100 Words Film Festival

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.

“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead. ” Mark Twain

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.

“A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.” David Mamet

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.

“100 Words is the visual Twitter.” Kevin Roberts, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi

Our inaugural event launches November 4-5 2016 at the McGlohon Theater in uptown Charlotte. The festival will present exclusive premieres, in every genre, from filmmakers around the world, ranging from Academy Award nominated directors to talented student filmmakers.

We hope you will join us in participating in the 100 WORDS FILM FESTIVAL.
