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 to 25 filmmakers, and the grand prize winner will appear on the cover of Hollywood & Vine. Submissions are accepted July 6, 2012 through the extended deadline of September 17, 2012. Winners will be announced at the festival and their projects will be screened. The first annual HVFF will take place on December 7-8, 2012 in the Los Angeles area. This year's presenting sponsor is the Showbiz Software Store & Café and our 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. HVFF judges are prominent film/TV/music executives, agents and other power players working at Sony, ICM, Google/YouTube, BET and CBS, among other entertainment companies.
