We think a film festival should celebrate the art and craft of filmmaking and not worry about anything else... Thatís why we created the Beverly Film Festival. Whatever genre you prefer, the films youíll see here are going to be the ones that execute the fundamentals of good storytelling, and do it in a way that feels fresh and authentic. We want to pay tribute to originality and creativity in all genres.
The second annual Beverly Film Festival will return in August of 2014 on Bostonís North Shore in the quaint seaside community of Beverly, MA. The Beverly FIlm Festival accepts Student films, Short films, Features and, for the 2014 festival, we'll also be accepting screenplays.
Various prizes will be awarded throughout the festival including a $500 (USD) cash prize for Best Feature Film, a $250 (USD) cash prize for Best Short Film and a $250 (USD) cash prize for best screenplay.
