Mammoth Lakes Film Festival 

Mammoth Lakes, California / May 23-27, 2018 / mammothlakesfilmfestival.com /

Festival families form fast at this Sierra Nevada mountain town’s cinematic summit—due in large part to the fact that all attending moviemakers are lodged under one roof for the duration. Cameras (courtesy of RED and Panavision) and cash prizes abound, and MLFF’s addition of a fully-staffed PR agency to handle all press, plus its increased efforts to rope in more influential bloggers and YouTube stars, prove that Festival Director Shira Dubrovner’s commitment to “treat our moviemakers like kings and queens” isn’t fading anytime soon.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
