The 2018 Moondance call-for-entries will open earlier than usual: September 1, 2017,
so if you missed submitting a project for 2017, get ready for the 2018 call-for-entries!
Moondance 2017 is very pleased to announce that the entire film festival this season will be online-only! All submissions to be entered online, and all winning & selected films will be screened online. How the online film festival works: all selected films will have a photo still & mini-synopsis/logline on the Moondance website, with a private link and passcode to view the film on Vimeo. All submissions are to be entered online, and all winning & selected films will be screened online.
No need to burn a DVD or Blu-ray and sending it to the film festival. Now your film will have the opportunity for a local & an international audience of many thousands of viewers to preview it, on a computer or any mobile device, for a long time to come, instead of maybe an audience of 50-100 or so, screened only once at a local film festival’s theatrical venue. The online film festival dates will be announced in July, but is expected to open for selected film screenings in late August or early September.
This is truly today’s preferred, state-of-the-art & most important global networking, promotional & networking advantage!
Writing & music selected winners all submission categories will also have their winning work listed online. Winners will have their titles, loglines & links posted on the website.
