MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The BLUE SNOWMAN FILM FESTIVAL - RIO DE JANEIRO main purpose is to help and encourage independent filmmakers and writers by providing a showcase platform for their talents in a sociable networking environment.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Festival started few years ago as a student project and became bigger enough to open to other film schools to submit their films.
In the last three editions the festival recivied many emails from filmmakers around the world asking for being part of the festival so we decided to open globally.
The 2010 Edition we brought from Brazil a famous film director and one of the most famous TV actress to be part of the jury.
All films featured in the BLUE SNOWMAN FILM FESTIVAL - RIO DE JANEIRO are selected based only on the overall quality and merits of the work. We aim to discover and recognize simply the best new, original voices in storytelling from around the world.
The 2013 Festival will take place in Rio de Janeiro - BRAZIL. ORGANIZERS
