Central States IndieFanFilmFest

CSIFFF 2019 will be held May. 28 - 31, 2019 with 3 full days of LIVE SCREENINGS at the plush and smoke-free Jumer's Casino in Rock Island, IL. Their fantastic viewing rooms and discounted room rates make for a great intimate festival experience. Quad Cities International Airport is minutes away, or visit CHICAGO on the weekend - Chicago's O'Hare and Midway International Airports are within a few hours drive!

CSIFFF celebrates the diversity of Americans and all human beings, so in addition to our general call for submissions, we are issuing a call for films with innovative, progressive and balanced stories from and concerning women, the LGBTQ community, seniors, and those of Latin, African, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Native American descent.

CSIFFF's RED CARPET AWARDS CEREMONY on Friday is an evening long event and a night to remember - with a four-course meal, table wines, film clips, photo ops, and awards throughout. You won't want to miss it!

CSIFFF is an International Film Festival that also celebrates the creative talent and diversity of the American Central States. We are dedicated to REAL INDIE FILMMAKERS - not the big studio spinoffs calling themselves as such. Central States Indie FanFilmFest is held in Rock Island, Illinois, which along with Davenport, Bettendorf and Moline make up the Quad Cities along the Mighty Mississippi River in America's heartland.

Although FILMS WILL BE ACCEPTED FROM AROUND THE WORLD, additional categories are open for submissions from the following Central States: Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin.. 

We are very excited to meet you and to review your creative gem. We understand how precious each film is to its creators and will work with you and the growing Central States Film Community to cultivate your craft in the coming months and years. OUR PROMISE - to diligently endeavor to empower INDEPENDENT filmmakers and celebrate film CREATIVITY and DIVERSITY in the Central States and around the world!

"Barn Dance" (working title) - animated musical short

user
Hello, all! I am currently developing a short animated musical film with a lot of Cow-reography, tentatively titled "Barn Dance". If the story stands (and dances!) on its own, maybe even makes some headway in festivals, I am hoping to milk that for all it is worth--to get permission to use a specific piece of music.  If that doesn't work, I can come up with some music on my own or enlist help, but it was written with one song in mind. Please check out the attached script.&n...
