“It is a new and refreshing way to do film festivals. Thank you very much for accepting my film and thank you even more for the feedback. It was excellent feedback and it is nice to have fresh eyes on this project.” – Kevin Almodovar, Director of “Until Death”

“We are humbled by your kind words of The Coming Convergence.” – Carrie Miller of Ingenuity Films (http://www.ingenuityfilms.com/)

“Many thanks and what an honor it is to be included in the Perennial Film Festival. Thank you for your critique and very useful comments on our production.” – Jason Meath, CEO of Meath Television Media LLC

“Again. Thank you. Your evaluation really helped me understand my film more and is also helpful for my future projects.” – Roman Sotelo, Producer of “Grief”

Perennial Film Festival is founded by Ryan Sharp of Perennial Motion Pictures. The Festival was created to provide a quality venue for filmmakers to present quality works that are technically sound to the community. The mission of Perennial Film Festival is to provide filmmakers with a platform to connect, learn, and reach people with quality stories via the video and film craft.

We do everything we can to help filmmakers improve their craft and promote the filmmakers in our festival. There are multiple ways we do this and fulfill our mission:

1) Unlike most festivals and as a thank you for submitting your film to us, we provide an evaluation of your film as a courtesy for you to use as you choose. Our judges panel is made up of professionals who work in various parts of the business. Their evaluations will give you professional tips, tools, and advice you can use to improve your film and craft. This is just another thing that sets Perennial Film Festival apart from other festivals.

2) We have educational Q+As with filmmakers and a lot of audience feedback/interaction.

3) Multiple ways and opportunities to connect and build relationships with other filmmakers, movie fans, and friends in the community through round table discussions, promotions tables, dinner parties, conversations, and movie memorabilia giveaways.

Instructional films, documentaries, short shorts, shorts, features, and all types of films are accepted.

The festival will be held annually at the Punta Gorda Historical Building at 118 Sullivan St in downtown Punta Gorda, FL, which is right next to a waterfront hotel and has plenty of parking. There’s also beautiful restaurants, shops, waterfront parks, and downtown venues to check out.

Perennial Film Festival greatly appreciates all volunteers, private donors, and sponsors.
