Pushing the envelope is a big deal in the film industry. You
can’t just tell the same old stories to get your name out
there. Someway, somehow, you must innovate and tell a
new story, or tell the same story in a completely different
way. If that sounds like you, then there’s the perfect film festival to
show off your work.
The New Media Film Festival® in its 13th year, is looking to
get your name out there as the innovator you are. No matter if
you’re telling your story through more traditional mediums like
shorts, features, documentaries, or if you’re experimenting with
XR, AI, or other mediums, there’s room for you at the festival. This
year, New Media Film Festival® is proud to announce a brand-
new category, Faith & Family. All stories with faith and/or family
values considered. The festival thanks Technologies for Worship
Magazine for their support in making this possible.
New Media Film Festival® is the film
festival you’ll want to enter.
With judges from Marvel, PBS, BBC, HBO, the Television
Academy, Grammys, Rolling Stone and more, your innovation
will not go unnoticed. No matter what genre you have, there’s 26
categories for you to enter in.
Are you mixing up your camera work with more drone-focused
shots? There’s a category for that. Did you create an experience
through a mobile application? There are two categories for that.
Do you have just a regular feature film? Don’t worry, there’s still a
category for that too.
No matter what kind of medium you used to tell your story, you
have a spot at the New Media Film Festival®. Podcasts, animation,
360 VR, music videos, TV pilots, and more will await you to enjoy.
Even if you’re not creating something with a different medium,
you’ll be able to experience these projects when you attend.
PLENTY OF NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
With such unique projects being featured during the New
Media Film Festival®, you’ll want to connect with people at the
festival to find your next collaborator. Several of the festivals’
biggest successes came from people networking during the festival.
With Q&As, soirees, art exhibitions, a red carpet, tables with
marketing advice, and the awards ceremony, it’s easy to find a time
to talk to your future muse. Plus, there’s even certain events the
festival hosts designed with networking in mind to help you talk
with the people you need.
AWARDS FOR ALL CATEGORIES
Like most festivals, there’s a grand prize award for the project
that truly encompasses the values of the New Media Film Festival®.
If you take home the top prize, you’re looking at a distribution deal
for your project, studio time, casting services, post-production
services, and production consultation for your next one, as well as
meetings with Marvel and HBO.
Top in your category isn’t getting short-changed though. You’ll
also get an opportunity for a distribution deal, as well as media
and PR exposure for your project. If you take home top three in
the script category, you’ll walk away $1,000 richer thanks to a
combination of writing services, all nominees are in consideration
for $45,000 in awards. T
The Church (in all denominations!) is all
about telling the Greatest Story Ever Told.
Match made in heaven? You bet!
