Filmmakers

Our 21s festival will be both live in Ashland (April 14-18) and virtual (April 19-28)  on our Eventive channel, supplemented by special indoor and outdoor events in Ashland. This year, every feature film selection will be paid an exhibition fee, and all short and feature films will be up for the cash prizes we give to our jury awardees.  Our festival was again recognized among the "Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" by MovieMaker in 2021, and we have drawn plaudits, as always, for the quality of our programming and discussions and for the socializing and networking opportunities we offer filmmakers both live and online.
