#new media #Film Festival proudly announced their 9th Annual festival merging story & technology for the globe. As New Media Film Festival ® approaches its 9th year, it continues to 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 categories include acronyms such as SRC (Socially Responsible Content), AI (Artificial Intelligence), AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). In addition to 3D, 5D, New Media, Web Series, Pilot, Digital Comic, APP, Mobile/Tablet, Drone and a Snipler ® (30 second pitch) there are the tried and true categories as well: Feature, Documentary, Trailer, Shorts, Script, Animation, Music Video and Student.

A global selection of content creators, filmmakers, and storytellers converge on #Los Angeles to learn from Industry leaders that attend, share their experiences in the Question and Answer segment that immediately follows their screening, and build relationships that last a lifetime. In addition, these content creators vie for $45,000 in Awards which include Best of Category Awards as well as Grand Prize Award.

The most exciting part of the festival are the opportunities given to content creators and filmmakers whether they are accepted into the festival or not. For example, Daniel Schmidt, creator of Inner World – Outer Worlds submitted, and even though his content was not accepted to compete and screen at the festival, he was offered distribution and accepted. To date, Daniel has received thousands of dollars from this distribution offer and recently stated: “Thanks- always awesome to get these payouts.”

The festival partners with other businesses and conferences to offer global possibilities to further advance content creators careers. At a Computer Graphics and Animation conference in Berlin, the Best VR winner of this season, Et Moi was introduced to the global audience.

Festival judging process

The review and judging process of the festival consists of career veterans from legendary companies such as Marvel and HBO. Nominees and winners from the Oscars and Emmys also provide their wisdom in the judging process.

“In the world of festivals, it is refreshing that there are no politics or pay to play at New Media Film Festival and it is run by a team of caring and passionate people that put the creators first and respects the content, not the profits.” – Angelwood Pictures

About New Media Film Festival

ABOUT NEW MEDIA FILM FESTIVAL: The Best in New Media: What’s New, What’s Next …honoring stories worth telling. "For those uncomfortable of the term 'new media,' fear not. This is a festival that makes the cutting edge accessible by seamlessly weaving the tried and true with the next wave. Perhaps best exemplified by 21-year-old opening night musician Charles Eliasch singing 19t- century opera by Bellini immediately followed by a presentation of edgy 3D films. So what is 'new media' exactly? Festival founder Susan Johnston defines it as "infinite possibilities." While that may seem broad, new media is broad. It's a vast realm with ever-changing tools and techniques encompassing any emerging methods of producing, delivering, and viewing of content from now into the unforeseeable future. The festival's categories might present the clearest picture of what new media can consist of. While there are no features on the schedule, webseries ("the new TV shows" says Johnston), animation, music videos, shorts, APPs and documentaries abound. In addition, technology is represented by categories including Shot on Red, mobile (cellphone created), machinima (video for the gamer lifestyle featuring 3D real time graphics and judged in competition by none other than the creator of Star Wars' R2D2), STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math - cool, educational programming on the digital space), Sniplers (30-second snippets of trailers), and Trailers - which, in the new media cinemascape, are statements in and of themselves - as important as the feature they are encapsulating." - Huffington Post 20 Categories - $45,000 in Awards, Screening, Distribution Opportunities. Meet the Filmmakers, Celebrities and Industry Leaders at the festival. Submit year round. Attend in June in Los Angeles CA www.NewMediaFilmFestival.com
