We are back for year three and we expect this year, 2016 to be much bigger and better! The first season turned out to be a huge success with so many great films entered and shown in Asbury Park, NJ.
There have been festivals in the area in the past that have closed down or moved away. There are many other film festivals in the state of New Jersey but they are not close to the shore area in Central New Jersey. Other festivals focused primarily on feature films but what about that filmmaker who hasn't been able to make one yet? What about the artist who created a short film but is unable to show it or showcase their work? This is where we come in to the picture. We encourage screenwriters who have short film scripts of any length between 1 and 45-minutes to enter our festival.
We have low entry fees to keep things affordable. As a still-growing, young festival, we are unable waive any entry fees at this time, so please do not ask, thank you. We need to continue growing so each new year is better than the last!
