The Open Art Film Festival shines the spotlight on new generation film makers with a voice. Supported by The Sinclair Arts Theater Company and The Open Art Surgery Project the festval encourages first time film makers to screen their work and gain feedback from industry professionals and film fanatics alike.
The festival program offers three awards in each of the following categories:
A narrative film deals with a fictional or fictionalized story, event or narrative.
In this style of film, believable narratives and characters help convince the audience that the unfolding fiction is real.
Fine Art Discipline
A fine art film is typically a serious, independent film aimed at a niche market rather than a mass market audience. It is intended to be a serious artistic work, often experimental and is made primarily for aesthetic reasons rather than commercial profit.
Dance on Film Discipline
A dance film is a film in which dance is a central theme of the story. In such a film, the creation of choreography typically exists only in film or video. At its best, dance films use filming and editing techniques to create twists in the plot line, multiple layers of reality, and emotional or psychological depth.
