Film Festival

Faith in Film is a boutique film festival and screenwriting competition that takes place over the course of two days in historic downtown Tucson. 

Our mission is to forge a film festival and screenwriting competition that will launch the careers of faith based writers and filmmakers and facilitate established artists in transitioning into faith based films; and to introduce faith based films to mass audiences, ultimately, giving them the same multi platform release schedules and revenue streams that traditional studio films and high end independent films enjoy; and to inspire, showcase, support, and develop writers and filmmakers of all faith’s to make great faith based films that leave others touched, moved and inspired; and filmmakers and distributors empowered to make and distribute more films with an element of faith.  

Our film festival takes place over the course of two days and accepts feature length films up to 110 minutes in length and short films (up to 40 minutes in length) in several categories. It is a celebration of filmmaking that allows artists and industry professionals at all levels to come, network, and showcase their work. For many filmmakers it will be the first time anyone has seen their work on the silver screen. 

We don't showcase any films online, but we are happy to link to any and all winning films.

Film Festival Awards are given to filmmakers in several categories and the director behind the festival's "Best of the Fest" film will be awarded with introductions to three separate literary managers and or development executives.

A quick note about our judges. A lot of festivals and screenwriting competitions like to brag about having celebrity judges or industry judges. We do not. As when you look behind the curtain of those competitions you quickly see that their "industry judges" are only reading the top 5 scripts or top 5 films. Our judges are simply artists and writers; filmmakers and film lovers. We love film and we have excellent taste, but we do not pretend to be star makers. We introduce our winners to top industry professionals, but we do not pretend to be studio executives in any way shape or form.
