Since we are moving the festival forward from June to April for the 31st event--an official announcement about our dates and our venue partners will be forthcoming--the time table for submissions this year is shorter. Filmmakers interested in submitting to an Oscar-qualifying film festival that promises to deliver some Southern Hospitality, check us out.
Dan Krovich, our new Festival Director, is looking forward to taking a look at the submissions.
I'll be writing more about the process soon. I believe filmmakers, audiences and industry folks alike might enjoy hearing about the elements and decisions that go into building a festival program.
