The Hollywood & Vine Film Festival (HVFF) celebrates artisticpreneurs! The mission of HVFF is to provide industry access to emerging content creators and to showcase their talent throughout the U.S. and in over 10 countries. Submission materials include media projects that have not yet been distributed through a mainstream outlet such as a studio, network or independent distributor. Acceptable projects include these categories: feature films, shorts, documentaries, web series, music videos, web series, TV pilots, scripts, trailers and even sizzle reels and artists' reels.
Presented by Hollywood & Vine magazine, HVFF will provide awards up to 30 filmmakers, and the grand prize winner will appear on the cover of Hollywood & Vine. Submissions are accepted from January 2, 2016 through the postmarked deadline of October 3, 2016. Winners will be announced at the festival and their projects will be screened. The fourth annual HVFF will take place online as a digital festival during the week of December 5. This year's platinum sponsor is ProductionHUB.
Applicants submitting to the festival will have industry access unlike any other festival. While the festival prizes total over $10,000, the industry value is priceless. Past HVFF judges have been prominent film/TV/music executives, agents and other power players working at ICM, Sony, Google/YouTube and BET among other entertainment companies.
