ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
INTRODUCTION
The Fourth Annual Festival, held in San Francisco, is a tribute to the performers and directors of your film. Best Actors Film Festival is created to entice film makers to reward the performers on their film in a way that truly acknowledges their work. The Directors and Actors deserve special recognition for their performances. Celebrate with us your actors and director by recognizing their craft and commitment to their work. Shari Carlson, the Creative Director of the Film Festival, has over 30 years of mastery, training actors. A filmmaker herself, Shari designed this annual Festival to appreciate the talented team of Actors, Directors and Filmmakers. The Festival Director, Jeff Carlson has worked tirelessly from the first festival to ensure the success of our festival. All films are screened in their entirety by our screening committee. Jeff recommends you submit your most talented Actors and Directors to our festival for special recognition.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Every filmmaker works hard at casting their project, directing the actors, and relies on the actor to portray their vision to audiences. An Actors’ performance determines the effect your film will have on an audience and how well it will be received. With talented performers your film is successful. Celebrate with us your actors and director by recognizing their craft and commitment to their work. We hold an Awards Gala. Actors in Accepted Films will be chosen for screening by our screening committee. If you are able to attend it increases your chance of having your film screened. The Winners and the video and photos are posted on our website.
