We accept films exclusively through Film Freeway.
I am an indie filmmaker. I have been working in television or radio my entire life. So, storytelling has been ingrained in me from a very young age. As I would attend film festivals, I noticed that I would often get praise for parts of the film that while I directed, I really didn't deserve the credit. I noticed that we often forgot all the other departments. And, this isn't a condemnation of other film festivals...typically the Director or Producer is who shows up to represent the film. But, I wanted to create a film festival that celebrated the entire engine because without every part of a car working, it simply doesn't go anywhere. So, we started Enginuity, a small boutique festival that screens our films in Charles Town, WV in September, but we shine a light on the departments that often get overlooked. We have plenty of praise for Directors too, but we believe there is more than enough to go around.
