Best Trailers for June 2020

The Clearwater Film and Music Festival


 

The Clearwater Film Festival is evolving.

In 2010 we came out of the gate with a glowing presence, hosting 75 films, a dozen educational film panels, six beautiful parties and the initiation of The Wavecrest Award.

This year we are poised to do it again, bringing a stronger live music element with a multitude of stages at participating establishments on Clearwater Beach.  In addition to keeping our eyes open for great films, this summer we have our ears to the ground to locate the brightest musical talents seeking a spotlight.  At festival time we will present a ripe harvest with a bounty of entertainment with something for everyone.

Be part of it.

Opportunities are here for everyone, whether you are here to be one of our many outstanding artists, partake of the entertainment, or join us as a vendor.  We want you involved.

 

The Clearwater Film & Music Festival is a platform built to showcase seasoned filmmakers and emerging artists who demonstrate the synergy of the actor, writer and director. When great talents work harmoniously the results may be beautiful, questionable or even shocking. When the talents of the actor, writer and director belong to the same person, the triple-threat filmmaker, those results are often extraordinary. It is here that we applaud those efforts. Quality film submissions of any length are welcome from all genres worldwide.
You need not be a “triple-threat filmmaker” to participate, just show us what great teamwork can do, and bring your vision.
