The 2nd annual Neu World Studios International Film Festival! Located in Cedar City Utah, Neu World Studios along with Historic Cedar Theater will host film submissions from around the world with categories and awards in: first time filmmakers, Cult Classic, local filmmakers, best short, best feature, comedy, drama, action, experimental, and more!!

Utah is known for great Shakespeare Festival, movies, filmmakers, locations, sites, and of course, Sundance, and many others. Now we want to put southern Utah on the map for great film making and makers around the world!

As the first year, we are going to start strong by only taking the top notch film submissions and making the prizes and awards prestigious and something to build on for years to come.

This is no ordinary film festival, this is one that will help bring in a 'new world' by helping filmmakers around the world hone their craft, and give it a proper venue it can show the world.
*** PLEASE do not email requests for free entries/film waivers, FOR ANY REASON. It is very disrespectful to the film making process and to the other film makers that put in the hard work and pay entry fees. If you cannot pay entry fees, please move on and look for festivals that are free. Thank you for respecting the Festival Process***

    Got selected, but then there was no festival. Feel like it was kind of a waste of entry fee. Oh, well, thanks for SELECTING my film, anyway.

    Sorry you didn't seem to read or get the emails on our festival situation. We did indeed have a film festival, only the format changed to an on line event, which went very well with people all over the world responding. We had to change the event last minute because of some very greedy vendors, this of course was stated in your emails. Plus you got a free submission for next year. So yes you were selected, yes you got laurels, yes we had an international film festival, which more people were able to see than scheduled. so sorry you had a problem with all of that. Good luck with all your future film making. Kipp Howard

    Sorry you feel that way, obviously you aren't understanding of the situation and/or read the messages, you're the only one that feels this way, prob bc you didn't win. There ARE awards for winners. And if you want to know, i made -$70.00 on this festival. Thanks for your feedback and good luck in your future filmmaking!-KIpp
