This film series, at Canton Ohio's newest cinema The Cut, is a celebration of the works of every passionate film maker who has ever felt small or unimportant. Canton, Ohio is the 8th largest city in Ohio but spawned a United States President and the NFL organization, and now hosts the Hall of Fame festival every year. Everyone deserves a chance in the spotlight, so show us what you've got.

The Cut Cinema is a 60 seat underground theater. Literally under the ground level. We are beneath and share an entrance with the art gallery upstairs.

Official Selection laurels will be distributed to films that are shown. All films shown will be cataloged and linked on our website.

You must have the right to submit your film and for it to be viewed by the public. We also reserve the right to use images from your film to promote the screening of your film if it is selected for showing. Films that have previously been selected are ineligible. Films must be English Language, Subtitled in English, or be Silent.
