Get your film into a festival!

For television/film production students, finding a way in to the film festival circuit can be a difficult task. Many of their competitors have industry connections, considerable funding, managers/publicists, and other professional resources such as state of the art equipment, sound stages, and distribution support.

The High Street Film Festival was created for students only. The festival will allow individuals to compete against other talented students as opposed to industry professionals.

It is our mission to prove that great films are not created by big budgets, high tech equipment, and extensive crews but by passionate individuals with creative stories and unyielding determination.


The High Street Film Festival will be held at George Eastman House's (Rochester, NY) Dryden Theatre on June 12th, 2010.

The festival will begin at noon and end at 6 p.m.

* Five hours will be dedicated to screening films

* One hour will be reserved for a brief intermission, closing statements, and post festival networking opportunity.

Why Submit?

1) The High Street Film Festival is a great opportunity for students, and only students, to have their creative works publicly premiered.

2) The judging panel for The High Street Film Festival will consist of several industry professionals from Los Angeles and New York City. The festival will be a great opportunity for students to have their works constructively criticized and praised by television/film actors, producers, writers, and directors.

* Also, once the event has concluded, students will have the opportunity to network and discuss future projects with the judging panel.

3) Acceptance into The High Street Film Festival will allow students to add this credential to their resumes therefore proliferating their professional appearance and increasing their appeal when applying for full-time employment in the television/film industry.

4) IT IS FREE TO SUBMIT! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

For information regarding submission procedures and a full list of the festival's rules/regulations please visit the festival's website at:
