Due to circumstances beyond our control, the dates for our festival have been pushed back until the last week of September, 2019. Our venue for the last 13 years—since our festival began—told us after last season they didn’t want us back. Since then, we’ve been working hard to find a new home. We had originally planned to hold the fest in May, but scheduling conflicts have moved us to September. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this might cause for any of you.
On the bright side, we’ve modified our entry deadlines on FilmFreeway to reflect the new dates, so now our filmmakers and writers have more time to enter! We haven’t been able to update our Withoutabox listing yet, but will do so as soon as possible.
We’re very excited about the upcoming season! We’ve already seen some incredible films from the submissions so far and are looking forward to more. As always, we are committed to bringing the best of independent film to Huntington Beach.
Thank you all for your support!
