**** This is a short film festival, only for films 20 minutes or less in length!! We will NOT be screening any films longer then 20 minutes in length!!!!****
Romance films tell love stories that focus on passion, emotion, and affectionate involvement of the main characters and a journey of true, strong and pure romantic love leading either to fantastic sexual and emotional fulfillment and happiness or a quite life of sacrifice and love unfulfilled.
Romantic films explore love at first sight, young with older love, unrequited romantic love, obsessive love, sentimental love, spiritual love, forbidden love/romance, platonic love, sexual and passionate love, sacrificial love, explosive and destructive love, and tragic love. Romantic films serve as great escapes and fantasies for viewers.
