INTERNATIONAL FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL

MARCH 21-25, 2012

EXTENDED DEADLINE IS NOW JANUARY 13, 2012

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY HANUKKAH, AND A MERRY KWANZAA

Could December be any busier with celebrations?

The International Family Film Festival (IFFF) has again extended the Extended Deadline for film and screenplay submissions to January 13, 2012.

“A large number of filmmakers and writers have expressed interest in submitting their newest projects to the IFFF and simply need the extra month coming out of the holidays,” said IFFF film programmer and co-founder, Patte Dee McKee. “Both the executive staff and film jury agree that by extending the deadline, a more diverse and robust family film offering will be presented come next March.”

As a reminder to support the IFFF, please check out the Store on the IFFF website for gift ideas, AND the eBay auction for the 2012 Alaska Fisherman’s trip that is now active. It’s a fantastic experience at a great value and it too, helps support the IFFF.

..............


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

If you are interested to volunteer for the IFFF, please contact our office and join our growing family of family film enthusiasts and professionals. You choose your hours, and IFFF needs greeters, ticket takers, ushers, reception staff and individuals that are familiar with social networking and handling computer projects.

............


DONATE NOW

Please consider making a tax-deductible, end-of-the-year gift to the International Family Film Festival this year. We have different membership opportunities available and need your continued support to offer this annual celebration of family films, screenplays, panels and workshops.

From the entire IFFF staff and Board, Happy Holidays to all!
