3rd Annual Roseville Film & Animation Festival Accepting Submissions

Join us for a weekend celebrating the diversity of styles in the ever-emerging field of Film and Animation. Attendees will experience a selection of films, art and animated works from around the globe at the historic Tower Theatre in old Roseville, culled from independent artists and major motion picture companies. 

Friday evening, October 24 will feature short films from around the globe and a "Best of" the Sacramento International film & Music Festival element. Saturday, October 25 will celebrate animated films from around the globe, including an animated film challenge hosted by the Art Institute of Sacramento. Entrants in the film competitions will receive a personalized trophy commemorating the 2014 Roseville Film & Animation Festival.

Roseville is a growing city, and critical to its expansion as a cosmopolitan arts hub is the introduction of emerging and relevant arts and entertainment from larger, established industries. We want to inspire attendees of all ages to experience the arts at personal levels rather than merely as audience members. Whether returning to the animation breakthroughs of the early 1900’s or exploring the offerings of current award-winning masterpieces, including premieres of original works from local and national artists, our goal is to provide Roseville with a unique adventure through the imaginations of artists in order to revitalize the creative spirit within every patron. 

Your participation is encouraged. For opportunities to sponsor, donate, partner or participate in Roseville’s Third Festival of Film & Animation, or for related questions, please contact Jason Bortz, Media Director of Stand Out Talent, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to education in and production of live and media arts. All Sponsors/Donors will receive receipts for tax purposes in addition to appearing in printed marketing materials. 

For selection and programming consideration, the festival accepts DVD and Blu-Ray submissions.

More than one film or video may be submitted. Each film or video must be accompanied by a separate submission form and entry fee.

Participants must ensure that they have the right to participate in the Festival with regard to third persons connected to the production of selected films or videos. The Festival rarely pays (and never charges) screening fees and it is assumed that any film submitted without specific reference to a requested screening fee in the cover letter is both available to be screened, with no legal restrictions, and without expectation of a fee being paid.
