MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Flatland Film Festival cultivates an appreciation for film, video, and digital moving-image expression.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Based in Lubbock, Texas, Flatland Film Festival serves the citizens of this region and encourages artists working in this mode of expression.
Flatland Film Festival combines the art of independent filmmaking with the business of independent filmmaking, shuffling the emerging with the established in terms of vision, passion, and technology and dealing new directions for all.
Now in its ninth year, the Flatland Film Festival has begun to establish itself as a grassroots venue for independent short film. Flatland Film Festival is about the films, the filmmakers, and their audiences.
We offer cash prizes and an intimate environment in which to network with other filmmakers.
