Phenom Film Fest

The Phenom Film Fest is being held in the Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana area. No stranger to filmmaking, the region has experienced a major boom in recent years, with numerous studios calling the region home. Since Louisiana offers one of the top tax incentive programs for filmmaking nationwide, it's no wonder it's been referred to as "Hollywood South."

While major film studios have used the locale to serve as the backdrop for numerous cities and countries worldwide, the Phenom Film Fest serves to draw interest, support and attention to independent filmmaking locally and internationally. The festival will show roughly 40-60 features and shorts while showcasing fun, interactive and innovative talk panels.

Family Fiction Film Project

FFFilm Project (Family Fiction Film Project) is a cycle of video and film, which explores several possibilities around the topic of family/familiar: documentary or fiction movies about the intimate, the personal or private, family movies, home movies, self-portrait / about identities, family as a landscape, alternative families, etc. In the era of the democratization of the use of image the objects produced are increasingly on the intimacy and in the precariousness of the production resources. There is a new way to make films and to tell stories. Public and private or global and local, stands in a constant transformation in its inter-connection at the same they have a tremendous impact on the way of producing, creating and living. We believe that at this moment, this kind of cycle is full of sense; it will be a moment for sharing ways of doing and perspectives which concerns are with fragility, intimacy and precarity. This cycle is open both to amateur and professional videos.

Cine Migratorio

Cine Migratorio is a migration-themed film festival that will take place May 10-13, 2012 in Santander, Spain. The Festival aims to present a program of artistically accomplished, thematically challenging and stimulating films about migration to students, migrants, Santander residents, and anyone who wishes to join us for this weekend-long event. We hope these films will incite reflection and discussion about migration, but also about the power of film to capture mobility in a modern age. We welcome all film genres (feature, short, documentary, experimental, animation) and do not endorse any one political stance on migration issues. Cine Migratorio endeavors to screen films that explore a wide range of migration-related themes and issues, from the way in which economic and social forces that drive migration cross as many borders as migrants themselves, to personal migration stories, to films less directly concerned with migration but still resonant with its effects and contexts. In addition to screenings, Cine Migratorio will feature lectures, workshops, live music, and other events. Leading up to the festival, Cine Migratorio will host an array of programs in local high schools and local centers. Cine Migratorio will take place May 10-13th in Santander, Spain, in the Paraninfo at the Las Llamas campus of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP).

All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival

Whether it is a dramatic or comedic piece, we want screenwriters and filmmakers to share their great stories in regards to the world of sports. We felt that creating this festival would give the many sports fanatics out there an outlet for their love of competition. We ask you, the filmmaker, to only submit films that the plot centers around the competition or competitor. We will respectfully decline films that just have a competition scene in them that isn't pivotal to the story or character.

Some people have asked us to define "sports." Well, we want to include any subject matter that deals with mental and physical competition for the sake of winning a prize (and not killing anyone along the way to do it). So we're ready to watch and read any stories from auto racing to badminton and spelling bees to chess.

The festival this year will be held at the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood, California on November 9-11, 2012. We plan to have a reception on either Friday or the Thursday prior to the festival's opening.

Our jury and judges are well respected people in the film and sporting industry.  Having your film or screenplay in the festival may open doors that may not be available to you.  We can't promise sudden fame and fortune but we'll do our best to get you noticed.

This is the 4th year of the festival.
