Rejoice film enthusiasts and film makers in the making. Though 2018 has almost come and gone (the “ber” months are upon us), there are still a few months left in the year. And you guys won’t have to worry about running out of film festivals to go to and participate in.
There are still a good number of film festivals out there for you this year. Let’s take a look at a few of them, shall we?
The Big Apple Film Festival
As the name suggests, the Big Apple Film Festival takes place in New York City. Many magazines and television shows have consistently ranked this film festival as one of the top ones.
It has been named as one of the best ones that are worth the fee to pay for, one of the coolest film festivals, and is even an event that people should go to when they are in the big apple.
In this film festival, the very best films are shown with the organization committed to showcasing the innovations and progress that filmmakers around the world have done.
This film festival partners with InkTip. InkTip is a website that plays a big role in the film industry. The gist of it is that writers can write in their website. This generates a lot of exposure for the writers. From there, producers can easily locate a script through here. The website will also allow agents and managers an easier time when finding clients.
Winners in the Big Apple Film Festival will be allowed to promote themselves and their films. They will be given an opportunity to network through InkTip.
Apart from that, the winner of the short screenplay category will have their film produced and premiered in the festival. Other categories include best feature film, best animation, best student film, and many more.
The festival is slated to happen on November 1 to 3.
American Documentary Film Festival
This film festival is a bit different. As the name suggests, the American Documentary Film Festival is all about documentaries. This festival is one of the biggest in America. It takes place in Palm Springs, quite near Hollywood.
Despite it being a documentary film festival, it does have several categories that can be watched and joined. There is a proper documentary category, a short documentary category, and the festival even presents documentaries in animation.
In addition to the film festival, there is also something called the American Documentary Film Fund. In this competition, filmmakers who win will receive as much as $50,000 in prize money so that they can finish their magnum opuses.
These are only a few film festivals still left this year. If you’d like to look at others, check out the Female Eye Film Festival and the Taos Shortz Film Fest.
