Type: Dedicated shortfilm festival
Location: Goldsboro,
Start Month: February


Description

Praxis Film festival is committed to enhancing the Eastern North Carolina cultural landscape by bringing quality films to the community. Praxis Film Festival seeks to provide opportunities to encounter, through film, other countries, cultures, and life circumstance. Praxis recognizes that film can help us develop understanding, compassion, insights into human nature, and an appreciation for all that connects people to each other individually and to the larger community. Last, but not least, Praxis believes good films bring joy and entertainment. Praxis Film Festival screens films that contribute in some way to its mission.


Submission Requirements:

The submission of a film to Praxis Film Festival requires confirmation that person(s) submitting is(are) authorized to submit the film as the Maker or an Agent of the Maker. Furthermore, person(s) submitting the film confirm(s) that all significant roles (Director, Producer, Cinematographer, Editor, Screenwriter) agree to submission of the film.
-Two films is the maximum number of submissions allowed by each filmmaker/filmmaking entity. Praxis desires to give a range of filmmakers an opportunity to win prize money. Thus, if two films are submitted by one filmmaker/filmmaking entity, Praxis will select one of the two for audience award competition. The film not selected for award may receive a special screening at the festival. Films may be submitted on DVD NTSC or PAL (please test before sending). We prefer films be available for screening as a digital file. We will not screen films in HDCam or DPC formats.
