July 18--The third annual StarLite Film Festival, taking place Jan. 23-26, 2014, at the Garden Theatre has announced its deadlines for film submissions.
This micro-budget film festival promotes the screening and development of feature-length narrative films from across the globe that are produced, shot and completed for a total budget of less than $200,000. During its four days, the film festival will feature hand-selected films screened at the Garden Theatre in historic downtown Winter Garden.
In keeping with the low-budget theme, the entry fees are easy on the wallet. Here they are:
-- Earliest Deadline: 7/31 -- $20 mail/$15 online
-- Really Early Deadline: 8/27 -- $25 mail/$20 online
-- Early Deadline: 9/26 -- $30 mail/$25 online
-- Regular Deadline: 10/30 -- $45 mail/$30 online
The festival is seeking narrative feature-length films (between 70-110 minutes). Award categories include: Best Domestic Film, Best International Film, Audience Choice Award, and the Board of Directors Choice Award.
Films may be submitted by direct mail or online. For full submission instructions, go to starlitefilmfest.com
The Garden Theatre first introduced the StarLite Film Festival in 2012 with an attendance of 900. At the most recent festival, audience members heard from keynote speaker, Robin Cowie, the producer of the famous and wildly successful micro-budget film "The Blair Witch Project." The 2013 festival also found a new way to engage the community through a program in which filmmakers shared their experience with students at Dr. Phillips High School.
