About this project
The Alphabet City Dolly Film Festival is about offering a stage for new and young production companies to showcase their work.
The goal is to give these directors and production companies a platform that will allow them to have access to large distribution,prospective employers, and their peers. The possibilities for networking will be one source of interest for many.
Authorized Dealer Films' goal with the Alphabet City Dolly Film Festival is to bring together independent directors and new production companies to screen their work for peers and prospective employers alike. This festival embodies the same values as the companies that will be exhibited. Just like the companies presented, ABCD Film Festival represents the spirit of starting something truly original.
Alphabet City Dolly Film Festival is bringing together independent directors and new production companies to screen their work in front of peers and prospective employers alike. Just like the people and companies presenting, we represent working hard from the ground up to make something spectacular. This is not the festival for those who are simply looking for the means to an end; we’re not corporate and we’re not generic. This is the festival for people who put their heart and souls into their projects, refusing to let the elements against them stop them from filming.
3 days in August: At its core, the ABCDF Festival is a bar crawl in the Alphabet City region of the Manhattan's East Village. Guests are able to walk from bar to bar to enjoy this year's top young and truly independent filmmakers. After the festival there is an award ceremony to highlight the most talented of submissions and the guests are able to elect the the winner for the viewer's choice awards via mobile voting.
We also have events in the months leading up to the festival to foster communication between filmmakers, demo new equipment and generally network with like minded individuals.
The revolutionary artistic intuition that etched the years like 1969, 1982 and 1988 in the minds of so many people across generations is afoot; a maturing "generation y" is using technology to its full potential and to influence the next "New Wave". Be on the look out for Authorized Dealer Films, specializing in making every genre in film feel like intuitively keen art. Just a heads up! The revolution is in session for about 20 or 30 years give or take a few...
Risks and challenges
The first Alphabet City Dolly Film Festival was a great success. All guests thoroughly joined the unique experience we offered. My team and I have successfully gathered valuable data to improve on this year's experience as a whole.
This year's festival will benefit tremendously; in many ways the risks and challenges have already been overcome in attempting that first festival and my team and I are confident that post funding the Alphabet City Dolly Film Festival will have a long and eventful run.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
