MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Believing that cinema allows us to see what they eye cannot, the SECRETS series of film festivals aims at divulging mysteries.

Secrets of Outer Space: Into the Great Beyond, will explore space travel, time travel, extra-terrestrial life, and alternative dimensions. Ten films, each between 5 and 10 minutes long, will be selected among narrative, music video, documentary, and experimental submissions. Revenue from tickets sales will go to the historic Gene Frankel Theatre (24 Bond Street, NYC).

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

As the telescopes of Galileo and Edwin Hubble decentered our sense of the universe and Antony van Leeuwenhoek’s microscope first revealed life hitherto invisible to the naked eye, Secrets of Outer Space will deploy a visual device - cinema - to plumb the mysteries of that which lay outside unassisted sensory knowledge. Rooted in the belief that exploration need not require a trip to an observatory or a ticket aboard Elon Musk’s SpaceX, this film festival will endeavor to go beyond where any film festival has gone before! Secrets of Outer Space: Into the Great Beyond, will explore space travel, time travel, extra-terrestrial life, and alternative dimensions. Ten films, each between 5 and 10 minutes long, will be selected among narrative, music video, documentary, and experimental submissions.

As with previous festivals – SECRETS of the Deep: Dreams on Film, Secrets of the Insect World, Secrets of the Heart, and Secrets of the Intoxicated Life - Secrets of Outer Space: Into the Great Beyond will select only ten films for a screening at the historic Gene Frankel Theatre in downtown NEW YORK CITY. Gene Frankel was best known for helping launch the careers of James Earl Jones, Cicely Tyson, Anne Bancroft, Frank Langella, Stacy Keach, Walter Matthau, and many more. http://www.genefrankeltheatre.com/gene-frankel.html

The screening will occur in January 2019. MANY formats - narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, music video, etc. - will be considered.

SUBMIT your 5 to 10 minute film via VIMEO or other streaming service. No dvds will be considered. Only streaming media.
