SAVE THE DATE! February 11, 2022, select films will be screened at The Smith and awards will be presented.
The Geneva Downtown Film Festival supports the fresh ideas of film and video artists who have a story to tell and the passion to tell it. It celebrates innovation, diverse voices, and the exploration of film as an expressive medium. It believes in cultivating a community of filmmakers and film lovers of all levels of experience, and welcomes work from makers at any stage of their careers: students to experienced filmmakers; emerging artists to established professionals. This year, the Geneva Downtown Film Festival invites filmmakers to submit their short works (20 minutes maximum) in any genre, including but not limited to: animation, documentary, live action narrative, and video essay.
There will be 4 categories: High School, College, General, and 5-minute Micro Films (open to all levels).
Judges will select the best films and runners up from each category, and these will be screened at The Smith Opera House, a historic site in the heart of the Finger Lakes, on February 11, 2022. Prizes will be awarded for the best film in each category. All works selected for awards and public screening will receive official Geneva Downtown Film Festival graphics for use in their marketing
