    Find out more

    CATEGORIES:

    • Feature Film Project-in-Progress
    • Documentary Project-in-Progress
    • Television Project-in-Progress
    • Video/Computer-Gaming

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    FILM-COM Financing & Distribution Market is the only market in the world with a primary emphasis on works in the packaging phase that need completion financing, co-production partners or distribution interest to launch projects.

    FILM-COM is a pragmatically focused packaging, financing and distribution market that connects works-in-progress or newly shot feature, television, documentary or video-gaming concepts with equity & lender financiers, domestic and foreign distribution companies, P&A funding, product integration specialists, potential co-production partners, agents, qualified producers reps and packaging partners who are connected to all of the above.

    FILM-COM has
    > The New Project Pitch Expo [NPPE] - overhauled for maximum involvement by all industry executives
    > Speed Meet n' Greet with all execs, prior to NPPE
    > Packaging, Financing & Distribution Summit -- hard core, useful panels on launching scripted television concepts, unscripted television concepts, independently capitalized feature films, documentaries, video-gaming and transmedia projects, as well has how to pitch and not to pitch
    > An online new product catalog that remains available to execs until the project gets made
    > Networking gatherings with execs - morning, noon and night
    > Annual Film/Television Gala
    > Opportunities for filmmakers to buy drinks for any industry execs they wish to approach [the execs are participating to look for new projects]
    > And more ways to provide useful assistance to content creators.

    The primary assessment is on a project's marketability.

    FILM-COM is NOT a 'festival' geared for the consumer public; It is a transactional and educational business market designed to establish relationships for creators of new content seeking packaging, financing and distribution relationships.

    FILM-COM has FILMOLUTION partnerships with the SCORE-COM Faith in Film Conference, Script-Com Screenwriting Workshop, Composers for Film & Television Symposium, Songwriters for Film & Television Forum, and emerging Latino CineTV Conference.

    FILM-COM is designed so that content creators can spend days meeting industry executives who can make a difference, rather than an event where one is made to feel lucky to get 5 minutes of someone's time. The execs at FILM-COM are deliberately participating to interact with you.

Our 10-day festival is committed to showcasing contemporary, independent films that will enlighten and entertain our audiences. We look for films that make us better people -- films with soul. This festival is about FILMS and the people who MAKE them!

    NEW! THIS YEAR...

    SNOW, MAN (all lengths): Snow. The white, fluffy stuff that falls from the sky. It builds character. And is the reason our first sentence after "How are you?" is "Cold enough for ya?". We KNOW snow in Canada and want to see how filmmakers from other, wintery countries embrace it -- or not! Show us your SNOW, MAN.

    FOOD FiILMS (all lengths): For this NEW! category, we're hungry for films -- dramatic and documentary -- that feature food. Creating it, growing it, playing with it... tantalize us!

    DANCE ON FILM (short films): In partnership with Edmonton's MILE ZERO DANCE, we are looking for stories that lift us out of our seats and remind us of the power in dance!

  • Mykonos BiennaleNext Deadline: 05/21/2015

    CATEGORIES:

    • Video Graffiti
    • Dramatic Nights

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Mykonos Biennale is an intellectual event which brings together the work of artists from all over the world to create something new, to break the borders of art, using the telluric energy and hermetic beauty of this cosmopolitan island.

    The international multicultural events will interact with the local memories, traditions and historical spaces creating a unique experimental event.

    The art exhibitions, the installations, and performances of the artists, the musicians and dance group will spread through out the monasteries, the museums, the old houses, the ancient island of Delos, the windmills and other monumental buildings, like a treasure map of the old island. The heart of the Mykonos Biennale is the video film festival which in 2015 is divided into two categories:

    Video Graffiti - Throughout the old town of Mykonos, famous for its white building and thus often called the bride of the Aegean, art videos will be projected on the walls of houses and gardens transforming this town that never sleeps into a living theatre of video graffiti.

    Dramatic Nights - A selection narrative short films, documentary and art videos will be screened in the open air theatre of the island and at the important Gryparion center.

    Submissions, given the creators permission, will be shown on our website.


    Antidote is the theme of Mykonos Biennale 2015.

