Call for Film Submissions for annual Cumberland Film Fest

Submit your short film now to be a part of this grassroots event

Vancouver Island supplies a natural setting for visually stunning films.

Do you have a flair for film? A penchant for movie pictures?

You may have exactly what organizers of the Cumberland Mountain Film Festival are looking for.

The fifth annual Cumberland Mountain Film Festival goes April 10 at the Cumberland Cultural Centre, and there is still time to submit your short film about life on Vancouver island.

This highly popular grassroots festival features adventures, big and small, from around Vancouver Island. It is the only mountain film festival that features exclusively local content and is organized right here in the Comox Valley.

The festival is still accepting submissions of films between three and five minutes in length and submitted in HD 720p or 1080p format to cumberlandmountainfilmfest@gmail.com via Dropbox or a similar file sharing program. Please provide basic information such as the movie title, location, filmmaker, and contact information. The deadline to submit films is March 20.

This year, the event is being organized by the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) and the Youth Skatepark Committee as a fundraiser for the Cumberland Skatepark project. We hope to raise significant funds to turn the dream of a skatepark into a concrete reality! Youth or adults wishing to volunteer can email ccss.youthcoordinator@gmail.com for more information. Tickets are $15 and are available online at Eventbrite. This event sells out fast, so purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
