First Take Film Festival

With the explosion of the film festival market, the circuit has become less about giving new and upcoming artists a platform as it has become just another vehicle for mainstream to strut their “artistic” side. First Take strives to be a return to the festivals of the late eighties and early nineties where visionary young filmmakers, musicians, and now visual artists, can premiere the next great song, sculpture, or feature. As a result, the materials the founders will be looking for will be edgy, against-the-grain, and possibly even controversial.

The festival will feature the best in independent and innovated films while giving opportunities to professional, first-time, and student filmmakers who also share the dream of uniting the independent spirit with the prominent filmmaking industry of today.

Additionally to meet the needs of the ever-changing marketplace, the festival is intended to also act as a trade show where vendors can come and display the latest technology, equipment, and products. Thereby introducing the artists of the future to the companies of the future.

In its inaugural year, the First Take festival is aimed at showcasing talent from both the independent film and music industry as well as visual artists.

The goal from the beginning is to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers and to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas.
