What is studio fest?

Studio Fest is an intimate film festival with a unique award. The winner will make their first feature film, funded by the submission fees gained during the application process. It is the first ever festival/feature crowd sourced combo.

The event will take place over three days in September 2018 in the Catskills mountains of Phoenicia , NY. 

Friday night we will gather for a welcome party.

Saturday night 5 short films will screen.

Sunday the top winner will be announced and we will begin our journey to making our first feature. 

During the day we will explore the local area, eat icecream, take a bike ride or a hike to the Katerskills waterfalls of the Hudson Valley all while getting to know you , the filmmaker. 

*There will also be a screenwriting competition component to Studio Fest. Stay tuned for announcements and updates.
