True West Cinema Festival is preparing for their second annual film extravaganza dedicated to independently produced feature and short subject films focusing on our mythical region: the West. True West welcomes entries of all genres, not western genre films exclusively. Filmmakers from the following states are accepted: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. So what defines True West? If you are a filmmaker from the West, shooting in the West or writing about the West, or in some other way bound to the West, submit your work and be a part of this growing regional festival.
The 2005 festival takes place August 25-28, though the submission deadline for films is June 30, 2005. For more information and to submit your film, visit www.truewestcinema.org for submission guidelines and applications.
