. We’re chatty, so feel free to voice your film thoughts with us!
