The Charleston International Film Festival isn’t the only film fest in town. The Charleston Film Festival, which is held at the Terrace Theater each March, is now accepting submissions for 2014. Filmmakers can send in both short and feature films through Feb. 1, 2014, and there is no fee for submission. The winning filmmaker will win a cash prize of up to $2,500, plus a week-long run of his or her film at the Terrace. Last year, the festival gave local audiences their only chance to see acclaimed features like the French Rust and Bone
and the regionally-produced Savannah
, and also showed the year’s Academy Award-nominated shorts.
Terrace owner Paul Brown, who founded and spearheads the festival, is again partnering with Park Circle Films for the Regional Shorts program, which showcases short films by filmmakers from around the Southeast. Those accepted will be screened during a dedicated block during the five-day festival. Submission forms can be downloaded from the Terrace’s website, terracetheater.org. The festival runs March 13-17, 2014.
