Lake Travis Film Festival SUBMISSIONS OPEN
October 2, 2019
The inaugural Lake Travis Film Festival, aimed at showcasing innovative work from around the world, will be held February 27 - March 1, 2020. Nestled in the breathtaking Texas Hill Country, the festival connects independent filmmakers and industry professionals with our vibrant community audience.
With preparation well underway, we are now accepting submissions from filmmakers and screenwriters of all ages. Via the online submission platform Film Freeway (https://filmfreeway.com/LakeTravisFilmFestival) submissions will remain open until our extended late deadline of December 1, 2019.
Awards will be given in the following categories:
Best Feature Film
Best Short Film
Best Short Documentary
Best Music Video
Best Texas Film
Best Student Film
Best Feature Script
Best Short Script
Our goal is to enrich cinephilia and cultural awareness within our community, using the backdrop of gorgeous terrain to inspire up-and-coming creatives.
The Lake Travis area, with its array of visitor activities, offers several hotels that will house our screenings, parties and workshops. Intimate discussions, along with exclusive access to the area’s most exciting venues, will make the LTFF an exciting go-to for filmmakers in Central Texas and beyond.
In addition, we will spotlight new music with our Best Music Video category. Regional talent will perform at the festival, ranging from rock bands to electronic musicians who have demonstrated an affinity for filmmaking.
We will also host a showcase for young filmmakers, with a jury electing one entry for our Best Student Film category. In time, this will accompany an annual scholarship for Lake Travis students pursuing a film education.
The festival will be preceded by Countdown to ONE, a period of bi-monthly film panel discussions, member screenings and parties. To learn more about these events, or inquire about volunteering at the LTFF, visit www.laketravisfilmfestival.com
