Poppy Jasper Film Festival

The Poppy Jasper Film Festival celebrates the short filmmaking craft and conveys its passion for filmmaking to the community, and has been acclaimed by MovieMaker Magazine as “one of the top 25” in the country for its focus on filmmaker experience. This expresses itself in the continual ways that festival organizers actively foster interaction, ideas, and ongoing contact between filmmakers at all levels of experience and invited screenwriters, directors, producers, and actors. These industry professionals include Academy and Emmy award winners and nominees, people whose extensive experience in the filmmaking industry brings audiences a close-up view of the passion motivating independent filmmaking. The short films (30 minutes or less), which run from horror to comedy, documentary to sci-fi, musical to romance, all have one thing in common: they entertain their audiences. Additionally, this 501(c)3 nonprofit organization awards an annual scholarship to an up-and-coming student filmmaker. Taking its name from the beautiful and rare poppy jasper gemstone found exclusively in Morgan Hill, California, the Poppy Jasper Film Festival mines the popular, fast-growing niche of short films.  The Seventh Annual Poppy Jasper Film Festival will be held November 12 -14, 2010 in Morgan Hill, California.  For further information about the Poppy Jasper Film Festival, please visit

Dances With Films

Dances With Films, now in its 14th year, champions the unflinching spirit at the very core of the independent film scene. While the vast majority of film fests rely heavily on celebrity, we have relied on the innovation, talent, creativity and sweat equity that revolutionized the entertainment industry. And that reliance continues to prove successful with alumni moving on to write and direct celebrity-studded vehicles, star in blockbuster movies and network series, produce multi-million dollar films and create hit TV shows. Oh....and we even have a few OSCAR® nominees... In a world of formulaic, homogenized film festivals Dances With Films continues to break the rules
