THE PLEBEIAN FILM FESTIVAL IS LOCATED IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA. IT WILL BE HELD NOVEMBER 3-5, 2017.
TARKOVSKY SAID THAT FILM WAS THE SCULPTING OF TIME. WE HOPE TO LEARN HOW YOU, THE FILMMAKER AND OUR TEMPORAL GUIDE, SCULPT YOUR THOUGHTS AND DISTILL YOUR EXPRESSION IN THE FORM OF THE CINEMATIC ART THAT YOU SHARE WITH US. IT WILL BE AN HONOUR TO WATCH YOUR FILM AND BE ALLOWED INTO THE WORLD THAT YOU HAVE CREATED.
WE DON'T CARE HOW EXPENSIVE YOUR EQUIPMENT IS, WE DON'T CARE IF ALL YOU HAVE IS A CELLPHONE, WE DON'T CARE IF YOU AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH FILM VERNACULAR, INDUSTRY JARGON OR FILM THEORY. WE JUST CARE ABOUT BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART, BE THEY ROUGH AND MESSY OR REFINED AND ELEGANT.
WE WILL GIVE OUT AWARDS THAT WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY SMALL TROPHIES, SELECTED BY OUR JURORS, ALONG WITH ONE AUDIENCE AWARD.
¡VIVA EL ARTE DEL CINE!
