Our Mission:

• Get your film seen by a worldwide audience. (Live events in LA, NYC, Toronto, Singapore, Atlanta & more)

• Give filmmakers an opportunity to make money on their films. (Accomplished through our partnership with SnagFilms).

• Let the filmmaker attend a world class festival from the comforts of their own home.

• Create opportunities for filmmakers to create their own local event in their home town.

• Become the biggest short film festival in the world.

A live, online, interactive, global, short film festival that extends and broadens viewers outside the common film festival experience and allows a much larger audience to enjoy the films from the comforts of their own homes.

The Unofficial Google+ Film Festival in partnership with SnagFilms is complete with several film panels as well as live Q&A sessions with the filmmakers after each block of short films. This new and innovative festival is the future of the digital age for filmmakers and film fans everywhere. Movies are seen by thousands of attentive and film loving people around the world all at the same time (instead of being limited by a smaller geographical location).

This festival can be attended from anywhere in the world with a computer, smart phone, or tablet. We strive to bring more attention and recognition to brilliant filmmaking being created around the world and help to connect filmmakers with one another.

The festival’s premiere partnership with SnagFilms will enable selected films and web series to extend the worldwide viewing audience. SnagFilms’ world-class social viewing platform is the online home to thousands of professionally produced film and videos from independent creators.

In 2012, in addition to the online festival, we held live events in Los Angeles, CA and Asheville, NC. In 2013 we are looking to expand to at least 10 cities across the globe and plan to involve our accepted filmmakers into creating and participating in these live events.
