With so many "international" film festivals out there, we decided it was high time to have a festival that catered to regional talent, with networking and learning opportunities for filmmakers. This is why we started the Sandpoint Radius Film Festival. We encourage film submissions from within a 400-mile radius around Sandpoint, Idaho.
As filmmakers, we are interested in networking with other filmmakers and talking about our successes and failures. At most "international" film festivals, talented local filmmakers are competing with large state sponsored big budget films, leaving little room in the schedule for local filmmakers to show and get feedback on their important works.
