MISSION & OBJECTIVE

2050 is not just a moment in time, it is a time of raised consciousness. Daytona Beach 2050 is searching for the innovators and luminaries of the next age in filmmaking. Content creators across the Film / Comic/ Gaming genres meet.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Relaunched in 2015 with a new name, and a new venue, the former Daytona Beach Film Festival is embracing its 'Fun Coast' reputation with a three-day celebration merging a Film Festival with a Comic Convention and competitive Gaming into one world - Daytona Beach 2050.

Filmmakers will enjoy an array of activities created especially for them in addition to opportunities to relax, kick off their shoes and enjoy our beautiful new beachfront location!

2050 Daytona Beach will have unique opportunities for filmmakers to network, share their films and browse the Film Expo - a vendor experience geared specifically toward meeting the needs of Indie Auteurs. Breakout sessions will offer unprecedented opportunities to advance the craft of filmmaking and learn from industry professionals.

Since we know how much work goes into making, screening and promoting a film, we're also ready to spoil our filmmakers with parties and special events. The theaters are close to the Convention Center, which is close to the Hotels, which is close to the Beach! once you land in Daytona Beach for WATCH2050, simply park the car, settle in, and enjoy your weekend at the World's Most Famous Beach.

Submitting to the festival grants the right to Daytona Beach 2050 to utilize an excerpt from any film submitted and accepted for exhibition for promotional purposes associated with this program and festival.
