local filmmakers program

We understand that the cost of making a film can be taxing, so to encourage rising talent, we waive the festival submission fee to local talent. With numerous worldwide locations for festivals, this provides great opportunity for filmmakers around the world to enter the international film scene. Every year this program allows about 2,000 filmmakers to enter the festival circuit which perhaps otherwise they couldn’t, thanks to approximately $20,000 of yearly support. This opportunity opens the world of film. Think global, act local, right?
