The StarLite Film Festival is a showcase of microbudget films - that is, films that are made with less than $200,000. See how more can be done with much less by viewing the movies created by this year's featured independent filmmakers. The event is named after the original StarLite drive-in theatre built in 1949, and the first festival received 900 attendees. People come from all over to view and submit their films, and featured speakers come and share some of their wisdom from Hollywood.
This year's StarLite Film Festival includes microbudget films My Fair Lidy, The Paragon Cortex, 18, Tarsus, Beinahe Negative, The Perfect 46, Pennsylvania Holy Ghosts, Tu Seras Un Homme (You'll Be A Man), Silvi, and Palace Living. The films come from around the world, including North America, Germany, and France. Directors at the StarLite Film Festival will sit on panels and talk to guests, and free sessions will be provided to give direction to aspiring filmmakers.
