Filmstock ensures that the audience fully enjoys the terrific lineup of quality entertainment by some of the freshest and best minds in the business, and simultaneously ensures each film gets the audience's full attention.
Each Official Selection is reviewed by notable figures in the industry and are up for votes by the audience!
With over eight awards handed out at each of the four Filmstock Film Festival events throughout the year, there are few places with this big of an opportunity for your work to be seen and celebrated by industry members and audiences alike.
