OPAC’s Sight + Sound Film Festival Announces Call for Submissions
Oxnard, CA – The Sight + Sound Film Festival is accepting film submissions now through June 12 for its second annual event to be held September 30 – October 2, 2022 at select venues in Historic Downtown Oxnard. The event is a joint effort between OPAC, the Film, Television, and Electronic Media program at Oxnard College and Downtown Oxnard.
Filmmakers of all levels may submit works in the following categories: Narrative Features and Shorts, Documentary Features and Shorts, Romantic Comedy, Dramatic, Thriller/Sci-Fi, Films produced in Oxnard/Ventura County and by local filmmakers, Student films, Music Videos, ASMR, and Animations.
“Our commitment is to collaboration, unity, diversity and giving voice to artists and issues around the world and to promote awareness and healing as we endeavor to present the best possible cinematic works, speakers and workshops by artists locally, regionally and even internationally” said Carolyn Merino Mullin, festival director.
Organizers, storytellers, and fans are all excited for the return of the festival to share in a post-COVID celebration of Ventura County’s creative community. The annual festival premiered in 2019 to large audiences and positive media coverage but was postponed due to the pandemic. This year’s event is anticipated to draw even more attention, so filmmakers are encouraged to submit entries early. The festival centers the senses – sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell – through film, food, interactive activities, workshops, and entertainment.
