Many of the short films accepted in the 2011 festival received a lot of attention.

One of the films from 2011 went viral and now has over 2 million views from the exposure it received from the festival.

Films will be seen in front of a wide, international, and very attentive audience.  The traditional film festival often gives your film limited exposure and many times filmmakers can’t attend.  With a live-online festival, filmmakers have an opportunity to reach their audience and INTERACT with that audience as if they were attending a film festival in a theater.

Last year, our festival was one of the most active Pages on Google+.

Here is the second film block from 2011


Our goal is to create the best online film festival experience, giving the most exposure to filmmakers, having interaction with an audience, and to recreate many of the things that we love about physical film festivals.
