Making a feature or a short film is hard and it's something you do not start with if you're not passionate (or crazy), especially if you haven't found the necessary budget to make it happen. Nevertheless, many of you are one or the other, or even both, and made that film project anyway.
We truly admire that.
So, the annual Real Deal low budget film festival is there to promote independent quality films (feature as well as short films) made under very light budget conditions.
We want to highlight talented producers, film directors, actors, actresses and crews whose creation(s) have not been able to benefit from major financial aid by showing their films to other more established professionals.
We would like to specify that the festival is absolutely not intended for audiovisual "enthusiasts" only. We want to give the same opportunity to amateurs as well as professionals. We do understand making films with no money is difficult, but it will have to look like a film, though. (See rules to understand what we mean by this)
The selected feature films have all of the great, minus the budget, but with the added talent.
A film made by passionated people, is what it's all about ...
it's the real deal !
