Chagrin Documentary Film Festival

Chagrin Falls, Ohio / October 2-6, 2019 / chagrinfilmfest.org

For a small festival, Chagrin attracts a high number of premieres. In fact, 60 percent of the films in 2018 were premieres of some form, with 10 world premieres and one U.S. premiere. The festival prides itself on providing feedback on all submissions and had a record number of filmmakers take advantage of notes at last year’s festival. In all, 89 documentaries selected from 600 submissions competed for $16,000 in cash awards across 11 categories. Chagrin’s growth has attracted distributors, with representatives from Submarine Entertainment, The Film Collaborative, and Gravitas Ventures in attendance last year. Screened films picked up for distribution include Alexandria Bombach’s On Her Shoulders (Oscilloscope), and Nancy Schwartzman’s Roll Red Roll (Film Sprout).

      I can assure you that the Beaufort International Film Festival held each February in Beaufort, SC is well worth the entry fee. See the recap here -https://vimeo.com/321820933
