Rejected by Other Festivals, Minnesota Filmmaker Starts His Own

A sure-fire indication that the CrazyFlix Film Fest was started by someone both familiar and frustrated with the festival routine is the entry fee. It's a mere ten bucks.

The event is set for July 10th in Long Prairie, Minnesota. Founder Andrew Ring is encouraging any and all who have made a family-friendly short of 30 minutes or less to submit by June 30th.

There's another great twist to this new festival. It will be held at one of the few still-standing Minnesota drive-ins. As Ring recently explained to the St. Cloud Times, he was finally able to move forward at the Long Drive-In Theatre after the site's projection equipment was upgraded to digital.

The inaugural event's Grand Prize is a two-way speaker system with subwoofer and $30 in cash. Selected films will be screened from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday July 10th and awards presented July 11th from 5:30 p.m to 6:00 p.m.