    Everyday like a poison, world news infects humanity, plunging the human conscience into a deep hibernation of frantic inactivity, in an attempt to find some serenity to endure in until the end.
    However they say that if a tarantula bites you the only way to escape death is to dance day and night, jumping from the pain and staying awake, because if you let go and fall asleep you are lost. Such a crazy celebration of consciousness is the Mykonos Biennale as its theme for 2015 is the Antidote.
    What is the antidote? Is it love? Is it power? Or is it sorcery? Always the artist, the scientist, and the alchemist have searched for the answer to immortality, the philosophers’ stone, and the magic portal. Their quest, itself, holds the answer for by it they have already danced the first steps of the Great Awakening.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    MOONDANCE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

    Our objective for this competition and film festival is to inspire, promote and encourage screenwriters and independent filmmakers, and the very best work in film & film scripts, stage plays, TV scripts, musical film scores, librettos, radio plays & short stories. Moondance provides a professional forum in which those creative, talented & dedicated artists can have the opportunity for their work to be viewed and accepted by the powers that be, within the international film & entertainment community.

    Our work on reaching out toward filmmakers, writers and film score composers everywhere in the world is primary and ongoing. Writers and filmmakers from all six continents, and from a wide diversity of ethnic and linguistic groups are an integral part of our mission and goals. We seek to inspire and invigorate this creative potential to perceive, conceptualize, and produce their works for the benefit of the world society. We are dedicated to preserving their accumulated accomplishments and visions as expressed through the art of film, music and writings.

    Moondance promises to raise awareness of the invaluable contributions of creative talents to the entertainment community. Equity in the film industry does not mean stifling some voices so that others may be heard; it does not demand the compromising of personal standards to achieve success. Equity creates new standards which accommodate and nurture differences. Equity fosters the individual voice, investing talented people with confidence in their own authority. Equity unleashes the creative potential. We see the equal treatment of all, and the equal respect for all responses they explore, as essential to their and our ultimate goals.

    Independent filmmakers, writers and composers are vocal and active participants in the social forces that shape our culture. They portray people as three-dimensional, complex human beings and thus defy the demeaning and pervasive stereotypes perpetuated by the mainstream media.

    We are also dedicated to promoting visibility for women in Hollywood and their impact on the film industry, and we see this as a means to disrupt and correct the misogynous, fantastical, passive, destructive and denigrating visual representation of females that has, historically, been rendered by men in media and has for so long and so plentifully pervaded our visual culture.

    Moondance promotes, encourages, educates and rewards non-violent conflict resolution in the arts & film. Our much-coveted Columbine Awards are given to the filmmakers, writers and composers (of any age) who best depict alternatives to violence as a method of dealing with conflicts, whether personal, local, national or international, and/or show why violence as a solution to conflict is ultimately counter-productive and inhumane.

    Moondance is dedicated to promoting environmental awareness and preservation, and we award the Calypso Award to those filmmakers, writers and composers who create meaningful, educational and entertaining works toward this goal, and inspire others to do likewise.

    Our mission is to entertain, to inform, to inspire, to encourage and to educate. We believe that films and scripts can contribute to a healthier society and that films and scripts should encourage the active involvement of audiences to connect and act collectively to address social challenges.

    Winning and finalist films and scripts are innovative, distinctive, compelling and engaging, relevant to varied audiences and encourage participation. We are eager to continue to be one of the most important film festivals in the world by being innovative, risk-taking, and open to new thinking, new concepts, new talent, and new ways of telling stories.

    Our film programs are always well rounded, entertaining, and enlightening, highlighting diverse cultures, opinions, and stories. We welcome individual expression and are committed to presenting diverse points of view. Moondance aims to entertain, increase awareness, provide multiple viewpoints, address complex social issues, provide forums for deliberation, and strengthen ties between a large variety of international audiences.

    The long-term vision of the Moondance International Film Festival is to preserve and revitalize our intangible heritage, cultivate creative diversity, develop an intercultural dialogue, and stimulate this creative resource. Our mission is to present a vibrant and growing collection of films and writings, which is an ideal means for communication across perceived boundaries of race, culture, age and gender. These works document the complexity and depth of men's & women's experiences that will become widely accessible within the world film industry and to the public, and will encourage and inspire others to write, compose music and to make films.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Other Worlds Austin is the one-and-only film festival in Austin, TX dedicated to Science Fiction Filmmaking. With a team of programmers who love science fiction, write science fiction, or make science fiction films of their own, we are in this for one reason only, to put on a great festival. We are looking for great stories that aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of the audience, thrilling them both visually and intellectually. OWA is firmly committed to supporting exciting filmmakers, by giving them exhibition opportunities for films that are often overlooked on the film festival circuit.

