[SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August, 2010] – The Digital Filmmaking & Video Production department at The Art Institute of California- San Francisco proudly presents the 2nd annual Virgins & Rejects Film Festival. The Virgins & Rejects Film Festival is open to all filmmakers and gives them the opportunity to showcase their work for the first time. Virgins are classified as never having submitted to a festival; Rejects are those who have submitted, but have been rejected by a festival.
The Virgins & Rejects Film Festival was created as an elective for the Digital Film and Video Production program at The Art Institute of California - San Francisco. Film Festival 101 provides the opportunity for students to create, curate, and host a film festival while learning the behind-the-scenes of the business.
The festival debuted last year at the historic Victoria Theater in San Francisco, California with a successful program of short media by filmmakers who had either never entered into a festival or had been rejected by previous festivals. The second annual Virgins & Rejects Film Festival is dedicated to providing a venue for similar emerging and cutting edge filmmakers to showcase their films for the very first time.
The Film Festival class at The Art Institute of California – San Francisco is currently seeking submissions for the Virgins & Rejects Film Festival. Submissions can be of any genre, and should range in length from 1-15 minutes. A full list of submission guidelines can be found at the official Virgins & Rejects website. Submissions must be received by September 13, 2010.
Once all of the submissions are in, the students in the Film Festival class will jury the entries. The chosen films will be screened at the Virgins & Rejects Film Festival held at the Roxie Theatre on Thursday, October 7th, 2010. Tickets are $5 for any student with any school I.D. and $8 for general admission.
