The St Cloud Film Fest promotes film and filmmakers by creating opportunities for education, production, and appreciation during an annual festival and through year-long outreach.
2020 marks the 10th year of the St Cloud Film Fest!
The St Cloud Film Fest takes place over eight days in a historic theatre on the banks of the Mississippi River. The downtown art scene is a hub for the surrounding artistic community. Many local visual artists have exhibitions on display along St. Germain Street and 5th Avenue.
We are a non-profit organization devoted to promoting forward-thinking independent film and committed to giving students an opportunity to create their own projects. We hold stop-motion workshops for elementary students and give high-school and college students a chance to make a film as part of a weekend contest.
The crowds are passionate and intelligent about cinema. We'd love the chance to show your film to a new audience. From live action to animation, documentary to experimental all film makers have a place and a voice at this film festival.
Our judges award the following - Grand Jury Prize, Jury Prize, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Avant-Garde, Best Short-Short (under 5 minutes), Audience Favorite, and Most Promising Young Artist (for K-12 students).
You must have all necessary rights for this film, and that exhibition of your film will not breach or infringe upon any rights including but not limited to music, images, and content. You also agree to grant the St Cloud Film Fest the right to use any portion from the film at the festival or online for promotional and other non-commercial uses.
