A call for entries is underway for the first-ever Lewiston Auburn Film Festival (LAFF), which will be held on April 2, 2011, in both Lewiston and Auburn, Maine.
You can read a little more here, or go directly to www.lafilmfestival.org for the details.
Instead of sticking viewers in a traditional cineplex, LAFF is coveting various downtown eateries, galleries, hotels, etc. into theaters for one day only. These locations will host either an afternoon of movies or an afternoon of workshops. One ticket will get festival goers in to all of the movies and workshops.
The call for entries seeks movies that were created between Jan. 1, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2010 Categories for films are: feature-length, short, documentary and experimental. There are prizes in every category along with a few other major prizes that will be announced, including a short film contract with a local publishing company.
In order to attract a diversified menu of applicants, organizers have kept submission fees low, and in it’s inaugural year, have waived them entirely for international applicants.
We want your films!!! Visit www.lafilmfestival.org for the submission form.
Deadline submissions December 31,2010
Lewiston and Auburn, with a rich history and bright future, is the perfect backdrop for a film festival. As you walk from one town to the other, across the bridge and over the mighty Androscoggin River that cascades over the Great Falls, you’ll see both our past and our future: Our past in the worn red brick mills that line the river, and our future in the enterprising new businesses that now fill them. We are the second largest community in the state and continue to grow every year.
Instead of sticking you in a traditional cineplex, each location participating in LAFF is doubling as a theater for one day only. These locations will host either an afternoon of movies or an afternoon of workshops. One ticket will get you in to all of the movies and workshops.
