The Clearwater Film Festival debuts in Clearwater Florida on September 29 – Oct 3, 2010
The Clearwater Film Festival will showcase seasoned filmmakers and emerging artists who demonstrate the synergy of the actor, writer and director.
Actor/writer/director/turned film festival director, Mike Rembis puts it this way “When great talents work harmoniously the results may be beautiful, questionable or even shocking. When the talents of the actor, writer and director belong to the same person, the triple-threat filmmaker, those results are often extraordinary. It is here that we applaud those efforts.”
Four different screens across town will serve as the festivals main venues. Event planning is underway and the festival seeks actors, writers and directors to be guest panelists and quality film submissions of any length are welcome from all genres worldwide. World premiere features are now being considered for the opening night gala. Mike Rembis says “We may have access to one theater that seats over 2,000 people. The right movie could fill it and become a prime example of what film festivals are all about – great movies and big audiences”. Over the course of the 5 days there will be approximately 29,000 seats to fill and room for over 100 movies in both long and short form.
Filmmakers may submit through Withoutabox or the festival website, www.theclearwaterfilmfestival.com . In addition to narrative fiction, documentaries and animation will also be featured.
“You need not be a “triple-threat filmmaker” to participate, just show us what great teamwork can do, and bring your vision.”
