  1. Many thanks for continuing to post no entry fee festival sites. This site is perfect for desktop filmmakers like myself; not interested in prizes, just appreciative audiences.

    1. Thanks, James! I have thought for many years about motion artists who create work and do not show them. I teach full time and know it is just an exercise until you share. When you share you become part of something. The thing that I didn’t anticipate was the degree to which I would become part of something by sharing festivals.
