This year, the festival is implementing a new focus for its feature competition section.
In short, the festival will seek to support films and filmmakers that are interested in pursuing new, non-traditional distribution strategies for their films.
In promoting this new direction, we have developed the following short statement: There is much to be said about the rapidly changing world of film distribution and in 2011 the LSIFF will officially join the conversation. Program details, partners, and participants will be announced soon. Submissions are open now.