    Other Worlds Austin is dedicated to bringing the best in SciFi to Austin, TX. Our programming team looks past budgets or the Hollywood push to find great stories, and give them their Austin premiere. Although we would love to be a film's World or US Premiere, there are plenty of films making the festival circuit that right now have very little opportunity to play this town, one that has embraced Science Fiction for years and may just be the center of 'geek' culture. Why wait for a film to come out on VOD (or at all) if we can give it a chance to screen in a theatre before an audience of SciFi fans.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Buy. Sell. Deal. Market the World at the FlipsideTV Film Festival and Film Market. If you are ready for distribution, then we are ready for you.

    Features. Shorts. Series and Screenplays. Anything! We take your project beyond the festival.

    This unique online film festival and film market will market finalists to thousands of buyers, distributors and producers.

    The FlipsideTV Film Festival maintains the sole intention of giving independent producers, screenplay writers, and directors a means to get in front of buyers, distributors, agents, financiers & industry pros, as well as a film watching audience.

    This is an ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL AND FILM MARKET that runs twice yearly. Movies play to a large subscriber base and are also exposed to potential acquisition and distribution agents.

    Finalists are marketed to thousands of buyers, distributors, licensors, and producers who attend major events like AFM and Cannes.

    Since movies play to a "subscriber base," the festival plays more like a traditional film festival and movies are not available on the open web.

    All official selections play to this audience for a one-month period and finalists are offered distribution and winners may get additional awards including theatrical exhibition to get the projects out there!

By working directly with filmmakers independent of budget, origin, style or genre we celebrate the art of film and filmmakers in addition to:
    -Setting high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal.
    -Working collaboratively with filmmakers and producers to increase access to quality film arts, presentations, programs, and projects.
    -Enjoy the art of Action on Film in all of its glory from the delicate movement of the wings of a butterfly to a blazing shoot out on the streets of an inner city.
    -The festival takes place in Theaters and in other professional settings such as the beautiful Pasadena Playhouse, there is nothing wrong with festivals that showcase films in other types of venues but we believe that we must give our filmmakers and writers the best venues to showcase their work as possible.
    - Over the years people have come to understand that Action On Film does not just mean action films it means the action the filmmaker takes to bring his or her dream to the screen and the reaction of the audiences to that work.
    -Oh yeah, we love filmmakers and writers too

    The Action On Film International Film Festival has been honored with being named to many Top Festival Lists both Domestic and Internatioinal. Perhaps it is the free video interviews, or Black Tie Dinner and Award Shows or just the great way filmmakers and writers are treated. Whatever the reason, the AOF Team is proud to be acknowledged by MovieMaker Magazine and for being placed in such high regard as some of the world's other top film festivals.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    INTRODUCTION

    The Ojai Film Festival offers residents and visitors an opportunity to celebrate the art of film in the uniquely inviting environment of the Ojai Valley.

    Ojai is an ideal site for a film festival, both because of its exceptional natural beauty and it proximity to the filmmaking capital of the world. It is appropriate that a community noted for its strong commitment to supporting the arts, as reflected in the various arts-related events that take place here every year, should host an event dedicated to the celebration of the only truly new art form of the Twentieth Century.

    The Film Festival brings to its audience a great diversity of unique motion pictures from around the world, including many groundbreaking works that would otherwise be inaccessible. At the same time, it provides a valuable service to filmmakers by giving them access to a highly appreciative audience of intelligent and informed film lovers.

    We are particularly proud of the increasing number of films shown at our festival which are later honored by the Motion Picture Academy.

    Over the years, we have shown many recipients of Academy Award nominations for "Best Documentary Short" and "Best Animated Short" and awarded prizes to most of them.

    THEME

    The Ojai Film Festival has chosen the phrase "Enriching The Human Spirit Through Film" as its guiding principle, and each year, the Festival focuses on specific topics within that theme.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Louisville Film Arts Institute (LFAII) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and promoting the film arts in Kentucky. To help facilitate this goal, it has created Louisville’s International Festival of Film (LIFF) which is a sustainable annual film festival located in Louisville, KY. The festival will showcase independent film, while supporting the cultural diversity of the area.

    The festival is uniquely designed to support film education in Kentucky. In its first year, there were over sixty high school and college students who participated in and helped run the film festival. They gained valuable experience through seminar attendance, Red Carpet interviewing, and networking. We expanded their involvement in our second year by obtaining Final Draft and AVID editing systems for select schools.

    In 2011, we added the Kentucky Youth Film Festival, to allow students the experience of pitching, producing and promoting their work. Due to an overwhelming response from students, we are excited to invite the students and their families back. The Kentucky Youth Film Festival is a regular feature to Louisville's International Festival of Film. Each year the school system is handed a new subject for the students to create, develop and produce a film short or animation, depending on the individual student and his or her interest.

