The South Carolina Underground Film Festival celebrates all genres of independent film in one festival. Taking place in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, SCUFF is truly an international film festival as we are seeking films from all over the globe. The SCUFF will be two packed days of indie films where fans and filmmakers can meet and mingle and celebrate obscure and independent film.

Besides promoting and showcasing the best in truly independent cinema from all around the globe, the SCUFF also promotes local filmmaking in SC. We will shine a special spotlight on SC produced films and filmmakers. Filmmakers will have an opportunity to have their works screened for a captive audience while competing for awards in many categories.

From the novice to the professional, from the student to the experimental filmmaker, SCUFF is seeking all type of films that may not be able to find an audience in more mainstream film festivals.

Drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, action, animation, music videos, fake trailers, puppet shows, claymation, documentary, LGBT, and so on. If you can create it, we want to see it. The more obscure the better!

Do you have to ask yourself if your film is too much for our festival? If so then we definitely want to see it! Does your film push social boundaries? Would Sundance or any mainstream festival laugh at you thinking you had a chance to get into their festival? Then we want your movie!

Q&A’s will follow screening with visiting filmmakers and actors. The festival will end on the second night with a big awards ceremony as we give out the SCUFF awards! Follow us on Facebook and we continue to make announcements until the festival arrives! Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you made!

The SCUFF wants to promote and nurture independent films and filmmakers. We want to expose to the world a whole new segment of cinema that they would never see anywhere else. Because of this our film festival is FREE to the public! We hope this will bring out lots of people to all the screenings and create a fun and festive environment for not only the attendees but also visiting filmmakers.

Awards & Prizes

SCUFFY Awards will be given out in many categories. Our new SCUFFY awards were designed and sculpted by special effects artist Tony Rosen who is most famous for creating the Annabelle doll used in the films "The Conjuring" and "Annabelle". We also give our winners our famous miners helmets too! Official Sponsor Final Draft scriptwriting software will present software to the winners of the best unproduced screenplay categories.

I Will Tell is an 11 night International Film Festival established to encourage independent filmmakers who shine a light on the hidden and forgotten stories of the Black community and other Under-Represented people groups around the world.

We run form 30 August to 9 September 2017 in London.

Our mission is to host, encourage and support the best of the world’s established and emerging filmmaking talent creating story-telling masterpieces. They are stories that empower the people whose voices would not otherwise be heard or whose stories have been hidden in distant memories, ignored or deliberately withheld from us. They are stories that provoke awe and wonder, sometimes just by helping us to treasure the single thread of redemption that runs through even the most difficult circumstances. Each screening is followed by an inspirational post-screening discussion and debate with filmmakers, thought leaders and an engaged, culturally diverse and conscious public. We say to our festival goers You Are I Will Tell because, in the end, we are all stories.

We showcase the most innovative and exceptional films addressing issues such as war and peace, relationship, faith, family, business, government, gender issues, race, global politics, social purpose, community cohesiveness, social justice and much more as well as the intangible issues of love, joy, peace and unity.

2017 will be our 11th year and we will be using each day of the festival to celebrate a year of the festival in some way ending in a spectacular celebration of 11 years of showcasing award-winning films from over 40 countries of a variety of genres from micro animations to epic feature-length dramas followed by thought-provoking and inspirational post-screening discussions with filmmakers and subject matter experts.

The name of the festival was inspired by a young girl, called Anel, from an impoverished area in Mozambique who wanted the world to know her story and the story of so many others around the world.

Our jury has included Bart Gavigan (Filmmaker and Hollywood script doctor), Dionne Walker (award-winning Producer, The Hard Stop), Max Oginni (Animator, Mr Bean Series), Lashana Lynch (Actress, Fast Girls), Prof Robert Beckford (BBC and Channel 4), Mark Playne (award-winning Director) and other award-winning filmmakers and professionals.

