The Lifetree Film Fest is a cinematic celebration focusing on bringing awareness to local, national and international issues by portraying people or organizations making a positive difference. The 6th annual Lifetree Film Fest will take place in Loveland, Colorado, April 21-23, 2016 at the historic Rialto Theater.
The Lifetree Film Fest promotes not only great cause-related films, but also the causes themselves. Top cash prize money goes to the cause represented in the winning film.
The Lifetree Film Fest also provides distribution opportunities for filmmakers through its distribution arm—Lifetree Café. Lifetree Café is an international network of "conversation cafés" where people gather each week to watch compelling stories shared on film, and discuss thought-provoking topics.
Films submitted to the Lifetree Film Fest are considered for use in a Lifetree Café experience. This provides the filmmaker a unique opportunity for international awareness as well as distribution into hundreds of Lifetree Café locations.
