The Festival will showcase a wide range of film projects, including shorts, features, music videos, and documentaries created by students and independent filmmakers from throughout the world, with special emphasis given to those who live/lived, attend school, have local ties to, or work in Imperial County, Yuma and Mexicali. Filmmakers from around the globe are encouraged to submit! Special guests who have previously appeared at the festival include Editor/Producer George Folsey Jr, producer of "An American Werewolf in London" and Michael Jackson's Thriller, Max Arciniega, actor from "Breaking Bad," "Bosch," and "Better Call Saul," and Michael Lannan, creator and Executive Producer of the HBO series "Looking."
