The new year is bearing down upon us at breakneck pace and we here at Skyline already lining up interviews, collating information, dreaming up big time sponsors and thinking of way to make Skyline Indie Film Fest 2014 amazing. We had a great inaugural event in September 2013 and the feedback was amazing. Filmmakers that were present were pleased and several plan on making a return visit this year whether their next project is complete or not. The venue owners were great, accommodating and supportive almost all of them are going to be with us in 2014 and we couldn’t be happier. Here’s to a great festival in 2014.
Goals for 2014 are simply making Skyline Indie Film Fest bigger and better without losing focus on the principle, indie film. We hope to at least double the number of films (screeners and judges, you’ve been warned!), better focus our marketing and outreach to build our audience, more day-of presence, and we hope to include an opening reception, awards banquet (informal), live music events, and more. It’s going to be a great 3 days!
I’m very happy to have Addie Lingle back this year as festival programming manager. Last year Addie was tasked as a screener and as SkIFF progressed she became one of our most vocal ambassadors. We’re very excited that she has stepped up and is willing to donate her time and energies continue to grow this festival. Thanks Addie, can’t wait to get started!
Keep your eyes peeled for announcements in the near future! We’re working on events and activities between now and festival weekend to keep you indie spirit high and satisfied!
