MISSION & OBJECTIVE

MISSION STATEMENT:
When asked what makes this festival different to others? As film makers ourselves, we know the hard work, sleepless nights, and passion that goes into a production - and once you've finished, the process of entering it throughout the film festival circuit.
We found lots of rules and limits with most, such as certain length requirements, specific genres, production dates within time frames, finalists must attend the event... and so forth.
Not that there is anything wrong with rules - they are what makes each festival their own!
However, this led us to create the Reel Time International Online Film Festival - a festival which has a range of categories to suit every productions, genre and length, available to all films worldwide, scripts, theatre plays, and music videos!
Not only do we have category winners - but we also have specialty winners such as Hair + Makeup, Costume Design, Best Actor, Best Actress and more!
We are not even specifically looking for films in high production quality, in fact, we love indie films with either a low or no budget! We are looking for films that are creative, entertaining, and made or written with passion!

Reel Time International Film Festival

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

2018 will mark the third year of the Reel Time International Online Film Festival.... where we award film makers in more ways than ever seen before.

Maybe your a low budget film maker? (Or in some cases... a no budget?) or you have "a great idea" for a film...but no experience or no funds, hence is why we have a Trailer category (Get that idea into a trailer to show for our Audience Award category!)

As film makers ourselves... I know the tough world of getting your film out there - Spending those countless hours and sleepless nights writing, producing, and finishing your film (getting all your family and friends on board)... and when you have finally come to rendering your dream onto that disc..... you think "So where do we go from here"

So you start searching for film festivals to enter your work, your dream... your baby really... and yes, there are thousands of great festivals out there - it's just getting into one!

And Excellent... your film made it! You will get your first festival screening, but oh wait - it's on the other side of the world? And it's not always possible to gather some fast funds to get you travelling!

That is why we created the Reel Time International Online Film Festival - where we have a dedicated YouTube channel, that will screen a portion of the finalists and winners entries (See the Terms and Conditions) in your own home - on the Festival Opening Night of July the 1st, 2018.

So grab your popcorn, beverages, and watch footage of the Reel Time International Online Film Festival finalists and winners with the rest of the world - see feedback live, invite your family and friends, get involved with the Audience Voting award categories, and so much more.

Good Luck, and please do not hesitate to contact us at RTIonlinefilmfestival@gmail.com with any queries!
