ENGLISH (↓versión española abajo↓)

“99.media is a carefully curated selection of documentaries from around the world swooping down into extraordinary lives.” — Rob Alderson, WePresent

99.media is a new kind of documentary film festival: both online and in real life.

It is a free and not-for-profit video platform streaming documentaries in 6 languages (English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Italian) + a series of live screenings in different cities where our languages are spoken.

Our objective is to democratize documentaries thanks to multilingualism and to help filmmakers get wider audiences and more impact.

°°°°°

"99.media has embarked on a beautiful campaign to share films with the world. Subtitling my film from Arabic and English into a half-dozen languages opens the door for cross-cultural impact in ways I’ve always dreamed about. Their initiative to share powerful works of art with the world is a noble calling, and I’ve watched as my film has reached new people. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have my film play on their platform."
— Matthew K. Firpo, filmmaker

"99.media translated my documentary into 5 additional languages, ultimately helping the film reach a much wider audience, and become globally relevant. Films are made to be seen, and reaching an international audience like this is invaluable”.
— Lukas Shrank, filmmaker

“My short documentary was translated into 5 languages by 99.media, which helped it gain a lot more exposure and massively increased its global reach. I have a lot of respect for, and trust in the team, who has always dealt with me in a professional and honest fashion and who I believe has a real passion for short film and a lot of respect for filmmakers.”
— Andy Oxley, filmmaker

ESPAÑOL

“99.media: Una selección de documentales de todo el mundo que narran historias extraordinarias.” — Rob Alderson, WePresent.

99.media es una plataforma que difunde gratuitamente documentales subtitulados en varios idiomas. Aquí encontrará historias de todos los lugares del mundo y películas con un mensaje universal, para conocer mejor el mundo que le rodea.

Nuestra dinámica es similar a la de un festival. Los realizadores nos envían sus documentales para darles una mayor difusión. Si estas películas corresponden a nuestra línea editorial las subtitulamos en 6 idiomas. Cada película seleccionada obtiene una importante difusión que abarca más de la mitad del planeta.

Además, organizamos proyecciones de las películas seleccionadas en locales específicos en todo el mundo. Así, cada película constituye un evento colectivo que fomenta el diálogo y la cohesión social.

Nuestro objetivo es hacer llegar el documental al mayor público posible y difundir esas historias que pasarían inadvertidas, y que son cosas que le ocurren al 99% de la humanidad.

°°°°°

"99.media ha adaptado mi corto documental a cinco idiomas. Esto le ha dado mucha más visibilidad y ha aumentado su visionado a nivel mundial. Tengo plena confianza y respeto por el equipo de 99.media. Confío en su profesionalismo y honestidad. Me parece que tienen una auténtica pasión por el documental y un gran respecto por los realizadores.” — Andy Oxley, realizador

"99.media tradujo mi película a 5 idiomas adicionales para hacerla más accesible y que tuviera así más proyección internacional. Las películas están hechas para ser vistas y por lo tanto llegar a un público internacional, no tiene precio." — Lukas Shrank, realizador

Come be part of one of the most fun events in California's far north and the "premier festival of the mythical 51st State of Jefferson!" We love our filmmakers and screenwriters, and have an amazing audience. Win a belt buckle and have one hell of a good time. Plus! Awards are listed on IMDB and winners of the FLIXX FEST screenplay competition will receive a live table read and a special InkTip prize package. (See Awards Below)

Some of the feedback from previous attending filmmakers:

"Amazing Festival!! Awesome time!! Filmmakers are treated like family!! Absolutely recommend!!" (Lori Stoll, director, HEAVEN’S FLOOR)

"Awesome festival run by great film lovers and makers who go far and beyond to create an enjoyable experience for both the filmmaker and audience! Highly recommend.” (Shawn-Caulin Young, actor/producer, HEART, BABY!)

“It was one of the best experiences of my life.” (screenwriter Bill Baber, PERFIDIES)

"A outlaw-ish alternative to the standard film festival!"
- Tzang Merwyn Tong (writer-director, FAERYVILLE)

"One of the best festivals I've been to!" Marlyn Mason (Actor, DEAR FUTURE SELF)

FLIXX FEST takes place in 2-3 venues nestled in the scenic and historic Scott Valley among the majesty of the Marble Mountains. We are committed to bringing the best in independent filmmaking to an audience hungry for film, and showcasing films and screenplays that especially capture some of the region's iconic values: landscape, authenticity, beauty, irreverence, the outdoors, vision, rebellion and independence, in whatever form that takes. We also highly encourage local and regional interest films and animation.

Typically we screen between 45-60 films including shorts, and have gladly welcomed the attendance of several filmmakers. There is also a live actor-read table read of the winning screenplay and close to 2000 Flixxfesters. This year will be the 5th anniversary of the festival so filmmakers can look forward to another amazing and sold-out weekend in September. Competition awards are typically presented on Saturday at a truly unique Awards dinner, with specialized programming continuing through Sunday.
