Our team has been following closely the developments with the Coronavirus outbreak and in light of these developments, we have made the decision to POSTPONE OUR FESTIVAL AT THIS TIME. THE FESTIVAL WILL NOT BE HELD MAY 21-23, 2020. A LATER DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED. Our festival is attended each year by filmmakers who travel from all over the United States and some internationally to fellowship, network with each other and share with our audiences. Our team also travels via air to execute the festival and this year we will be hosting the festival at a hotel which also exposes us all to an even wider cohort of international travelers. We continue to accept and screen submissions with a view to staging the event in the second half of this year.

    It was the first time that we attended this film festival this year. It really impressed us a lot. We would like to thank Judith and her lovely team as they encouraged the filmmakers to support each other and made this festival like a warm family. Thanks for the award to our film “The One Who Holds Sovereignty Over Everything”. And we will be back next year!

    Although I could not attend the event in person, I was very pleased with the festival's supportive communication and inspirational attitude of service to the filmmakers and the local community. Very honored to have my short film "Saved - Escape from Kim´s regime" screened and win the "Eyes Wide Open"-award. Hope to be able to attend the festival in the future!
