Fallbrook Film Festival - The Frank Capra Award- Call For Films

http://www.fallbrookfilmfestival.com/

 

https://www.withoutabox.com/01festival/01t_acc/01t_acc_edit.php?festival_id=6206

 

Located in Southern California, Fallbrook and its surrounding communities is a beehive of creative energies: artists, sculptors, writers, actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and filmmakers. In 2006, the non-profit Fallbrook Film Factory was formed to foster filmmaking activities similar to community theatre, and out of that the Fallbrook International Film Festival evolved, now entering its fifth season. Fallbrook was also the family home to one of Hollywood’s all-time filmmaking legends Frank Capra during the height of his filmmaking career. To that aim, we have been most fortunate to gain the support of the Capra family, allowing us to host a very special award in his name. And this year, due to the strong support from the Hollywood stunt community, we are adding Action Films as an award category and workshops with top stunt directors, reveling this hidden art of filmmaking.
