Streaming site Viewster has launched a new Online Film Festival, slated for March 2014, with $100,000 in prize money to be award to the fest’s winning films. The online festival is now accepting submissions through March for original films with the theme “When Life Gives You Lemons.”

The jury, headed by independent producer and TOH! contributor Ted Hope, will select three winners, with the top film taking home a $70,000 prize, while 2nd and 3rd place winners split the remaining $30,000.

And this is just the beginning -- Viewster plans on hosting four film festivals a year, with the focus being on material outside of the mainstream. Submissions must be at least 12 minutes long, not seen by more than five million viewers and must date from 2006 or later.
