We’ve spent the last year building a team, drumming up support, introducing ourselves to filmmakers and spreading the word for our Festival in the global indie markets. It hasn’t been easy but it is paying off. We are going to have a great weekend in September when we screen all the official selections to the Festival as determined by our panel of screeners. Prior to the screening weekend the official selections will be sent to our judges, which we are excited to say, should all be in attendance for the Festival awards ceremony!
Awards you say? Why yes! Skyline Indie Film Fest is a competitive festival. Prizes will be provided to the winners as sponsors come on board and will go home with a trophy and a Festival credential from the Skyline Indie Film Fest.
Filmmakers, please visit the Rules page and read the submission guidelines and judging criteria. I hope then you’ll privilege us by submitting your film via the Submit page where you can provide all the information about yourself, the film, submit your info and you can even pay online if you so choose.
Potential Sponsors and Donors, you can visit our Become a Sponsor page and see our sponsor levels and join us in fostering the indie spirit. The sponsor levels are simply guidelines and if you wish to donate some other amount we thank you. What do you get in return? The world will know that you support independent thinking and artistry, that you are willing to invest in the future of cinema, the knowledge that your sponsorship or donation will help us nurture the indie film culture, and thousands of impressions for your business, organization, foundation, or charity because that is important, too.
Audience members, we love you! We are you! We’re not movie makers, we’re simply movie lovers! We’ve created this festival out of a desire to see creative, intelligent, opinionated, stimulating, and entertaining films that we may not otherwise have an opportunity to view. Spread the word and join us in September. Full auditoriums at the Festival venues will ensure our success, draw attention to our little festival and allow us to extend our reach.
We are very excited and proud of what we’ve accomplished to date and we hope you’re getting excited, too. So please, take few minutes and click around the site, visit our social sites, send us suggestions, if you’re willing you can volunteer to help, or if you’re really interested talk to us about a staff position in the Festival, and spread the word.
This is going to be fun!