The name of the festival was inspired by a young girl, called Anel, from an impoverished area in Mozambique who wanted the world to know her story and the story of so many others around the world. The festival is inspired by a Christian ethos and we welcome films and filmmakers of any faith or none who believe simply in the power of a good story.

We love stories that challenge, awe us, shake us to the core of our beings and open up our minds to other possibilities. We love stories that encourage, empower, equip us and that inspire love, mercy and generosity. And we love stories that remind us who we truly are.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 11th I Will Tell International Film Festival! This Is Your Time!

TOP 6 FACTS
1. It's a quarterly Competition & Festival.
2. ALL entries receive a scoresheet.
3. The Festival is held in an actual movie theater.
4. Films are scored by 3 judges.
5. Cast & Crew may receive individual awards.
6. All award-winning films are eligible for distribution through PeachFlicks on Roku.

Established in 2016, Southern Shorts Awards accepts films running 30 minutes or less in the following categories:
• Action/Adventure
• Animation/Puppetry
• Comedy
• Documentary
• Drama
• Fan Films
• Horror
• Mystery/Thriller
• Musicals
• Science Fiction/Fantasy
• Web Series/Webisode

MISSION STATEMENT

The goal of Southern Shorts Awards (SSA) is to recognize filmmakers whose short films demonstrate their ability to produce well crafted motion pictures.

THE SOUTHERN SHORTS AWARDS COMPETITION / FESTIVAL

Southern Shorts Awards is a seasonal competition in which each entry is judged on its’ own merits. Every film will be screened by three judges using a 10 point scale and you will receive the scores of all three judges whether you win an award or not.

At the end of each season, we screen the top three films of each genre scoring 75 or higher. These are one-day festivals held at the Aurora Cineplex in Roswell, Georgia.

Films are shown in genre blocks with a Q&A at the end of each film (whose filmmakers attend) and the evening ends with a spectacular Awards Presentation.

SCORING

Your composite score will show where you excelled, as well as the areas in which you could do better. This is vitally important information because how can you improve if you don't know what needs improving? SSA offers a level playing ground for filmmakers to have their work judged by a panel of industry professionals.

Most festivals only offer two categories for short films, narrative or documentary. SSA has 11 categories, so your film can be judged within its' specific genre.

Southern Shorts Awards may also serve as a first-entry test for filmmakers who intend to enter their film into multiple festivals. Receiving an award from SSA does not guarantee that a another festival will accept your entry, but those films which do not receive any award from us may be less likely to find success in the festival circuit.

The 23rd Annual Brainwash Drive-in, Bike-in, Walk-in Movie Festival, will be held July 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th, 2017 at Nimby, 8410 Amelia Street, Oakland, CA, USA. Est. 1995.

The New York Times says the Brainwash Movie Festival “pirates a piece of that old Hollywood magic and challenges conventions on the role of public space in the process.”

Brainwash organizers say, “We show movies in a parking lot in Oakland.”

The movies shown at the Brainwash Movie Festival are a great mix of original humor, experimental art movies, innovative animation, and short live-action stories with high production values. The moviemakers are unique and skillful storytellers, and the movies themselves pack a real punch into anywhere from 5 to 18 minutes. In the past, we have also featured great features: John Law & Flecher Fleudujon’s “Head Trip” and an all-Jesus show featuring “Trailer Park Jesus”. Both two great, rare features! Not to mention our usual abundance of innovative, unique and vital shorts!

What’s a Drive-in Bike-in Walk-in Movie Festival? It’s set up like a traditional drive-in with FM sound as well as two big amps. Arrive however you choose: drive, bike, or walk in, perhaps with your favorite chair or blanket.

Brainwash Movies has been showing great underground mostly short movies since 1995. We’ve been written up in Variety, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle Pink Section, East Bay Express, SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, and in AAA’s Via magazine, among many others. We’ve toured the US Southwest and played at CBGB’s in New York.

We are also developing a broadcast pilot that includes footage filmed live at the festival. Stay tuned for a regular show of our short movies, held together with commentary, banter, and an as-yet confidential plot that may once and for all resolve the question: “Who is Shelby Toland?”. Or maybe not!

WHAT YOU GET:

Free Admission to the Festival Event.

We have a broadcast series in the works and will use your movie, with your permission, if yours is selected.

Prizes! We would like to welcome our returning sponsor Jungle Software to The Brainwash Movie Festival. We will be presenting Jungle software to our TOP 3 AWARD WINNERS this year, to help with future movie productions!

The San Francisco Black Film Festival! June 15th-18th, 2017 – See you there!

The San Francisco Black Film Festival will be taking place at Sundance Kabuki Theater (Post St.), The African American Art & Culture Complex (Fulton St), Second Act (Haight St.) and The Variety Premier House (Market St.) There will be special events and a Filmmaker’s Lounge for media types to socialize and network. Forums discussing the state of Independent Film and how you can cash in within the new environment as Online Streaming fights for good content. There will be a music aspect as well as we discuss “Scores” and show music documentaries supplemented by live shows with Q&A’s. This is the place how to find out how to get that project done within your budget parameters and find out how DIY are getting the job done. This festival is for everyone and everyone is invited! Come share the culture that helped shape San Francisco and enjoy great films that are of entertainment and importance to all.

SAN FRANCISCO BLACK FILM FESTIVAL’s MISSION is to celebrate African American cinema and the African cultural Diaspora and to showcase a diverse collection of films – from emerging and established filmmakers. This is accomplished by presenting Black films, which reinforce positive images and dispel negative stereotypes, and providing film artists from the bay area in particular and around the world in general, a forum for their work to be viewed and discussed. SFBFF believes film can lead to a better understanding of and communication between, peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles, while simultaneously serving as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.

An early proponent of the global perspective, the festival has always been ahead of its time. Long before popular culture paid lip service to ‘going global’, we were walking the walk, presenting global motifs and topics from filmmakers around the world.

THE SAN FRANCISCO BLACK FILM FESTIVAL was founded with the artistic vision to provide a platform for Black filmmakers, screenwriters, and actors to present their art. As a competitive film festival, SFBFF identifies filmmakers, screenwriters, and actors that are emerging as talents and established artists who are contributing to the cinematic legacy of African Americans. SFBFF conscientiously expands the notions of “Black film-making” to a global perspective. Hence, film submissions are accepted worldwide from filmmakers and screenwriters who are of African descent and others, or feature actors representing the African Diaspora..

This is a weekly screening series focused on independent films that go overlooked by film festivals. While we are in the interest of showing well-made films regardless of the context, and all will be seriously considered, special consideration will be given to films that utilize low budget resources and exhibit qualities of the auteur theory such as personal subject matters or unique aesthetics and techniques.

The aim is to promote a film culture of artists who want to share their work and hone their craft, but don’t necessarily subscribe to the lengthy and exclusionary film festival submission process.

A unique aspect of this series is your submissions will be reviewed quickly and, if accepted, exhibited the following month at the Secret Rose Theater in North Hollywood, CA.

The screenings will be similar to premieres with a reception preceding the films, followed be a presentation and analysis given by Anthony, the owner of Cineartistry. The films will then be shown, followed by an after party at one of the many establishments in the area, time permitting.

There are two categories: Features and Shorts. Each Tuesday, a chosen short will be screened, followed by a chosen feature.

Awards & Prizes

All chosen films will be screened on a certain Tuesday the following month at the Secret Rose theater in North Hollywood, CA.

There will be a presentation and analysis given before the film by Anthony, the owner, head writer, and curator of CineArtistry.

An InkTip prize package for 3 chosen exceptional films.

There will be additional prizes to be named later per sponsorship approval.

CICFF is a monthly live screening film festival, opened in November 2016, with a yearly live screening mega event in the City of Joy - Kolkata, scheduled for October 2017.

Mission: The sole purpose of Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (CICFF) is to develop a film culture that inspires and brings together cross-cultural innovations that enrich people’s lives with entertainment: and services that inform, educate and entertain.

