WHY call it the HOLLYWEED FILM FESTIVAL ?

Did you know that in 2017, after marijuana was legalized in California, an artist/prankster climbed up to the sign, at night, in the rain and altered the world famous sign from Hollywood to Hollyweed, thus causing an international news story and creating a psychological disruption for the business as usual residents of Los Angeles. We aim to disrupt business as usual with the Hollyweed Film Festival. You know the drill, submit your film, pay the fee and never hear back from whatever festiva...

BEYOND: The Film Festival

This June we will launch our first annual film festival, celebrating the many facets of the art of storytelling through cinema. Featuring screenplay and short film competitions that are far beyond ordinary, this four-day festival takes place right here in downtown Cary, NC.

Cary-Theater_Beyond-Film-Festival

We’re attracting filmmakers from across the country who’ve submitted their screenplays and short films (>30 minutes) embodying some unusual incarnations of this year’s “Hometown Stories” theme. Join us for a weekend of fun and an enjoyable cinematic experience open to the community.

WHY BEYOND?

The roots of our slogan “Beyond Ordinary” originate from the Town’s moniker from the late 1700s as Bradford’s Ordinary. It represents our mission of providing a unique setting to experience affordable art house cinema. As we launch our inaugural festival this year, we invite you to participate in what we expect to be a unique cultural arts experience here in the Town of Cary.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE FILM FESTIVAL

Attendees will enjoy the best short films we can find from filmmakers far and wide, including a selection of invited feature-length films, and short film and screenplay submissions. The festival will offer a stimulating sneak-peek into the minds of filmmakers and showcase the bedrock of cinema: the screenplay. Join us for social events and other fun activities to make the festival one you won’t want to miss!
