The biggest thing is this is a CHRISTIAN Film Festival. What does that mean? For starters, this is a festival for Christian Filmmakers or anyone looking to submit a Christian-themed film. The target audience is for the whole family. Some projects, such as Passion of the Christ, might be graphic or unsuitable for children under 14 years old. We suggest you please give us warning as to the content of the film so we can categorize it differently than a general audience rating. The idea is to provide indie Christian Filmmakers an outlet and possible success full-time, as well as, opportunities for veteran movie industry folks to network, mentor, and inspire the next generation film stars and moguls.
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 16 – 19, 2015. The next Film Festival is scheduled for August 3 – 5, 2017. Submissions close May 31st.