The event's goals are to introduce more people to art-house cinema. We would like to see films made primarily for aesthetic and philosophical reasons. We believe that a story driven by a genuine expression can stimulate new thoughts that have the power to promote the fundamental principles of humanism; expand creative frontiers; stimulate new levels of compassion, and even lead to social change. The Festival is an organization dedicated to the discovery and development of new Artists and Audiences. The Festival seeks to support and inspire independent film and theatre artists from all over the world, and to introduce audiences to their new work. We also welcome established Art-house filmmakers, who have already produced a major contribution to the art of filmmaking.

Each month more than 20 films from the different categories will be officially selected and out of them at least one per category will be awarded. The most representative are monthly screened in Calcutta and have an academic and detailed review published at our International film magazine CULT CRITIC. In addition, the best of each month's category will compete with all the others at the end of the year and the best of the best in each category will receive the prestigious GOLDEN FOX AWARD.

The annual event will be a glamorous red carpet premiere with press conferences and gala parties at Kolkata in the presence of international movie celebrities. The participants will have excellent opportunities to exchange their ideas, ideologies and cultural innuendoes. The winners will have a chance to meet with the audience and participate in a Q and A after the screening.

CICFF is a division of Human Lab Corporation, a leading International film production and distribution company. At CICFF, we will be providing incentives for winning films, and present promotional strategies for the winning films and their directors.

First we will conduct an Interview with the director which will be posted in our HLC portal, plus a published review by one of our esteemed writers from CULT CRITIC magazine. But that's not all: CICFF will take you global with international distribution opportunities for your films.

CICFF is a festival celebrating the arts, liberation and independence. We promote liberated platforms for all independent filmmakers throughout the World. And, irrespective of their subject matter, we will assure an international platform for them all.

In closing, CICFF guarantees outstanding selections each month, as the festival will be held on a monthly-basis. Hence we are going to create a culture that leads to “directors in the making” every month. Yes! That’s the perfect idiom for the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival.

Awards & Prizes
All Winners receive CICFF Certificate.

Each month, the most representatives of monthly award winners are screened in Kolkata.

Each year we select ONE Best of the Best (from all categories) and the prize is the HLC’s prestigious GOLDEN FOX award+ plus Live Screening in the theatre at Kolkata.

Come be a part of the "premier festival office the mythical 51st State of Jefferson!" We love our filmmakers and screenwriters, and have an amazing audience. Win a belt buckle and have one hell of a good time.

"A outlaw-ish alternative to the standard film festival!"
- Tzang Merwyn Tong (writer-director, FAERYVILLE)

"One of the best festivals I've been to!" Marlyn Mason (Actor, DEAR FUTURE SELF)

"Pioneer quaintness and rugged individualism."
- Claudia Ballard (editor, OLD?!)

"Jefferson State Flixx Fest is a truly unique and fulfilling experience. I left feeling inspired and wanting to come back next year!"
- Meagan Daine (screenwriter, WEST OF REDEMPTION)

Nestled in the scenic and historic Scott Valley among the majesty of the Marble Mountains, the Jefferson State FLIXX FEST proudly claims to be the premier film festival in the "mythical" 51st State of Jefferson, located on the border in far northern California. In true Jeffersonian spirit we have our own way of doing things. We screen at several non-traditional venues (outdoor tents, a massive old tire shop, etc.) and are committed to showcasing films and screenplays that especially capture some of the Jefferson State's iconic values: landscape, rebellion, beauty, irreverence, the outdoors, vision and independence, in whatever form that takes. We also have a KIDS FLIXX section of the festival that encourages independent voices in a kid-friendly approach.

Last year went far beyond expectations, with sixty films including shorts, the attendance of several filmmakers, a live actor-read table read of the winning screenplay, and close to 2000 Flixxfesters. This year will see some new changes that promise an even better event and look forward to another amazing and sold-out weekend in September. Awards will be presented after the final screening on Saturday at a truly unique Awards dinner.
