Corpus Christi Gets A Festival!

Thursday, January 26th, 2012 by

Texas is taking film festival locales and big name busting to a whole new level with the announcement of the Corpus Christi Film Festival affectionately dubbed Crash The Coast! Taking place around 200 miles from SXSW, the Crash The Coast Film Fest is the brain child of the Corpus Christi Film Society which is looking to bring film to their town in a big way.

The festival is slated to run for three days, from May 10, 2012 – May 13, 2012 and will be essentially open ended as far as entries are concerned with the exception of not accepting entries that have screened within 100 miles of the coastal town. Essentially this stipulation serves the purpose of still including the possibility of films screening at SXSW (which, again, is 200 miles away in Austin, TX) but opening the door for filmmakers not native to Corpus and/or filmmakers who haven’t screened films to their immediate audience (i.e. the audience right in their backyard).

The festival, again, has stated that it is fairly flexible when it comes to the theme and makeup of films, only putting a bar on the length to 30 minutes of less and the creation of the film needing to be after January 2011. Currently Crash The Coast is in active Call for Entries mode with a deadline of March 10, 2012 for early submissions ($50 covers the cost of submission). Late submissions can be sent in as late as March 29, 2012 but the price raises an additional $25. All submissions should be mailed via FedEx, UPS, or USPS to Heidi Hovda at 410 SPID, Suite 200, Corpus Christi, TX 78405. The submission fees can be paid by check or money order (made payable to Corpus Christi Film Society, or by credit card (American Express, Mastercard, or Visa). The festival also sponsors an early submission fee of $30.00 for films coming in before February 14, 2012.
