One of my friends, Daniel Sanchez, works on the board and pointed me to this dope new film festival which is taking place inside of a tennis club in Forest Hill, NY. They’re currently looking for submissions before June 30th. The fee is only $15 and there some really cool prizes like a $500 cash award, a plaque with certificate and announcement of award, a month long pass to Forest Hills Regal theater and a month long pass to American Museum of Moving Image.

It’s really a one of a kind event in which I will be submitting my films as well. I hope this gets in the hands of some hungry filmmakers looking to have their films screened. Festivals are also good for networking. I’d love to meet some of you!
