We’re happy to announce the launching of a new film festival in Cary, NC called BEYOND: The Film Festival - a celebration of the many facets of the art of storytelling through film. BEYOND: The Film Festival will highlight all aspects of filmmaking, featuring a short film competition and screenplay writing competition (length – 30 minutes or less). Each year, the festival will explore a new theme and focus on some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the filmmaking process. The theme for this first year is “Hometown Stories.” The screenwriting competition, also for short films, is based on the same theme and will explore the foundational aspect of filmmaking – the script.
BEYOND: The Film Festival will be held June 14 – 17, 2018 at The Cary Theater in Downtown Cary
Attendees will enjoy the best short films we can find, a selection of invited feature length films, a sneak-peek into the world of the bedrock of film – the screenplay, social events and more!
Screenplays must have been completed after January 1, 2016. Submitted screenplays should be for short films and should not exceed 40 pages in length and written in English. Each screenplay must follow the theme of “Hometown Stories”, but is not limited to genre. Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2018 and the submission fee is $15.
Prizes include (but are not limited to):
• Each official selection will receive laurels
• The grand-jury winning script will receive a table read at the film festival
• The Festival will assist with transportation to bring the screenwriter to the festival
• The grand-jury winning script writer will get two (2) VIP Passes to attend screenings and events
