My Home Movie Festival was born from the idea of entertaining ourselves, our friends and our peers throughout the world. We know we are highly creative members of the film/television and media industry. With social distancing we are keeping close to our homes as much as possible so this film festival rewards us for our time and talent. My Home Movie Festival is a way to demonstrate our individual creativity. Submit a three to five minute original short film with the location being: "WHERE YOU LIVE." If you live in a house you may also use the yard, interior of your house, your driveway, your pets, family, etc. If you live in an apartment, condo or flat, you can film in your parking structure, your living space, your swimming pool, gym, sauna and/or the front or back of your building. Additionally there is a name that must be used in the film....RAMONA CORONA or QUARAN-TINA TURNER. And your choice of a Line is "It's a Jungle out there" and/or "Get Back." If you have any questions regarding location eligibility please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
