Great Lakes Christian Film Festival
The Great Lakes Christian Film Festival was established in 2014 by Shawn Greene, in Buffalo, New York. The festival was designed to gather Filmmakers, Screenwriters, Playwright, Directors, Editors, Actors/Actress, Cinematographers, Casting Directors, Crew Members, etc.
Submissions began in November 2014 through May 2015 for our first season. Over 90 films were submitted the first year and were narrowed down to just over 50. The first GLCFF was at the Bread of Life Church in South Buffalo, New York from August 2015.
We are a CHRISTIAN Film Festival focused on spotlighting the best faith-based submissions every year. What does that mean? For starters, this is a festival for Christian Filmmakers or anyone looking to submit a Christian-themed film. The target audience is for the WHOLE family, Grandma and Junior alike. Some projects, such as Passion of the Christ, might be too graphic or unsuitable for children under 14 years old.
If you plan to submit a project, we suggest you please give us warning as to the content of the film so we can categorize it differently than a general audience rating. This does not guarantee it will be selected, but it does give us a reference point. The idea is to provide indie Christian Filmmakers an outlet and possible success full-time, as well as, opportunities for veteran movie industry folks to network, mentor, and inspire the next generation film stars and moguls.
