When asked what makes this festival different to others? As film makers ourselves, we know the hard work, sleepless nights, and passion that goes into a production - and once you've finished, the process of entering it throughout the film festival circuit.
We found lots of rules and limits with most, such as certain length requirements, specific genres, production dates within time frames, finalists must attend the event... and so forth.
Not that there is anything wrong with rules - they are what makes each festival their own!
However, this led us to create the Reel Time International Online Film Festival - a festival which has a range of categories to suit every productions, genre and length, available to all films worldwide, including film trailers and music videos.
We are not even specifically looking for films in high production quality, in fact, we love indie films with either a low or no budget! We are looking for films that are creative, entertaining, and made or written with passion!
We have an Online Opening Night - where we show a portion of the Finalists Projects (No longer than 45 seconds / full Trailers) before announcing the winners! (We do not show full films, obviously due to copywriters, but show enough for the world wide audience to get a sneak peek of entrants films) In addition to our opening night, we have links to film makers on our Finalists Section in our Website! This gives a chance for Film Makers to network their project more.
