"I feel like everybody's on the same level as far as grass roots, really independent, really doing it themselves. Nobody's really stuck up about anything."
That’s Preston Northrop, the producer of one of the many films we’ve screened, Motel San Fernando, describing his experience with The Valley Film Festival. User-friendliness is one of our great qualities, but we also offer filmmakers a Los Angeles setting, great screening facilities, a fair evaluation process, and openness to a wide range of independent films. Check us out filmmakers, if you haven’t already.
There is still some time to submit your short or feature-length film for just $50. The final deadline is mid-July:
April 1 - May 18 -- $50 per film (US)
May 19 - June 30 -- $75
July 1 - July 15 -- $100
We are seeking quality films of all kinds—narrative / fiction, documentaries, animation, music videos—that were produced independently anywhere in the world. The films or filmmakers may have some connection to the San Fernando Valley area, although this is not required.
The tentative festival dates are November 6-10, 2013 at a San Fernando Valley venue to be announced later this year. Last year, we were at the Laemmle NoHo 7. For more information, visit our website or Facebook page.
