this is a competition. But the competition is to get into the
film festival. If you get in you have ALREADY won the
designation as one of the TOP TEN FILMS IN AMERICA!
Out of the whole country, there can only be ten films selected
in each category. We WANT to give everyone a fair shake but we
expect the competition to get into this festival to be fierce.
For that reason we are suggesting that if you have a film that
is still only in rough cut stages to hold off and send us the
finished version next year. SLAMDANCE received over THREE
THOUSAND entries this year. Atlanta received over 1200 entries
last year and the field keeps growing. So does the amount of
film festivals for Producers and Directors to choose from. So
we are strongly suggesting that you consider getting in on
this festival in our first year as we may be a small community
but we anticipate that this will soon be one of the major
festivals in the world. Please don't forget that we also have
a foreign films category.
All participating films will be listed
on this site. We have chosen to be a partner with Without A
Box. All festival rules and specifics are listed on Without a
box. Producers and Directors may go to
www.withoutabox.com to begin the application
you in Virginia!
