New Media Film Festival is the film festival you’ll want to enter

Pushing the envelope is a big deal in the film industry. You can’t just tell the same old stories to get your name out there. Someway, somehow, you have to innovate and tell a new story, or tell the same story in a completely different way. If that sounds like you, then there’s the perfect film festival to show off your work.

The New Media Film Festival, in its 12th year, is looking to get your name out there as the innovativer you are. No matter if you’re telling your story through more traditional mediums, or if you’re experimenting with XR, AI, or other mediums, there’s room for you at the festival. 

With judges from Marvel, FX, HBO, the Television Academy, and more, your innovation will not go unnoticed. No matter what genre or medium you use, there’s 25 categories for you to enter in.

25 categories with innovation left and right

Are you mixing up your camera work with more drone-focused shots? There’s a category for that. Did you create an experience through a mobile application? There’s two categories for that. Do you have just a regular feature film? Don’t worry, there’s still a category for that too.

No matter what kind of medium you used to tell your story, you have a spot at the New Media Film Festival. Podcasts, animation, 360 VR, music videos, TV pilots, and more will await you to enjoy. Even if you’re not creating something with a different medium, you’ll be able to experience these projects when you attend. 

Plenty of networking opportunities

With such unique projects being featured during the New Media Film Festival, you’ll definitely want to connect with people at the festival to find your next collaborator. Several of the festivals’ biggest successescame from people networking during the festival. 

With Q&As, soirees, art exhibitions, a red carpet, tables with marketing advice, and the awards ceremony, it’s easy to find a time to talk to your future muse. Plus, there’s even certain events the festival hosts designed with networking in mind to help you talk with the people you need. 

Prizes for all categories

Like most festivals, there’s a grand prize for the project that truly encompasses the values of the New Media Film Festival. If you take home the top prize, you’re looking at a distribution deal for your project, studio time, casting services, post production services, and production consultation for your next one, as well as meetings with Marvel and HBO.

Top in your category isn’t getting short-changed though. You’ll also get an opportunity for a distribution deal, as well as media and PR exposure for your project. If you take home top three in the script category, you’ll walk away $1,000 richer thanks to a combination of writing services, and you have a chance at the grand prize of the night.
