Why another film festival?

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. All films eligible for submission must come from within a 160 mile radius around Sandpoint, Idaho. No exceptions. See map to determine your eligibility.

Why limit submissions based on a specific region?

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.

What makes Sandpoint Radius Film Festival different?

There will be cash prizes and trophies for the top four films. Those prize amounts will vary depending on how many submissions and sponsors we have.

Each film submitted will receive two tickets ($30 value) to attend the 2-day film festival in Sandpoint, Idaho regardless of if your film is chosen as a finalist.

It costs money to put on a film festival and we know that budgets are always tight, but in order to have cash prizes for the top films and pay our expenses, we need to charge a submission fee. Our submission fee is between $20-$35. Submit your film early and save by following this link to FilmFreeway.
