The selection committee views each and every one of the films submitted. Various levels of selection are used to determine the final films to be screened for the preliminary judges. Unfortunately, due to the number of entries we receive, we cannot communicate with every filmmaker as to the status of their film. If your film is selected, we will contact you using the information provided on the official entry form.

    I’m a long time (50 years) filmmaker. ‘Been to all the ‘best’ film festivals with films in competition, both films I’ve directed and produced. This is a small festival of great quality and heart. The awards event was in a small but happening building on 44th street in Manhattan. All the other filmmakers who attended were young and full of promise. I can’t wait to see their films. This fest represents the soul of making films. I salute Dwayne Buckle for his heart and vision. Monty Diamond

    I was so honored to have two of my music videos selected. The staff's communication stood out over other festivals, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they actually mail out certificates and trophies to the winners who were not able to physically attend. In this time of COVID, that was such a great gesture! Thank you for a great experience!
