Event Description

11th Annual New Media Film Festival®

Part of the C3 – United Nations – Millennium Project, the New Media Film Festival® was launched as an annual event during the 2009 C3: Center for Conscious Creativity IMMERSE IN THE FUTURE symposium held in Los Angeles. New Media Film Festival is the brainchild of media futurist and current president of Select Services Films Inc Susan Johnston. She saw the need for a unique event specifically catering to new media content artists that would “look at new technologies and how it merges with the story so people can go on the journey the story set out to create.” The result is an inimitable and exciting film festival that the organizers say creates “new opportunities outside the norm to bolster creators in media.” 

When you add this to the long list of firsts they’ve achieved, the organizers behind the New Media Film Festival® certainly have a lot to be proud of. Highlights from that list include being the first festival to celebrate ‘innovation, story, mediums and platforms’, the first to screen AI created film, show collaborative virtual reality content, host an AR International Art Exhibit, and distribute micro content.  The Festival also believes in giving back and over the years has supported a wide range of non-profit ventures including the Sea Research Foundation, EyeCare4Kids and more.

The Festival will present carefully chosen ‘stories’ produced by technologically innovative storytellers from around the globe.  

Available categories will again reflect the increasingly imaginative media uses for 21st century technology.  There will be over 20 sections available including Augmented Reality, Digital Comic, Drone, Mobile, New Media, Pilot, Podcast, Web Series, Virtual Reality, 5D.  Old favorites like Animation, Documentary, Feature, Music Video, Script, Shorts, Sniplers – 30 second pitch®, Student, and Trailers will also make a reappearance.  In short, there will be stories for everyone “created by people of all ages – from all cultures and all media.”  Some of the stories will be having their World Premier at the Festival, whilst for others it will be their first screening in Los Angeles.  Additionally, almost all nominations receive distribution and funding opportunities, even those not accepted to compete and screen at the festival. 

Along with technology giveaways, global event invites, and various other significant prizes there’s $45,000 in Grand Prize, Best in Category and Audience Award.  The Festival will also offer an Emmys® Award Consultant for one lucky entrant.  Participants further have the opportunity to socialize and network, are provided with a marketing table, can participate in Q and A’s and panels, social events, live music and more.
