Regular Submission Deadline and Opportunity to be Involved:
Summer is fast approaching and that means Newtown Film Festival’s Regular Submission Deadline will be coming up June 1st. Take this chance to submit your work or pass along the information encouraging others to join.
Once again, the festival's mission is aimed to support family-friendly, educational, feel-good films of all lengths. Our programming team is working hard to curate a feature and short program that accurately reflects these values.
In addition to the upcoming deadline, we are in search of some special guests who can help make the First Annual festival a fantastic experience. As we aim to bring film to the area, we also aim to bring the people who help create these films.
Newtown Film Festival is working on panels that will take place throughout the three days and will feature industry members, filmmakers of all ranges, and key people that bring these stories to life. Since the festival is rooted in the community, we are reaching out for your help!
If you know of anyone exceptionally knowledgeable or gifted in the art of filmmaking or the industry, please feel free to reach out to us.
