B-MOVIE FESTIVAL CELEBRATES LOW-BUDGET FILMS

Filmmakers seeking to carry on the rich tradition of the B-Movies are being invited to submit their features and short films to the second annual B-Movie Film Festival. This new celebration will be held in Syracuse, NY, with a tentative schedule of August 26-27 at a venue to be announced later.
The festival defines a “B-Movie” as a low-budget film which provides a level of entertainment and/or artistic value which rivals or surpasses big-budget mainstream pictures. Productions shot on either film or video will be considered. All genres are welcome for consideration, including short subjects and documentaries, and the festival would prefer films with a defined narrative versus free-form experimental work.
The top films at the festival will receive the Killer-B Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Foreign Film and other categories. The awards will be presented in a special ceremony hosted by a celebrity of this genre. All films submitted for the festival will also be reviewed by a celebrity panel for the Killer-B Awards and for possible theatrical and home video release via a leading distributor of independent productions.
The B-Movie Film Festival will also coincide with the announcement of the third annual inductions into the B-Movie Hall of Fame, an online pantheon honoring the classics and artists of this celebrated celluloid orbit.
Last year’s B-Movie Film Festival, hosted by popular B-Star Debbie Rochon, brought over 100 entries from around the world, with the top prize going to the British vampire thriller “Razor Blade Smile.”
