September 1 – A new year, a new 72 Film Fest!
Every year is a different theme, and this year is no different. The theme for 2021 is “The Interpretation and Recreation of Dreams”. What exactly will be asked of each filmmaker will be kept a secret until the online launch party on September 23. Will filmmakers choose to tell a real story, a dream landscape or a nightmare?
During the weekend of September 23-26, teams from Frederick and beyond (teams from across the United States are participating) will spend their weekends writing, shooting, editing and shooting their films. All films will premiere at the Weinberg Center with an online follow-up screening over the weekend of October 8-10.
More than 550 films have been created in the festival’s first 15 years, and 72 Fest expects around 50 teams to participate in 2021.
Friends, family and neighbors from across the region are welcome to enter. The 72 Film Fest strives to maintain a creative atmosphere for students, amateurs and professional filmmakers.
