Motion For Pictures is a monthly screening series designed entertain and inspire the local film community as well as the general public by curating a lineup of the best independent cinema from around the world.

Screenings take place on the first Wednesday of every month at the state-of-the-art Cary Theater on downtown Cary, North Carolina and consist of one 60-90 minute block featuring a mix of different styles of film.

We accept films from every genre, including- but not limited to- drama, horror, comedy, sci-fi, documentary, music video, experimental, student film, etc. The only requirement is that it be GREAT!

Each film screened will receive exclusive "Official Selection" laurels.

At each screening the audience will vote on their favorite film of the night. The winner will receive exclusive "Audience Choice" laurels.

Films must be submitted through our FilmFreeway page and conform to all rules and guidelines set out by FilmFreeway. Since the series is ongoing, you only need to submit your film once and it will remain in consideration for future screenings. Once a submission fee has been paid it will not be refunded.

The lineup for each screening will be publicly announced two weeks prior to the show. Notifications will be sent out to entrants one month prior to the screening.

A film may be withdrawn from consideration at any time for any reason until it has been selected for screening. No refunds will be given for withdrawals. Once a film has been selected for screening and the entrant notified of the selection, the film may not be withdrawn for any reason.

By submitting, the entrant agrees that all content in the film is their original work and/or they have obtained all necessary rights and permissions to screen the project as well as any copyrighted, trademarked, or proprietary material contained within. Entrants may be asked to show proof that they have permission to elements of the work that fall into question. Any work found to violate copyright laws will be immediately disqualified without refund.
