MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Flagship City International Film Festival was formed in order to present our audiences with a diverse selection of some of the best independent films from around the world while providing our selected filmmakers and screenwriters with the exposure they deserve for all of their hard work and efforts.




ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Flagship City International Film Festival was formed in 2013 by Eerie Horror Film Festival President, Greg Ropp and his business partner, John Walkiewicz, a film producer and veteran of regional media.

Formed after years of planning and listening to the voices of indie filmmakers and screenwriters, The Flagship City International Film Festival was formed in order to present our audiences with a diverse selection of some of the best independent films from around the world while providing our selected filmmakers and screenwriters with the exposure they deserve for all of their hard work and efforts.

Our annual festival is open to all filmmakers and screenwriters from anywhere on planet Earth, ages 10 and up.

In addition to our multi-room film screenings, The Flagship International Film Festival will also feature panel discussions, workshops and networking opportunities for our attendees.

Prizes for best films and screenplays will be presented during our awards presentation and will be announced on our website, social networks and sent to our industry contacts.
