Regional filmmakers wanted for Hwy 61 Film Festival

Pine City’s Highway 61 Film Festival is eagerly awaiting submissions from regional filmmakers now through July 1.
As the festival heads into its seventh year, organizers are excited to see what amazing films will come from the imaginations of local, state, national and international filmmakers.
Submissions may include short (less than 40 minutes) and feature films. Categories include: Drama, Comedy, Action/Horror, Documentary, Animation and “Made in Minnesota,” for films actually shot, in whole or part, in this great state. A special spot is reserved for Student Short films made by students age 18 or younger.
Submitted films are reviewed by judges, and cash prizes awarded to the top film in each category: $100 for features, $50 for short films, including a $50 prize for the top Student Short film.
Early submission fees (by June 15) are $5 for short films and $10 per feature film. Late submission fees (by July 1) are $10 for short films and $20 per feature film submission. All Made in Minnesota films are $1 and Student Short films (age 18 and under) are free to submit.
Last year hundreds of films were submitted to the Highway 61 Film Festival through FilmFreeway.com (an online independent film festival submission service), and the very best were featured at the October festival.
The festival will be held Oct. 5, 6, 7 and 8 in Pine City, with screenings at Pine Technical & Community College, Pine City’s Pizza Pub, the North West Company Fur Post, and Pine Center for the Arts.
