The Moondance International Film Festival has invited talented US and International filmmakers, writers and music composers to submit their films, written works and film scores to its annual competition season. Moondance celebrates, encourages, inspires, and supports original independent films, written works and music, not just during our film festival, but throughout the year, and screens the very best in independent cinema to enthusiastic audiences from the US and around the world.
Our super-productive workshops, pitch-panels, networking parties and events, film screenings, filmmaker Q&A’s, and gala awards ceremony and reception have been very popular and always very well-attended.
The secret to our international success and longevity can be directly attributed to upholding our founding principles, goals, values, unimpeachable integrity, and our unique mission. We have always made a concerted effort to inspire talented filmmakers, writers, composers, attendees and audiences, locally and globally.
Maintaining the Moondance reputation for top-quality indie films, professional workshops, and productive networking events, has always been the first priority. Our valued sponsors, donors, supporters, friends of the Moondance, as well as our professional staff, competition entrants, workshop & master class presenters, keynote speakers, audiences and festival attendees, are integral elements of our long-term success.
