We have been able to keep our entry fees low, and present our screenings FREE by keeping our festival small, and simple. We simply set up a projector, some chairs, and watch films...”no frills, just films”.

Our mission is to acknowledge excellence in filmmaking. Our panel of five judges carefully screen each entry several times, evaluating its technical merit, script development, acting, and entertainment value. The films with the highest scores become "official entries", and are shown in our festival. Films with good audio, and strong stories have the greatest chance of being selected. We typically receive around 150 entries, and show 40-50. Filmmakers are welcome to come and introduce their film, and to participate in a Q&A afterwards. Our screening room seats 100, and tickets to all shows are free for anyone who wishes to attend...there is plenty of free parking too! If you can't come to the festival, don't worry. We can hand out publicity materials for you.