    Our third year also saw our vision for the Kentucky Legends of Fame come to fruition, with the induction of our very first recipient, Ms. Lily Tomlin. As a kick-off and fundraising event, Ms. Tomlin also performed her incredible solo show—giving our festival unprecedented visibility.

    Our Co-Founder, CONRAD BACHMANN (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0045497/), a Louisville native and graduate of Valley High School, attended the University of Kentucky before venturing out west in 1957 to pursue his Hollywood dream. Over his distinguished career, Conrad earned credits in more than 35 films, hundreds of television shows, countless commercials and served as Governor of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for 12 years, and on the Academy Executive Committee. As Chair of the Activities for the Academy he produced countless productions of hit television shows for a professional development series for all Peer Groups. Fifty Years later, Conrad came full circle with the announcement of his plan to develop and annual international film festival in his hometown of Louisville.

    With the creation of LIFF, Conrad is helping to make a difference in the lives of future filmmakers around the world. Although Conrad moved to Hollywood over 50 years ago, his heart never left Louisville. His goal is to bring Hollywood and the artistic process of film making to the region and state. LIFF is his way of giving back the opportunities given to him, while offering a unique forum for others to achieve their dreams. Conrad is passionately dedicated to the success of the festival and wants to share his beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky with the world.

    LIFF shall bring together talented students, professional filmmakers, industry experts, educators, avid movie-goers, and film connoisseurs from around the globe for a highly interactive weekend of nationally recognized and undiscovered gems, educational seminars, and networking events.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Promoting British & International Horror Films!

    The British Horror Film Festival is one of the most important and influential horror film festivals in the UK and has a rapidly growing international reputation.

    Our goal is to regularly grow the number of screens that the festival is screened on, simultaneously around the UK. We have been growing these screens since 2011 when we screened the festival on 2 screens, Bournemouth and London's Leicester Square.

    This gives your movie a chance to be seen by a wider audience and have a one day theatrical release in the UK, as well as a prestigious Leicester Square premiere/debut.

    We also have the 'Horror Awards'. These beautiful Crystal Awards are presented at the end of the festival at an awards ceremony.
    Previous winners of these prestigious awards have gone on to secure distribution deals in the UK and abroad. The 2013 awards were sponsored by Haunted: After Dark.

    Each film screened is nominated in at least one awards category and often many others.

    We are committed to increasing the profile of independent horror films and film-makers. A number of reviewers are present at all our screenings, to ensure you get plenty of global publicity, both on-line and in print for your film.

    Prepare to scream ... about films!

    "As festivals go, think of it as the equivalent of a Robert Altman ensemble picture: plenty of stars getting equal treatment and no one towering as a headliner over the rest." Michael Miller, LA Times

    " Every year for a decade now, the festival has delivered music videos, short films, animation, features and documentaries. This event is the perfect combination of good people, good films ..." -Paul Booth, INFLUX Magazine

    "Time flies when you're watching a well-made film, and time has flown for a now 10-year-old Huntington Beach festival that specializes in indie flicks and the people who make them." -Matt Coker, OC Weekly

    "Throughout the years I really enjoyed the diverse and compelling films the SoCal Film Festival has programmed," Jason Kartalian, Filmmaker, Seahorses

    Our goal is to continually create a truly important film festival for independent filmmakers and screenwriters.

    As well as a offering plenty of screening opportunities for indie films, BIFF is developing into a crucial business hub for the low-budget film industry. BIFF hosts workshops and networking social events where attending filmmakers help each other out with marketing advice and EFM tips.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Asians On Film Festival is an extension of our website www.AsiansOnFilm.com, our Facebook pages www.facebook.com/AsiansOnFilm, and our youtube page www.youtube.com/ErikSunProductions where our primary focus is to provide recognition to Asian/Pacific Islanders who are minorities in their film industries either as actors, actresses, writers, directors, producers, editors and/or those who work in other aspects of filmmaking. We are however open and encourage films from any countries that have Asian talent to submit to provide our festivals guests with the best Asian short films.

    We also provide screenings throughout the year with the best films from our festival including a special year-end "best of" screening at Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, New York City and intend to expand to other cities as we grow giving selected filmmakers more oppportunities to screen their films after the festival at other venues.

    We are committed to promotion via news, information, interviews and recognition given by the festival. We hope to show the world talent that otherwise may be missed. With readership around the world the festival provides an amazing forum and recognition for great films.
