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
The 2017 100 Words Film Festival will be held November 3-4 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.
