The Fairhope Film Festival brings you the 'Best of the Best'!
Our festival's Selection Committee is hard at work hand-selecting an amazing lineup of award-winning films for the 2013 Fairhope Film Festival. Candidates for inclusion must have won an award from another film festival in 2012 or 2013. And because our choices may include winners from film fests that haven't even happened yet, we are keeping committed selections under wraps...
BUT, if you'd like to get a feel for the kind of movies that will populate the Fairhope Film Festival venues, click here to check out our Film Festival Timeline. This slick interactive timeline highlights many of the world's best film festivals, showing you when they take place, linking you to the festival information, and more. You can be guaranteed that our festival will be filled with films that have nabbed top honors at some of these other major, internationally recognized festivals.
The Fairhope Film Fest's Executive Director, Mary Riser, programmed and directed the 'Fairhope Film Series' for almost 15 years, presenting an eclectic, artistic array of cinematic masterpieces for the local community at one of our festival's primary venues. You can view the entire list of films screened throughout the series here. Mary's passion for films is the driving force behind our selection process, insuring that every festival venue will be filled with opportunities to see some of the best work in filmmaking today.
Maybe you've found yourself longing to immerse yourself in the excitement and creative energy swirling around a major film festival--films brimming with top-notch direction, acting, cinematography, and screenwriting...
