Concrete Dream Film Festival programs experimental, arthouse, and avant-garde films chosen through filmmakers submissions, showcasing the most inspiring and innovative works from visual artists around the world. Our mission is to bring awareness, recognition, and publicity to the films and their filmmakers. By showcasing films and filmmakers who successfully break boundaries of commercialized formulas, we believe we can set an expansive example and create a wider appreciative audience which can make a positive impact on the arts and entertainment industries. We are interested in films that are thought provoking and innovative, inspiring and artistic, structurally different, successful at executing risk taking choices, progressive artistic processes and execution of filmmaking, and production techniques that better the experience of outdated formulas. We believe there is a large audience in the world that would appreciate these types of films opposed to the more hugely publicized formulaic block busters. We believe there is a healthier way to make films, a more satisfying way to completion, and a more contemplative meditative execution compared to the outdated modes of long exhausting hours, no sleep, and worn out mindsets. We want to change the movie industry one artfilm at a time.
