The 3 Rivers Film Festival is a combined effort between Cinema Center and PBS39 to highlight and celebrate the visual arts - specifically local amateur talent working with film and video.
This event is free, with no submission fees and no entrance cost to the screenings. It is an official part of Fort Wayne's Three Rivers Festival.
The 8pm premier on July 15th was standing room only! Thanks to everyone that made the Film Festival a success. The audience in attendance at both the 8pm and 10pm screenings had the opportunity to vote for what they thought were the best 3 submissions, with an "Audience Choice," award of $150 for the piece with the most votes. The tally was quite close, with every submission getting multiple votes. Here are the results;
Winner: The Gift of Hope Category: Drama Submitter: Lance Clark
2nd Runner Up: Neighbirds Category: Animation Submitter: Thong Nguyen
3rd Runner Up: Out from Darkness Category: Music Video Submitter: David Page
Congrats to Lance Clark and his crew!
