Registrations are now open for the 2021 Klamath Independent Film Festival


The following is a press release from the Klamath Independent Film Festival

Planning is in full swing again and films are now accepted for submission, for the Klamath Independent Film Festival (KIFF) 2021 – scheduled September 17-19, 2021 at Ross Ragland Theater and available online through Eventive.

Films completed on or before January 1, 2020 that were primarily shot in Oregon or created by Oregon filmmakers are now accepted through FilmFreeway. There is a $ 20 fee to submit a film, however, the fee will happily be waived for anyone who requests it by emailing [email protected]

Films will be accepted between Monday February 1 and Tuesday June 1. Once the submission window closes, multiple levels of judges will review each submission, with selections for the ninth annual Klamath Independent Film Festival announced in mid-July.

The festival will take place over three days at the Ross Ragland Theater in Klamath Falls, Oregon and simultaneously broadcast live and video on demand via Eventive. While ongoing COVID-19 protocols restrict the ability to host an in-person audience, KIFF’s activities will continue exclusively through live streaming and VOD.

KIFF, the premier Oregon-centric film festival, hosts Made-in-Oregon films, as well as films from the counties bordering Northern California, in several categories:

  • Northern Oregon Feature Films (40 minutes or more)

  • Northern Oregon Shorts (less than 40 minutes)

  • Northern Oregon K-12 Student Films (maximum duration 5 minutes)

  • Southern Oregon / Northern California Feature Films (40 minutes or longer)

  • Southern Oregon / Northern California Shorts (less than 40 minutes)

  • Films for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students of Southern Oregon (5 minutes maximum)

Cash prizes totaling $ 1,900 will be given away on the last night of the festival, along with the return of KIFF’s popular unique, carved wood artwork as film-specific rewards. The Southern Cascade Woodcrafters Guild will create unique trophies for each category.
