We are bringing ‘Indie’ back to the independent film festival. There are so many great festivals out there but it seems unless you have big budgets and big names you will be over looked. The Red Sands Film Festival is all about celebrating the independent filmmaker. We want to see story telling at its best! It’s a tough world out there and we want to give the little players a chance to make a name for themselves.

We are interested in story first everything else second. You don’t need big budgets or celebrities to ensure you will be seen. You just need to tell a great story, everything else is a bonus.

Which also brings us to the best part! You enter once and you are entering for every award! At Red Sands you don’t have to pay for each category. One payment and you are in the running for every award that your film can win.
