call for submissions from the rural

posted January 23, 2017

Rural Route Film Festival has opened for submissions for the 2017 festival. The 13th annual premier will be in New York City this summer and the organization is looking for stories from the steppes, the fields, the desert and beyond.

Whether it be a fictional backpacking drama set in the Peruvian Andes, a personal/experimental work about life in a Kazakh village, or a documentary about an organic, Appalachian turnip farm, our mission is to screen work about rare people and cultures normally overlooked by the mainstream media.  Our content consists of top quality, cutting edge contemporary and archival work from sources both local and far, far away.

So if you’ve been working on a special something, or maybe looking for incentive to get a new film project started, here’s a nice carrot for ya!

And if your not making movies, well you can bring the festival to your hometown, school, or community event! Check out this past years festival reel for more info.
