Central Film Festival 2017

Central Film Festival is one of the only student-led, High School film festivals in the country, hosted in beautiful downtown Springfield Missouri. 

For the upcoming 2017 festival, we are offering attendees more than ever, such as on-site contests, hotel partnerships for out of town festival-goers, keynote speakers, screenings at Springfield's arthouse cinema--The Moxie--as well as multiple other venues for watching films and a red carpet awards ceremony at the historic Fox Theatre downtown.

Additionally, attendees can continue to enjoy the characteristics that have always made the festival unique, like industry-professional judging, written critiques for the students, and free film submissions (see submission dates to avoid late fees).
