Call For Entries: 16th Annual Hollywood Film Festival ® and Hollywood Film Awards ® In the Spotlight this week is the HOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL (, celebrating its 16th season and acknowledged as one of Hollywood’s most exciting and anticipated film events. Hailed by “Daily Variety” as “the ultimate networking opportunity,” and “the first mandatory stop in the awards season” by “The New York Times,” Hollywood Film Festival presents filmmakers with a unique opportunity to showcase and network with the industry’s top executives and brightest stars.

In the last 9 years, Hollywood Film Festival has seen a total of 85 Oscar nominations and 32 Oscars given to films showcased at HFF and/or to the honorees of the Hollywood Film Awards, HFF’s companion event. Previous years have seen Festival finalists get distribution from HBO, Miramax, IFC, 7th Art Releasing, Indican, and Starz, among others.

Based in the heart of the film industry, HFF makes it easy for attending filmmakers to connect with agents, producers, distributors, and other top industry decision makers. The Festival receives coverage, both on and offline, by media outlets from around the world in cable and network television, online, and print. HFF also provides all exhibiting filmmakers with VIP Passes, granting access to premieres and screenings at the Festival, as well as the prestigious and star-studded Hollywood Awards Gala.

HFF’s mission is to bridge the gap between established Hollywood and the global creative community.

HFF success stories include director Craig Brewer (HUSTLE AND FLOW, BLACK SNAKE MOAN), who was discovered by the Festival with the World Premiere of his first film, POOR AND HUNGRY; director Robert DeFranco, who sold TELLING YOU to Miramax; and director Zoe Clarke Williams, who secured a directing job for an MGM film as a result of her participation at HFF. In addition, HFF award-winning documentarian Janine Hosking sold her documentary MY KHMER HEART to HBO while Diane Estelle Vicari had her film, SUGIHARA: CONSPIRACY OF KINDNESS, picked up by 7th Art Releasing.
