Proceeds Benefit the Roslyn Fire Company
 
Attention Filmmakers: We are now accepting submissions for the 9th Annual Roslyn Film Festival!
It's that time of year again! The Roslyn Film Festival Committee is once again seeking your original short film submissions for screening during our 9th Annual Roslyn Film Festival. Regardless of your experience as a filmmaker—pro, semi-pro, amateur, or hobbyist—the Roslyn Film Festival is one of our community's most popular events, and a great way to get your work seen by a live audience. We encourage you to submit your film today!

This year's screening will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The early entry fee is only $15 for submissions received by February 1, 2015. (The standard entry fee is $25 for all films submitted from Feb 2 until March 1, 2015.) Proceeds from the entry fees, ticket cost, and sales of raffle tickets and concessions at the event benefit the Roslyn Volunteer Fire Department.

All submitted films will be viewed by a selection committee, and films selected for screening will be voted on by the audience, with prizes for the top 3 audience favorites.

We looking forward to seeing your film, and hopefully seeing you as well at this year's event!

Sincerely,
Roslyn Film Festival Committee

Please help us spread the word about this great event!

Special Thanks From Abington Commissioner Lori Schreiber
The Roslyn Film Festival began in 2007 and has been one of the most popular and successful events in our community.  For those of you who might have missed it this time around, you’ll have to watch for it next time.  Everyone who attends has a great time watching quality films, and then playing film critic by choosing the winning entries.

I want to thank all of the filmmakers who entered their short films into the contests for the last seven years.  Several of them also attended the festival, driving in from outside our region, and were willing to answer questions about their productions while we counted ballots to choose the winners.

Adding community-building events is a very important and exciting part to the revitalization of Roslyn. Again, I want to thank everyone who makes our annual Roslyn Film Festival a huge success every year, and am looking forward to another great sequel in 2014!

Sincerely,
Lori Schreiber
