FirstGlance Hollywood Film Fest Thanks you!!

We would like to thank the filmmakers, attendees, volunteers and sponsors for our most successful FirstGlance Hollywood event in our history!
With multiple sellout shows and great audiences all weekend long, we broke attendance records as well as had our most successful online contest with thousands of people viewing 25 short films!

We appreciate the support of indie filmmakers, for making our festivals possible and we hope to see you all in upcoming events.

We handed out 30 awards over the weekend to our Official Selections and will be announcing the BEST of the Fest and the highest rated films in each category as voted by the audience on our website.

Here is a little press from our event from our How to Be screenings, starring Robert Pattinson.

We are currently calling for entries for our Short and Feature Script Competitions and look forward to having the opportunity to read some amazing scripts, both in the short and feature contests.
Check out our site for entry info.

We are one of the most well-respected screenplay competitions, and one of the only totally "GREEN" events with over 200 Reams of paper saved over the past three years.

We are looking forward to a big announcement about our 12th annual FirstGlance Film Fest Philly. Philadelphia's Independent Film Festival since 1996!

Plans for our Fall Online Short Contest will begin around September 15th
And our Philadelphia Event is scheduled for October 22-25th 2009

FirstGlance Short Online Contest Winner!!

Online Distribution
Now that the contest is over, if you are interested in online distribution, let us know.
In the coming weeks, we will be launching on our site the ability to offer your title in a secure download to dvd technology created by one of the leaders in MPEG technology for PC and MAC. Consumers can purchase your short film or create their own compilation DVD and watch it in full definition on their home entertainment center.
It is a no-cost, non exclusive contract and you can profit from every download of your title.
We are also negotiating for Ipod and PSP compatible downloads as well, which would allow you to profit from 3 different download platforms.

Please join us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with FirstGlance events and announcements.
We will be posting pics and videos from the festival all weekend long!!
