2016 Filmily Fest
Short for Film Family, this festival seeks to unite the Hampton Roads film industry by creating a film festival that is about collaboration not competition.
Teams are provided with six still photos with each photo belonging to a category; tone, character, relationship, the unexpected, obstacle and visual element. These categories are key elements that make a good story. How the story is presented in the film is up to the artist.
Teams have one week to write their script, two weeks to shoot and edit their film and one additional week for a Director's Cut version.
Teams receive feedback on their script and edit by their peers on how to make their film better. Participating filmmakers judge each film and choose the best film.
This year, 12 teams will be screening the world premiere of their short films in an evening designed to celebrate local film. An awards ceremony will immediately follow the screening, and food and alcohol will be provided at discounted cost. Alcohol sales will help benefit Tidewater Arts Outreach.
Filmily Fest was conceptualized by Jon and Teviya Abrahams, owners of Jpixx, an international award winning video-led digital agency specializing in brand entertainment. They have received awards in both film and advertising, bringing a distinct vision to every project, while continuing to expand their reach to clients and audiences around Hampton Roads and the world.
Filmily Fest would like to thank the following supporters:
Tidewater Keepsake Jewelers
