You are cordially invited to join us for our second year in The Cindependent Film Festival, Cincinnati’s only multi-purpose, multi-genre film festival for professionals and community members.

We cultivate the entrepenuerial spirt of filmmaking through fantastic screenings, monetary and non-monetary awards, VIP and networking parties, live entertainment, filmmaker Q&As, live screenplay readings, and hosting artists from all over Ohio, the US, and the world.

to May 1

Opening Night Film Competition

The Opening Night Film Competition is a 'pitch-to-produced' film competition wherein one filmmaker will win the prize of having their story produced into a short film by Drive Media House, located in Cincinnati, Ohio! The final winner will work with Drive Media House in summer 2019 to produce the Opening Night Film for Cincinnati's Cindependent Film Festival.

Pitches are accepted from nationally and internationally, and submitter does not need to be local to Cincinnati to pitch and submit.

Pitch videos can be as simple as recording yourself making the pitch, or can be more complex and creative - it is up to you! Pitch videos must be in English, and no more than 3 minutes in length. They also must outline concept, story, feasibility, anticipated budget,and demonstrate why this story would make an amazing Opening Night Film.

Pitches should be about stories that could be filmed in 1-2 days with few characters (recommended 3-4 max,) with an anticipated run time of 2-8 minutes including credits.

Full details and competition rules are available here: https://filmfreeway.com/OpeningNightFilmCompetition
