Charleston Film Festival

Works must have been produced in the last 18 months. In line with a strong belief that festivals are a chance for local audiences to see a locally made film, works are allowed to have been shown at other events and fests. Content submitted for the Lowcountry Indie Shorts Festival can be automatically considered for submission to Charleston Film Festival.

In keeping with its strong tradition of local and state ties, the Festival is pleased to announce its continuing relationship with the Greater Park Circle Film Society, the Indie Grits Festival in Columbia, the Art Institute of Charleston, the Charleston Jewish Federation and the Savannah College of Art and Design.
