New Orleans Horror Film Festival

The New Orleans Horror Film Festival is a festival created by horror filmmakers for horror filmmakers. As film auteurs ourselves, we appreciate and admire the blood, sweat and tears that go into making movies, especially on an independent level. It’s no small wonder and no great surprise that so many of today’s top directors got their start in “low budget horror”. With determination and imagination, these artists have created some truly memorable work that has encouraged and inspired a new generation of filmmakers. The NOHFF is committed to celebrating the craft and the art of genre filmmaking at its best. Please visit the official NOHFF website at www.neworleanshorrorfilmfestival.com. Thanks.

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.

It's a Film

user
Well, I have finally seen ‘I’m Still Here’ and thought it was a great film – it’s a film not a documentary. It is by far a carefully edited and well-acted film much more than it is a documentary. I hear that a lot of people are bored now guessing whether it is a hoax or not (and I think I heard someone mention that Affleck has admitted that it is a hoax…) but either way its defiantley not a documentary. What I found most interesting was the very beginning of the film, as i...

REMAINDERED Makes News

#
The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reported on REMAINDERED today. They said, in part: "Remaindered" is about a once famous and successful author who is on a downward spiral in his career. He is in the midst of a self-funded book tour, which is humbling for the author. The author then meets a fan, and the encounter turns murderous in the comedy/mystery film. "Remaindered" takes its name from the term for a book being relegated to a store's bargain bin. The film ...
