GET A FEELING OF THE AMBIANCE WATCH OUR PHOTO GALLERY

You are cordially invited to be part of the upcoming 51st  Annual WorldFest-Houston! The oldest Indie Film Festival in the whole wide world! WorldFest gave first awards to giants of the film industry, including Spielberg, Lucas, Ang Lee, the Coen Brothers, Ridely Scott, John Lee Hancock, Randal Kleiser, Oliver Stone, David Lynch and literally hundreds more! We are happy to accept Online FilmFreeway Screeners! We have Big LG 110" Digital Screens for our juries! Not little laptops. Since we show our Remi Winners on big AMC Theater screens, it seems right that we look at your production on a big flat screen! We do also accept DVD, BLURAY or USB FLASH/PEN/JUMP DRIVE for juding and for Theater Screening. Region Zero, please! (If you win a Remi, you may be screened on big AMC 60-foot screens to 600+ theater audience!! So we need a BluRay or Jump Drive for the DCP screening! Large juries view your entry on a big digital screen, not a little laptop! {Screenplay entries must be bound}! We will personally confirm your entry's arrival. We will personally let you know the jury results, and if you win a Remi Award, we will invite you to attend the 50th WorldFest. We do prefer Premieres! We discovered Spielberg, Lucas, Ang Lee, The Coen Brothers, Coppola and David Lynch, with their Premieres - those many new festivals did not! Therefore WorldFest requires a Premiere of some level, World, USA, South West! If your entry if it has been all over, we reserve those screening slots for true Premieres, but you could still win a Remi Award. 
Script Winners receive an InkTip Script Listing: A listing of your script on InkTip so that producers and reps can find you. 
InkTip helps writers sell their scripts and get representation. Producers have made more than 200 films from scripts and writers they found through InkTip.
