Reynolda Film Festival Information

As Director and Filmmaker Liaison of the second annual Reynolda Film Festival, we are both eager and proud to announce the opening of our Submission Season, which began this past Friday, October 31st. Open to undergraduate and graduate students, the Reynolda Film Festival is organized entirely by students for students.

WAKE TV, Wake Forest University's student run television station, is responsible for the conception of the Reynolda Film Festival. Last year, we received submissions from over 15 countries, yet we maintain a relatively small size and encourage submissions from filmmakers of any and all levels of experience. Synonymous with our mission statement, we at the Reynolda Film Festival promise to inspire, entertain, and challenge our audience and student filmmakers.

This is the Reynolda Film Festival's second year. After an overwhelmingly successful inaugural year, we are once again excited about the potential of the festival to provide undergraduate and graduate film students with an event in which they can showcase their work, network with other aspiring filmmakers, and reward their creativity with prizes that will continue their pursuit of filmmaking.

The Reynolda Film Festival aims to assist exceptional student filmmakers in receiving the recognition they deserve for their creative work. Finalists' films will be screened by a wide audience of students and faculty, industry professionals, and community members during the festival weekend. A panel of industry judges will view the best selections and present awards and prizes at the end of the weekend. Prizes will be announced as soon as the details are finalized.

Please submit your films (short or feature length) to the Reynolda Film Festival online at www.WithoutABox.com. The final deadline is January 23, 2009. Please visit our website or our Without A Box profile for more information as well as festival updates. The festival will take place from April 1st through the 5th, at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC.

If you have any questions about submissions and the festival, please contact us at RFFsubmissions@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing your work!
