Beneath the Earth Film Fest

May 17, 2011

I am taking part this year as a jury member in this new film festival concept – an online only where the jury is made up of peers – indie filmmakers and online reviewers. The festival is in its second year and is a great concept to highlight new works.

As things get moving this fall, I will keep you posted on the ins and outs of the jury process and the films we are seeing.

From the website: Beneath the Earth is an online film festival created out of the idea that the Internet has given us new power to influence what content gets consumed and who gets noticed. We’re already seeing it happen in music where musicians are discovered through the followings they create online. And now we’d like to see it happen for film and use this new-found power to shine the light on the little guy who’s created something beautiful but hasn’t been able to cut through the red Hollywood tape.
