Ziegfeld Follies Film Festival

The Ziegfeld Follies Film Festival is our way of saying “Yes.. AND!” to the creativity behind the film making process. We aim to do this with our one-of-a-kind “Genre Lottery”! At our kick off event on Thursday 9/26 at 7:30pm, Teams will be given the chance to randomly draw from 4 film element categories that MUST be incorporated in each 5-minute-or-less film: 

- GENRE, 

- a random PROP, 

- a unique LINE of dialogue, and... 

- a WILD CARD element.  

Filmmakers will then be given until noon on Sunday 9/29 to submit their Films. Later that night, we will come together for a special Black Tie screening and awards ceremony.
