100 Words Film Festival

Nov 4 - 5, 2016 McGlohon Theater

The 100 Words Film Festival celebrates concise, cinematic storytelling. Each film must deliver a compelling tale using exactly 100 words, challenging filmmakers to focus on the essence of the story. Given this parameter, the 100 Words concept democratizes filmmaking by making entry financially possible for all participants.

Screenwriting is the only original process in filmmaking. Everything else is interpretation. Yet despite its foundational importance, we meet young and new filmmakers every day who amaze us with their technical skills but lag in their storytelling ability.

Mamet may be a bit extreme, but has any director ever called for more words? The art of crafting an evocative film lies in being pithy. 100 words are just enough for a narrative to work. The 100 Words Film Festival is a celebration of the fastest-growing, most exciting category of filmmaking in its purest form – the short.

The 3rd Annual 100 Words Film Festival will be on November 4th and 5th at the McGlohon Theater in Charlotte, NC. The festival will present exclusive premieres, in every genre, from filmmakers around the world, ranging from Academy Award nominated directors to talented student filmmakers.
