Celebrate Independence
Celebrate Independence Film Project

What does independence mean to you? (not the City of Independence but the idea of independence as in being independent) If you can answer that question in a three minute or less video we’d like to see it. The Celebrate Independence Film Project is part of the recently announced Independence Film, Art & Music Fest. The best submissions will be screened at the inaugural IFAM Fest August 8 - 11, 2013.

Any and all cinematic forms will be accepted whether it is a standard talking head format, music video, comedy, animation – whatever the filmmaker chooses. We’re looking for a little bit of everything and encourage your unique ideas. The best entry will receive a $1,000 grand prize and will be screened at the festival.
