Old Town Winchester

The 7th Annual Skyline Indie Film Fest is a casual four day festival held in the historic Old Town District of Winchester, VA, just a short drive from Washington DC.

Since 2013 we’ve focused on new, undistributed independent films and original screenplays of all genres from around the corner and around the world. Open to professionals and amateurs. Student filmmakers, 18 and under, always submit for free.

Over four days each September we screen feature and short films in intimate venues, host screenwriting seminars, table reads, guest filmmaker panels, breakfast and afternoon networking mixers, cocktail parties and more. It’s the perfect, family friendly way to wrap up summer and kick off the fall festival season. There are a fair share of parties and mixers but Skyline’s focus is the promotion and development of independent filmmakers and writers. We strive for the continued success of our festival alumni by maintaining relationships and continuing to support their projects outside of our festival. We’re grateful for their contribution and we’re proud to help our friends continue their journey.

Each year our growing, dedicated audience come out for the quality programming from our impressive collection of submissions. Each submission is screened at least three times so our audience can trust Skyline to provide challenging and entertaining programming by the tastemakers of independent cinema.

Our guests say it best! Quickly becoming recognized for our inclusive and dedicated support to independent filmmakers and writers, Skyline’s reviews are glowing!

These folks are wonderful, they took very professional care to review the submitted films with knowledgeable reviewers, so they chose a really excellent program of films of all types. And then, their hospitality was terrific, with such warmth and fun. The festival takes place up and down the local pedestrian mall which is lovely and a cool way to have several venues within walking distance. Top marks all around! – Alan BeckerSOLDIER

This is truly a great festival that cares about the indie filmmaker. Brian and Gina were excellent hosts and made sure everyone felt welcome and that their film was screened properly. The audiences were very well receptive and the screenings were well attended. The festival is nestled in a historical town and there’s tons to see in your off time. I’m sure this festival will continue to grow! – Pat BattistiniTIN CAN

Join us as we foster the indie spirit. Submit your film or screenplay today and join us in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester, VA this September to celebrate indie film at the 7th Annual Skyline Indie Film Fest.

Access or Nostalgia?

ByonwithComments Off on Access or Nostalgia?

A recent LA Times article titled “Our film and video history is threatened by the rise of streaming video, I say it’s not.

I’m not sure if this is a question of preservation and access or nostalgia. Physical media is ever changing, ultimately rendering current archival technology obsolete. No one can preserve everything. Should everything be preserved? [Read More…]

Today I’m at Mirandum Pictures with Mike Powell and Colin Mason. Actually it was in December 2014 and Mike and Colin have just given me a private screening of “OUTBREAK” one of seven short horror films they have created and will be screening later that same evening. You can hear the excitement of the office in the background as everyone is prepping for the screening. The conversation begins as the credits for Outbreak roll.
