AND NOW, THE BIG NEWS FOR 2017!

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. Now your winning film will have the opportunity for an audience of many thousands of viewers to preview it, for years to come, instead of maybe and audience of 50-100 or so, screened only once at a local film festival’s theatrical venue.

All selected 2017 Moondance films will be available online-only at Vimeo, with a private, dedicated Moondance pass-code for people accessing the winning & selected festival films to view them, and will not be available to the general public. It’s not a form of distribution. No film will be available for viewing until September, when all selected films are posted.

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.
