*The Chico Independent Film Festival is on Season 8! Submissions Open on December 21st!!! As we are just now finishing all of last season and costs, please send and share to help this event be free on Opening Day. We have made that decision based off of what we want to show on Opening Day, Camp Fire Films from Locals Only! In order to do this, we will have to make sure that we start now. It takes a dedicated team and resources to make this happen. We are talking to venues now as our old home was sold. Season 8 will be "Computers in Film Series" --- our festival is growing rapidly and will encompass Local to Global VR, Animation, Computer Only Generated Footage, 3D, etc this season to inspire our youth to go with the future! All Fire Victims will be WAIVED Submissions fees. We love you NorCal, show the world what has happened and take the time to share this and talk about how INDEPENDENT FILM can change lives and seed projects of all kinds of ART!:)
