Woodbury Film Festival celebrates bold visions and powerful voices. Power doesn't always arrive through unflinching determination with loud exclamations. Sometimes it sneaks up on you through subtle but vibrant nuance meticulously woven into the fabric of a narrative-- hidden but visible, silent but bright. This is our thirst and our passion. Discovering, cultivating, and sharing bold, entertaining, and transformative film and media to a thirsty, intelligent audience. Our audience wants to be challenged.

We'll open the festival with a bang with an opening gala followed by two days of screenings, panels, and workshops. We'll wrap things up with an awards dinner and mingle.

An eager and receptive audience may be all that you're after, but Woodbury would like to offer you more.

We'll award In-Kind and/or Cash prizes to the winners in each of the categories. Everyone who's film screens at the festival will receive items of value.

Category winners receive are awarded a custom engraved trophy.

While Woodbury doesn't require filmmakers attend the festival, we strongly encourage it. We offer a personalized experience for filmmakers who come to represent their films and give them opportunity to mingle with their audiences.

Q&A sessions will be conducted where every filmmaker can participate. We also will offer workshops and other events that focus on the filmmaker and their audiences.

Films need to have been completed no more than three years prior to submission.

    Woodbury film festival is the # 1 festival I have experienced in the year I have been submitting films via Film Freeway. Woodbury Film Festival has created an impressive community of people to organize, run and volunteer for this festival. Indeed all the ratings are 5 star!

    We had a blast at the Woodbury Film Festival. The volunteers and staff were very polite and helpful and the space was intimate and clean. The sound system was pretty incredible as well as the projector/screen. Things ran smoothly and promptly. They were very responsive to our questions throughout the submission and selection process.

    Overall it was a pleasure to submit and to attend!
