All submissions to the 2016 Great Lakes Christian Film Festival will be finalized by June 15, 2016.
It has been a long year, yet time has gone quickly since last year’s film festival. It has been an amazing experience as we continue this journey of bringing you the best faith-based films from around the globe. Last year we had over 90 films submitted to our festival, with just over 50 becoming official selections. There were many great films on the cutting floor that either didn’t fit the criteria or may have just been a little under the quality we were looking for. Nevertheless, those that did not make it still were excellent films and could possibly win at other festivals abroad.
This year, we promise the same quality assurance in selecting the best films to be screened. Some of the selections will be selected and reviewed but may not make the screening, depending on the scheduling, but will be available via the GLCFF TV page via the YouTube playlist. We received over 150 submissions this year and I have to say, we are just as impressed, if not more, as we were with this year’s films. We promise to give every film it’s due diligence and review them thoroughly making sure we not only have the best films represented, but making sure we give honor to those who have excelled in their productions.
We are excited to bring you our 2nd annual Great Lakes Christian Film Festival and look forward to hosting you, your team, actors, crew, etc, to our festival. Buffalo, New York is not only a great place to host the festival, but it has been a coveted location for film companies. Several films have recently been shot here including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and currently under production Marshall (2016) about a young Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice.
Once we make our official selections we will announce ticket sales for admission and vendor deals. Thank you for your patience.
See You Soon!!
