Contrast Film Festival

Contrast Film Festival

Thursday, 17 May 2018 until Sunday, 20 May 2018

CONTRAST Film Festival is 3 days of film & events focused on presenting diverse, divergent, and subversive identities and perspectives through unique and forward thinking filmmaking. With a focus on experimental, genre, music video, and modern narrative filmmaking, CONTRAST truly is ‘strikingly different’. Coming to the Austin Film Society Cinema in May 2018.

All works entered must be created with female identifying, queer/lgbtq, or persons of color in key creative roles (director, writer, producer) and/or contain themes relevant to those communities. We accept narrative, experimental, music video, and genre works.
