Lubbock’s 5th Annual FLATLAND FILM FESTIVAL (F3) is a casual, fun-filled West Texas celebration of cinema drawing appreciative, film-loving audiences. This gem of an event delivers new and exciting films to the area each October.
F3 presents a popular program of short films and curated features crafted by emerging filmmakers, workshops and panel discussions led by industry professionals, and rounds out its packed-house-screenings with fun Flatland parties - all served with a heavy dose of Texas hospitality. The Festival offers over $3500 USD in cash prizes for live action, documentary, animation, and experimental short films, as well as a special award honoring a talented regional filmmaker.
During F3, filmmakers enjoy networking opportunities with visiting and local industry professionals, as well as an opportunity to connect with audiences. In a recent issue ofMovieMaker Magazine, F3 award-winner Annetta Marion declared, “The Flatland Film Festival is one of the best I’ve attended. Plus, with its great venue and appreciative audiences, it’s a true pearl.”
The Flatland Film Festival cultivates an appreciation for film, video, and digital moving-image expression. Now in its fifth year, F3 has begun to establish itself as a grassroots venue for independent shorts with a focus on films, the filmmakers, and their audiences.
Some past F3 guests include Robert Brinkmann (STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY’S BIRTHDAY PARTY), Keith Samples (ELECTION), actor DUANE WHITAKER (PULP FICTION), Sound Designer David Kneupper (WHAT DREAMS MAY COME), and UPM Joe Dishner (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE). Filmmakers are warmly welcomed to Lubbock and receive discounts on their hotel stay.
F3 hosts screenings at the Firehouse Theatre, an intimate state-of-the-art multi-purpose theatre and screening venue with digital media and surround sound in Lubbock.
The late deadline for participants is August 1st!!!
