That’s right folks- TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT (Saturday Nov. 10) is the final deadline for our 2013 festival. If you’ve been procrastinating this is your last chance! Submissions at this point are through Withoutabox only. Check our SUBMISSIONS tab for details.
Folks, we pride ourselves on offering a quality experience for both our audience and our filmmakers. To ensure that we continue to abide by these high standards into our sixth season, we have made the decision to move the festival to February 20-24. There were a variety of circumstances that influenced our decision, and this is not something we took lightly.
We believe this is the best thing for the festival, for our fans, and for our filmmakers. We apologize that you’ll have to wait an extra month for the fest, but we promise the extra wait will be worth it!
We’re excited about our awesome new banner ad going up on Withoutabox.com! You’ll probably see it from time to time over there. We’re always looking for new ways to get the word out about the fest, and thought we’d try one of these out this year. What do you think?
Last year’s Best Picture, Searching for Sonny, has been cleaning up on the fest circuit since it’s screening at Festivus 2012. With a dynamite cast, fantastic direction, and incredible writing, we expected no less. Check out this article about the film’s arrival at a fest coming up in Victoria, Texas (home state of Red Productions, the crew behind the film.) It’s a great piece focusing on superstar-to-be director Andrew Disney.
Don’t let ANYTHING stop you from submitting your film TODAY! Not even rabid geese. The earlybird deadline ends tonight at midnight, so do yourself a favor and get your work in to us for a reduced submission fee.
Who’s that pretty lady with the big idea and the Kate Moss cheekbones? It’s Kate O’Neill, our new Program Manager! Kate’s been with the festival for years now, previously as our Volunteer Coordinator and member of the screening team. We’re excited that she has moved into this new and exciting role, and are confident she will do an excellent job. If you happen to see her around be sure to give her a pat on the back for being awesome. Congrats on the new spot Kate!

We are incredibly excited to announce that our 6th season will be January 23-27, 2013! But wait, that’s 5 days you might say. We will be moving from a 4 day event to a 5 day event for the first time. Just one of the many ways we are expanding this year! Stay tuned to the website for lots more updates to come.
