Feature film festival


MISSION & OBJECTIVE
To encourage the production of media in both the independent and professional market that portray the human race in a positive light, and to applaud original works that redefine media through innovation, creativity and sensitivity that both enlightens and educates audiences from around the world.

INTRODUCTION
The festival considers entries of ALL GENRES from shorts to full-length features, and is held in Southern Utah, nearby Zion National Park and Cedar Breaks National Monument. The location is ideal for the vacation-seeking filmmaker. It is an artist's retreat for film, cuisine, parties, and workshops with approachable professional people. This emerging festival is held each November in Festival City.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The International Red Rock Film Festival. The Red Rock Film Festival was formed in 2007 in Southern Utah, and quickly became a internationally recognized festival with 6,000 attendees in 2008. It made MovieMaker Magazine's list of "Top Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" in both 2009 and 2013.

DEMOCRATIC FILM SELECTION
All films are watched by a previewing committee and scored in Directing, Screenplay, Acting/Talent, Production Values and Post-Production Values. Local or international, friend or stranger, pretty or funky, famous or not: all films are given equal treatment and go through the same democratic film selection.

DEMOGRAPHIC
The demographic is well educated, consisting mostly of empty-nesters, college students and seniors. Other festivals that have accepted more than two of our films have been SXSW, Sundance, Austin Film Festival, Chicago International Movies and Music Festival, Cinequest, Cucalorus Film Festival, Darklight, Florida Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Galway Film Festival, Mammoth Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Reel Rock Film Tour, SIGGRAPH, Sedona International Film Festival, True/False Film Festival, and others.

GENRE
All genres are considered. Although documentaries have been a predominate focus at the Red Rock Film Festival, festival audience often compliment the variety and diversity of films selected for the festival in Utah. Animation, arts, children, comedy, documentary, drama, experimental, fiction, narrative, romance, sports, student, horror, suspense, mystery, musical, music videos, war themes, women's issues, family, and humanitarian films are all taken into consideration. Cultural diversity is also a highlight at the festival; American, Indian, African, Islander, European, Asian, Latino, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Spiritual, Yogi, Hindu, and other philosophical, governmental, historical, and artistic cultures are to be explored.

COMPETITION:
All genres are considered including animation, documentary, experimental, fiction, music video and student-made films. The festival has several categories of competition, including unique subcategories of featurette and short-short.
The Program Directors may also select additional categories at their own discretion, depending on how many qualified entries are received.

ALL FILM DESERVES A HOME
One common question we ask when previewing films is "where do we place them?" We expect some films would be great to release to the theaters, others for television, some for the classroom, for our film series. Of course, we also look for films that would make a great premiere at our festival. To encourage the independent spirit, Red Rock strives to find a home for all films that qualify in competition. This gives the filmmaker a chance to give their work exposure even if they may not make the festival finals. The festival also hosts a mini-film market, special screenings throughout the year plus makes recommendations to other festivals.

FILM MARKET
The Red Film Market is a small section at the festival where filmmakers and other industry professionals can view films on their own in the festival library or in special industry screenings given to select finalists and other favorites from the festival.
