Clarksville Film Festival

Can you make an awesome film? Do you animate or use stop motion? We are looking for all types of film creators, beginners to experienced. From February 5-7, all teams will have 52 hours to create a 4-7 minute film. Once submitted, your work will be judged by a panel of experts in the film industry, then shown on the big screen at the Roxy Regional Theatre in downtown Clarksville. Cash prizes will be awarded.
