Breck film fest: call for entries
January 3, 2014
The 2014 Breckenridge Festival of Film, slated for Sept. 18-21, has put out the call for entries. Films will be accepted in traditional categories, including documentary, comedy, drama, short comedy, short drama and spiritual.
The festival has added adventure films as a new category for 2014, following the successful Adventure Reel, new to the Festival of Film in 2013.
Local and global filmmakers have historically submitted films, making the Breckenridge Festival of Film an international event. Attending filmmakers never fail to give the festival accolades for being filmmaker-friendly. Daily social events and a thriving hospitality suite are dedicated to making the filmmakers' festival experience unique and valuable.
"The entire village of Breckenridge seemed supportive of the festival, and we felt appreciated every step of the way — at the festival events (like the filmmaker panel) and get-togethers. There was a feeling of camaraderie amongst the attending filmmakers, who obviously also felt welcomed and respected," said filmmaker Toby Poser, who attended last year and presented his independent film "Knuckle Jack." "The films we saw were of really fine quality, and we were especially impressed by the Breckenridge audiences themselves. Our Q&A was the longest and most in-depth we've experienced yet on the festival circuit. The Breckenridge Festival of Film is a well-run, honorable festival to which we hope to return one day."
Submission fees are lowest in the early-bird period, which ends Monday, Feb. 17. The regular rate is $40 per film; the student rate is $35. Local, regional, national and international filmmakers are encouraged to submit amateur and professional films.
The festival is particularly interested in receiving locally produced adventure films.
