    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Hell's Half Mile Film & Music Festival (HHM) is the perfect mix of independent film and live indie music. You may not have heard of us yet, but we’ll try to leave you with a lasting impression as we have with past guests. "I don't remember much of my two years going to Hell's Half Mile. That's how much fun I had." – Rider Strong, “Cabin Fever” and two time HHM guest. (note: your experience may vary)

    Our taste is eclectic, everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to super hero film. Our goal is to find "the little film that could" -- a bunch of them -- and bring the filmmakers together to take over the town of Bay City. Our primary concern is community, and the filmmakers who attend our long weekend walk away with lifelong friends and future collaborators.

    In the last eight years over 100 directors, producers, screenwriters and actors have joined our growing audience. We provide travel and accommodations to a limited number of filmmakers, plus all-access passes and catered receptions for all attending filmmakers. All venues are within a few block radius and hotels are within walking distance, making it super easy to get around. Visit hhmfest.com for links to the venues and video recaps of the 2012 and 2013 festivals.

    We schedule events to help you connect with each other and the local community. Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including unique outings that give you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema. "I've never been to a fest that has such a positive immediate energy like yours, particularly letting the filmmakers get to know each other." - David Spaltro "Things I Don't Understand"

    Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including a unique outing that gives you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema. Once you become an HHM alum you’ll receive fee waivers for future projects and all-access passes for subsequent HHM Fests, whether you have a film in our program or not. Additionally, upon selection, your first-year submission fees are refunded, making it easy (and affordable) to submit to another festival. “Hell's Half Mile gives me warm feelings in my heart. The warm feeling in my pants is possibly unrelated. It’s worth every minute and it's the kind of festival that you make movies for.” – Kenny Stevenson, writer and actor, "Love, Sex and Missed Connections".

    Filmmakers are encouraged to participate in panel discussions, receptions and other events. Because we are beginning to foster student and local filmmaking, we provide opportunities for guest filmmakers to present a workshop or lecture focused on a specific topic or specialty. Other guests are invited to screen our student and local short films and give constructive feedback to the filmmakers. This type of mentoring helps to strengthen local filmmaking and continue our relationships with area universities.

As environmental issues become increasingly global, understanding our individual roles in the biosphere and the global human community is more important than ever. Yet many of us don't appreciate how our actions, lifestyles, and cultures affect the world we live in.

    Film is a powerful medium for breaking through the information overload of modern life, helping us connect with the natural world around us in ways we otherwise wouldn’t. With our emphasis on the intersection between people and the environment, ACFF provides a venue to explore these issues and bring them back to our own lives, through high quality films and discussions with filmmakers and other experts.

LIFF primarily supports the work of outstanding, fresh new talent in fiction and documentary filmmaking (in both features and shorts) and in world genre cinema – and work from existing talent that has not received deserved exposure yet in the UK.

    Many of our most successful and highest rated feature-length films are sourced via Withoutabox submissions and we are anticipating some exciting new discoveries this year to help make our next edition the best yet. The short film competitions and panoramas in LIFF are programmed almost entirely from Withoutabox submissions. For reference, the full programme for LIFF 2013 is online at leedsfilm.com.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Global Peace Film Festival is premised on a broad definition of peace based on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s statement: “Peace is not only the absence of conflict, but also the presence of justice.” The festival uses film to draw together people from all walks of life to be inspired by compelling storytelling and for them then to engage actively within their own lives and communities to make the world a better place than they found it. Action, engagement and participation are our bywords; and we seek films that make us laugh, think, cry, sit taller in our seats and ask what can I do? We are seeking films that either have companion impact and outreach campaigns or ones for which GPFF can build resources and activities from our community partners locally and from around the world. We do not view the festival as a passive exhibition event, but a commitment to building relationships and resources aimed at increasing the presence of justice all year round.

  • The New York City Horror Film FestivalNext Deadline: 06/30/2014

    CATEGORIES:

    • Feature Film
    • Short Film

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    One of the worlds leading genre film festivals focusing solely on Horror, Science Fiction, and Thillers. Each year the NYCHFF celebrates both the horror classics we grew up with and the new horror films & filmmakers who create them. Each year the NYCHFF fills the city with special screenings, parties, celebrity guests and free giveaways. The New York City Horror Film Festival is an event not to be missed. We have found that the independent film community nationwide, be it festivals, film websites, or even some of the most popular indie magazines, tend to shy away from these genre films, which is really a shame. Our philosophy is that the horror film is as important as any genre. In fact, many great Hollywood directors started out making low budget horror films. Some of the most influential filmmakers in this category include: Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather), Oliver Stone (Platoon), Sam Raimi (Spiderman), Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) and Wes Craven (Scream). We feel that the horror film may just be more important for the future of film making than any other genre out there!

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Our purpose is simple: to promote the works of H.P. Lovecraft (as well as cosmic horror & weird tales) through cinematic adaptations by student, amateur, and professional filmmakers.

    The fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, though still popular in print, has fared rather poorly when adapted to film by commercial filmmakers. Most of the problem stems from both a failure to capture the essence of Lovecraft's unique and meticulously developed atmosphere and an inability to remain faithful to the story without adding unnecessary Hollywood devices in order to sell the film.

    We hope that through this festival, H.P. Lovecraft will be taken seriously as a writer and his work more faithfully adapted to film.
