KahBang Film Festival

The KahBang Film Festival is one portion of the KahBang Music-Art-Film Festival, happening this August 5th - 13th 2011, in downtown Bangor, Maine. KahBang is not just another festival. It is a brand. A brand built around discovering "the next big thing" in the arts and entertainment worlds.


The KahBang Film Festival is 9 days of films that we think are cool. Some are cool for different reasons, others are cool for the same reasons, while still others are both at the same time. If it makes us laugh, if it makes us think, if someone blackmailed us to screen it, we share it with you. If you don't like it, we'll give you a refund (please note: The KahBang Festival does not offer refunds).

At the end of the day, we love films, we love filmmakers with vision, and we love Milk Duds. Our festival pays tribute to the iconic artists, the emerging auteur and even the epic fail. We hope you will join us this August and discover "cool" the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

Lewiston Auburn Film Festival

A call for entries is underway for the first-ever Lewiston Auburn Film Festival (LAFF), which will be held on April 2, 2011, in both Lewiston and Auburn, Maine.

You can read a little more here, or go directly to  www.lafilmfestival.org for the details.

Instead of sticking viewers in a traditional cineplex, LAFF is coveting various downtown eateries, galleries, hotels, etc. into theaters for one day only. These locations will host either an afternoon of movies or an afternoon of workshops. One ticket will get festival goers in to all of the movies  and workshops.

The call for entries seeks movies that were created between Jan. 1, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2010 Categories for films are: feature-length, short, documentary and experimental. There are prizes in every category along with a few other major prizes that will be announced, including a short film contract with a local publishing company.

 In order to attract a diversified menu of applicants, organizers have kept submission fees low, and in it’s inaugural year, have waived them entirely for international applicants.

 We want your films!!! Visit www.lafilmfestival.org for the submission form.
 

 Deadline submissions December 31,2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lewiston and Auburn, with a rich history and bright future, is the perfect backdrop for a film festival. As you walk from one town to the other, across the bridge and over the mighty Androscoggin River that cascades over the Great Falls, you’ll see both our past and our future: Our past in the worn red brick mills that line the river, and our future in the enterprising new businesses that now fill them. We are the second largest community in the state and continue to grow every year.

Instead of sticking you in a traditional cineplex, each location participating in LAFF is doubling as a theater for one day only. These locations will host either an afternoon of movies or an afternoon of workshops. One ticket will get you in to all of the movies and workshops.
