What is your Mountain?
Mountain Tales Film Festival is for storytellers from every walk of life who find themselves telling those stories through film. Although there will be multiple awards and laurels given out we hope this festival can be a place of comradery between filmmakers, not of competition.
We were once asked:
When you get to the mountain why are you there, to see or to be seen?
After forming our company 321 Films, which this film festival is a branch of,
we had to truly look at ourselves as we climbed that mountain and ask:
why are we here?
We know now, that we are here to see.
To see your stories, your perspectives.
To see what there is to be seen and to explore it.
To see your tales from that same mountain.
So now that you're here with us, are you here to be seen or are you here to see?
Our main festival is held in fall, but we are happy to have two other smaller installments of the Mountain Tales Film festival at Fanaticon in Dothan, Alabama and at the Pineywoods Arts Festival in Enterprise, Alabama.
Each has it own submission period and some films may be chosen to screen in multiple locations through ought the year.
In 2020 we have decided to take our festival into the digital world
and have a completely virtual festival experience!
Tickets are on sale below at the website where we will be hosting both nights of the event.
