Our Film Festival is dedicated to writers or directors 40 years of age and over to showcase work that their experience brings to cinema.

North Hollywood is minutes from many Studios; Universal, Disney, Warner Brothers and CBS. The area is a hub of all that encompasses the Entertainment Industry!

Storytellers over 40

Hey filmmakers

So recently I had a conversation with a long time cinematographer who asked me what specific types of films we wanted for our Forty and Over Film Festival... and since we are open to all genres I would suggest the following wish list....  If your film Preaches, then we'd love for it to Inspire.  If yours Documents, then we'd love for it to Educate. And if your film is Fictional, then we hope it Entertains.  Our festival is looking for the best quality films we can find. Quality Performances, Great Story, written well and the Directors ability to tell that story on the screen. Our first deadline is March 15, so enter your films today. We very excited to see what you send us!  

Sincerely,

Frank - Festival Director
