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.

The Wavecrest Award was unveiled at the inaugural Clearwater Film Festival.  Created to honor the actor / writer / director, what the festival dubs a “triple threat filmmaker”.  Wavecrests were awarded in thirteen categories.  In form to follow the Academy Awards they followed format presenting the Best Supporting to Railed Up and Wrecked  (Canada) Actor John Webb with the very first Wavecrest.  The accolades to follow included Kate Layden, Best Supporting Actress for Innocent Crimes (United Kingdom), Best Animated Film Thembi’s Diary (USA), Best Documentary The Story Of Human Rights (USA), Best Screenplay Twenty Ten (Australia), Best Musical Score/Soundtrack Sneakers & Soul (USA), Best Short Film Lastrain (Spain), which also took home Best International Film and Best Director (Tony Lopez & David Sanz).

Twenty-nine films held nominations which were kept in secrecy until moments before the award ceremony.  Filmmakers Byron Kaye and Neil Webb were in attendance to accept their awards.

A complete list of nominees and more information about the Wavecrest, designed specifically for The Clearwater Film Festival by San Jose CA sculptor Jeff Owen is available on the festival website.

The Clearwater Film Festival is focused on prosperity for filmmakers and becoming the next important rung on the ladder of filmmaking success.
