HWY 61 Film Festival

By on May 26, 2016

The Highway 61 Film Festival is an annual celebration of film and filmmakers held in Pine City every October. The weekend-long festival is open to filmmakers everywhere, though a special emphasis is put on local filmmakers. Competition is open to both short (less than 40 minutes) and feature films. Categories include: Drama, Comedy, Action/Horror, Documentary and Animation. Also, the festival welcomes Student Short films by students grades K-12.

Submissions will be reviewed by judges, and cash prizes will be awarded to the top film in each category: $100 for features, $50 for short films.


Filmmakers can get entry forms online at highway61filmfestival.org, and submit their films by mailing or dropping them off at the Pine Center for the Arts at 265 Fifth Street SE,  Pine City, MN.


Submission fees are $5 for short films and $10 per feature film, though all Student Short films are free to submit.
