The Cutting Room Festival is receiving entries for short films, feature films, documentaries, web series episodes in the flowing genres: Drama, Comedy, Horror, Music Video, Student Films, Faith and Family, For Kids/By Kids, Animation, Women Issues, Foreign Films, LGBT and Unscripted projects.
The Film Festival will be broadcast over the PeachFlicks Roku Channel between April 28 and May 6, 2017. Viewers can watch from home, at organized screening parties and negotiations are in the works to distribute the festival through a major US theater chain. Entries are $10 and EVERY entry will be included in the broadcast. Only official selections will be eligible for cash prizes.
Festival organizers, Jon Graham and Debra Matassino wanted to create a festival where everyone at least gets on the screen. “Utilizing the 24/7 unlimited outlet of the PeachFlicks Roku channel makes for a great vehicle for the fest,” said Graham.
The 24 hour, worldwide broadcast will also feature workshops and live Q&A with filmmakers. Viewers will be able to vote and interact with filmmakers through the Cutting Room Film Fest App (in development).
