Receiving an overwhelming number of submissions from all over the world, the 3rd Annual Cutting Edge International Film Festival shall Showcase the best filmmakers and their films of the 2017 season.

Celebrating film as a dynamic and transcending art form, our festival not only sought out, but found the highest caliber of films that the world had to offer this season, and will be presenting a world of stories to Indie Film lovers everywhere.

Awarding outstanding filmmakers and their work with Best of Genre Awards, along with an Audience Award, the Cutting Edge International Film Festival boldly supports visionary Filmmakers while advancing the art form of “Film” with remarkable cinematic technologies and experiences, the Cutting Edge International Film Festival brings all the new technologies to bear, and offers an event for the next step in film festival evolution.

The 3rd Annual Cutting Edge International Film Festival shall be screening all films of all lengths and genres including Narrative, Documentary, Experimental, Religious/Spiritual, Animation, Comedy, Horror, with Horror sub-genres that include Supernatural, Thrillers, Wicken, Magical, Slashers, Science Fiction, Suspense, Horror Documentary, Horror Animation and all genres of Music Videos and LGBT films for our 2017 festival.

We strongly suggest that every Filmmaker visit their film’s synopsis page to be sure that all of the information contained on it is correct.  If there are any errors, please contact us detailing the name of your film and the correct information, and we will make the changes immediately.

As soon as the Virtual Theatre screenings open, we also strongly encourage you to visit your film’s virtual screening room to ensure that you are happy with the presentation of your film.

In addition to the Best of genre Awards that our Festival offers, each year our Festival presents an Audience Award that is chosen by virtual attendees of our festival.  Each attendee has the opportunity to watch as many films as each may like, and to cast ONLY one vote for what that attendee feels is most deserving of the 2017 CEIFF Audience Award.

To help ensure that your film is among those nominated or selected as the Award Winner in this category we encourage you to not only vote for your own film, but for you to encourage your cast, crew, and friends and family to vote for your film as well. Please keep in mind that the film with the most audience votes will be chosen as the winner of this award.

Please remember, and most importantly, vote for your own film for the Audience Choice Award, as every unique vote counts, and if you don’t vote for your own film, how can anyone expect it to earn a Nomination or Award.

Please also make a special effort to promote your film throughout all of your social media, cast and crew list, email marketing lists, and every other avenue at your disposal so that your film will have the best opportunity to earn its place as either the Audience Award winner, or to be listed among the list of the runners-up.

The Cutting Edge Film Festival is opening the doors and tearing down the walls between independent films, and the audiences who love them so much, allowing the world to share in their power and passion.
