The FreeStyle Life Kicks Off The 2013 Film Exhibition
The FreeStyle Life strives to take indie above ground and will continue to do so in the 2013 FreeStyle Life Film Exhibition, which will start taking submissions July 10th!
July 6, 2012 (Newswire.com) - In its continuing efforts to push the boundaries of independent film distribution, The FreeStyle Life is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual FreeStyle Life Film Exhibition. The online video platform will begin accepting submissions for its 2013 Film Exhibition beginning July 10th and will continue taking entries until the end of 2012. Submissions will be accepted into four categories: narrative feature films, documentaries, short films, and student films.
Unlike the restrictions associated with traditional film festivals, whether it be travel, expense, or accessibility, The FreeStyle Life aims to democratize the festival experience by delivering it to the palm of one's hand. Every Official Selection of The FreeStyle Life Film Exhibition will be available for instant streaming on most Internet capable devices. In addition to this accessibility, The FreeStyle Life is taking advantage of its social media presence where viewers will be able to vote for their favorite films and filmmakers via their preferred social networks.
The 2012 FreeStyle Life Film Exhibition was an enormous success. Selected films spanned over 10 countries, ranging from Russia to Peru. Winners included Derek Frey's short comedy The Ballad of Sandeep, Sarita Siegel's documentary Fire Burn Babylon and Rosario GarcÃa-Montero's Peruvian film Las Malas Intenciones.
The FreeStyle Life Founder Tommy Swanhaus said, "The goal of The FreeStyle Life Film Exhibition is to bring international awareness to independent filmmakers, expand the horizons of our audiences, and to tear down the barriers of film distribution."
Last year's film exhibition affirmed this ideal, as the 2012 Exhibition was able to generate enough online traffic to place it among the top 10 film festival destinations in the world. The FreeStyle Life looks to build upon the foundation placed in 2012 and to continue to pave a new path for independent film in 2013.
