A special evening of films made exclusively by East Tennessee Filmmakers.
If you've ever wanted to see your film on the big screen at the Tennessee Theatre--this may be your chance! We are accepting submissions in three categories: Student, Emerging Filmmaker, and Professional. Films can be any genre and any length up to 10 minutes long. The best 8 films will be chosen in each category. Submissions fees are just $20.
Here's a perfect chance to brush off that script you never finished, or polish up a Director's Cut from a short film you've already completed. Submissions will be open from October 28 - November 25, 2015.
This gala evening will be hosted by Kelly Shipe with proceeds from the event benefiting the Knoxville Horror Film Fest and the Scruffy City Film & Music Festival.
Awards will be given for Audience Choice, Best Comedy, Best Horror Film, Best Narrative, Best Documentary, Best Animated Film, Best Documentary, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Cinematographer, Best Music, Best Editing, and Best Music Video.
Three cash prizes will be awarded, $500 for the Best Student Film, $300 for the Best Film from an Emerging Filmmaker and $200 from the Best Film made by a Professional Filmmaker. Special thanks to the Knoxville Film Office for providing these awards.
