The GLCFF presents this amazing event for Short filmmakers. Hope Festival is our annual festival featuring Short Films and Music Videos. We rate the top productions online in the Winter. The finalists will be included in our Summer event in Buffalo, NY. for the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival.

Our first year we will award the top projects in 3 categories and for the top film $100.
Top Film $100
Top Music Video
Top Short Narrative
Top Short Documentary

Very Important: No nudity, vulgarity, or themes not suitable to younger audiences will be considered as an official selection. We will select the top 5 films in each category as nominees and award the top films $100 in each category. All projects will be reviewed for content relating to Christian Values. Top projects will be judged in 10 areas, such as creativity, production value, sound, etc. Projects should be faith-based, family friendly, and inspirational. The ultimate goal is to have your projects reach out to people that may have never heard of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also want to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ with your projects.

This is our first year creating this online event, for your benefit. We want to give top filmmakers an outlet and accolades to add to their projects. Marketing your films will be easier with a good track record. Your business can also grow with recognition of your talent.

We look forward to being a part of your history.
