“Life Fest calls on everyone interested in telling a compelling story that highlights the intrinsic value of human life to participate in our third annual festival,” said Life Fest Director Brian Johnston. “Filmmakers have a unique voice and powerful tools at their disposal to spread a tremendous message.”
Life Fest is unique not only in its theme, but through this, our international iteration, Life Fest is the first, “ongoing” Film Festival. In anticipation of the event’s third annual presentation in May, earlier this month there was an open registration for the festival’s 5×5 Filmmaker Challenge. It challenges them to produce a five-minute short reinforcing the profound significance of every human life.
Entries which meet all of the requirements will be screened during the Life Fest Film Festival May 9-12, 2013 in Los Angeles and winning filmmakers will have the opportunity to network with some of Hollywood’s leading insiders, including producers, directors, and distributors. Some of the Category Awards include: Best Director, Best Picture, Best Acting, Best Editing, Audience Favorite, Best Use of Props and Lines, among others.
From Director Rupert-Anthony Ortiz, comes a touching story about a boy, his older brother and how a lesson in soccer turns into an incredible lesson in life. The film screened as an Official Selection at the Hill Country Film Festival and now is an Official Selection of the Life Fest Film Festival.
