The 34th Annual WorldFest-Houston is the ONLY totally dedicated Indie film festival in North America...no majors...at all! Only new Indie Preems, with invited directors, as we feel that Miramax doesn't really need our help marketing their 'new' releases...after all, they own Sundance. We are the oldest film festival in the world operating under the very same management... a few others are older, but have had many different directors...some have even been fired twice. We gave first awards and honors to Spielberg, Lucas, Lynch, Randall Kleiser, Stone (Ollie), Scott (Ridley) and zillions of others. You could be next. Our juries are all serious pros, no office boys...no offense to OB's but they have not made movies and won awards. All of our staff are real filmmakers, no cultural bureaucrats or sleazy promoters here...This is a serious, dedicated Indie Film Festival with an attitude..."A GOOD STORY, WELL TOLD" A film festival by filmmakers, for filmmakers. Since we refuse Major studio money and films we are really Independent. We offer serious seminars (Vilmos Szigmund, Chuck Jones (He can be serious), Ridley Scott, Laszlo Kovacs) and great networking. A festival club where you don't need no stinkin' badges! No limos and cellphone agents, just great filmmakers. We send info on all our winners to the top 200 intl film festivals and you get invites to exotic locales...there is a catch, you have to win first. We publish a coffee-table program book that we send to the top studios, distributors, festivals, agents and agencies. We screen just 50 features and 100 shorts...we feel that festivals that show 200-300 features are insulting both the filmmakers and their audiences...as no one can possibly see 300 films in ten days and a lot of good films get unnoticed.
Our festival is filmmaker friendly and we are the only film festival in the world with a regatta, and BBQ, where we give you a yacht, lots of Shiner Bock beer and tons of BBQ. We also accept video, 16mm and 35mm and show it too...on Christie Digital Projection Systems...and our 2001 Web site will stream the winners...cool!
