About the festival

If you had a great idea for a movie and you needed to hire a writer, actors, and a director to put it

all together, you would want to see samples of their work. That is precisely what short indie films

are all about. The films are "audition reels" for the people who made them. Virtually everyone

working on major TV shows or motion pictures began their careers working on short films...

usually working for free. That includes everyone from camera operators, to editors, to makeup

artists,  to stunt people. and more. The list of people wanting to "make movies" is long.

 

The 15 MINUTES OF FAME film festival screens short films made by aspiring filmmakers from

all over the U.S.   We have a panel of five judges who grade each film on a point system for its

camera work, editing, sound quality, acting, script, and directing.  Films with the highest points

become "Official Selections", and are included in our festival.  They also compete for awards in

numerous categories.

 

This is our 13th year and our 21st festival.   To date we have shown over 400 films.

 

What types of  films do we show?

Our competition includes Animated films, Documentariers, Movie Trailers,  Narratives,  Web series, and Commercials.  Genres include comedy, drama,  suspense, and adventure.  Please note that none of the films have been officially rated, and may contain mature themes not suitable for children.
