We are?

Redwood Film Festival is a film competition, explicitly designed for the filmmaker who’s tired of being overlooked by all the other festivals that seem to cater only to big-budget productions. Every artist hopes to one day emerge from the underground scene and share their talents with the masses. Hopefully, the showcase platform we provide will help facilitate that dream. We’re excited to display a wide range of works from all genres that will have industry pros, filmmakers and filmgoers buzzing.


Every Season our film selection members select the best films. All selected films consider as official selection entries out of official selection entries our jury will choose the best movies through private screening recognize as the winner of the season. 


Our aim is to inspire, motivate and award the truly innovative and artistic geniuses of our time.
