It is with a combination of regret over present circumstances, aligned with hope for the future, that we are announcing the cancellation of the 2021 Finger Mullet Film Festival. As you know, a primary goal of the festival has been the direct cultivation of the historically overlooked creative voices in our community. Due to the pandemic we simply have not been able to perform the outreach work with young creatives we began in the spring of 2020. To all the artist who submitted we thank you for the incredible contributions and ask that you be on the lookout for a new announcement of Finger Mullet 2022. We are not giving up! We have decided the only way to fully realize our vision is to regroup, and establish a blueprint for local, national and international success next summer.
