MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of FirstGlance is to provide a quality curated, competitive film festival, for professional, first-time and student film makers from around the world and to present, award and champion indie films to audiences who crave original ideas and voices in film making.
MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
In addition to its annual Los Angeles festival, FirstGlance hosts an annual festival in Philadelphia since 1996. FirstGlance programs a month-long online short film competition for content unable to be programmed in the festival, with prizes valued at over $2,000 and the opportunity to premiere at its sister festival in Philadelphia. FirstGlance has the most active social media of any film festival online and reaches millions of online users daily to assist filmmakers in finding new audiences and engagement to build their fan base and followers.
Features, documentaries, shorts, web series pilots, music videos, and student films are now being accepted for consideration – qualify your project today!
