Mark Zuckerberg was not wrong when he predicted in his notable 2016 keynote at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress that we were heading into a future where the majority of content to be consumed will be VIDEO. In an excruciatingly saturated content climate merged with monetary pressures, it can be the toughest ordain for an independent filmmaker to gain recognition for his vision and craft out in the festival circuit.

We look forward to your submissions, we are rooting for you!
