The Great Lakes Christian Film Festival was created in 2014 by Shawn Greene, in Buffalo, New York. The festival was designed to gather Filmmakers, Screenwriters, Playwright, Directors, Editors, Actors/Actress, Cinematographers, Casting Directors, Crew Members, etc. Submissions began in November 2014 and were accepted until May 2015. Over 90 films were submitted the first year and were narrowed down to just over 50. The first GLCFF was at the Bread of Life Church in South Buffalo, New York from August 2015. Our 4th annual Film Festival is scheduled for August 1 – 4, 2019.
