Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Parks and Recreation’s Clarksville Film Festival kicked off Friday, February 21st, 2020 when 11 teams of filmmakers gathered at Liberty Park’s Freedom Point to hear the competition rules and select movie genres.
What happened next was 52 hours of scripting, filming, editing — and very little sleep — as teams raced to submit their films by the deadline.
Now those 11 films will be shown from 5:00pm-7:00pm on March 28th at the Roxy Regional Theatre. The public is invited.
“The filmmakers were so wonderful,” said Maggie Houts, Event Planning Specialist at Clarksville Parks and Recreation. “They were all engaged and enthusiastic about the whole process. We’re excited to present these films at the Roxy and present awards for all their hard work.”
The films will be judged by a panel of three experts.
- Steve Farkas, executive producer, Vistamax Productions.
- Erik Anderson, television editor.
- Karen Buillis, video production professor at Austin Peay State University.
Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three films, and nine other awards in various categories will be presented.
Tickets for the screening are $7.00 and can be purchased through clarksvilleparksrec.com or at the door beginning at 4:00pm March 28th.
The Roxy Regional Theatre is located at 100 Franklin Street in Historic Downtown Clarksville.
The Clarksville Film Festival presenting sponsor is CDE Lightband.
