Entries are now being accepted for the 2006 edition of B-Movie Film Festival, which will be held March 3-5 at the newly restored Palace Movie Theater in Syracuse, New York.

The festival, which was profiled in the Wall Street Journal during its 2004 incarnation, defines a B-Movie as a production whose entertainment and artistic value exceeds the limitations of its budget. Feature films, documentaries and short subjects are open for consideration. The B-Movie Film Festival culminates in an award ceremony honoring the finest of the competition. Among the judges for the 2006 festival are Ron Bonk, president of SRS Cinema, and Phil Hall, contributing editor for Film Threat and author of “The Encyclopedia of Underground Movies: Films from the Fringes of Cinema” and the upcoming “Independent Film Distribution” (both from MWP Books). Additional judges including movie critics and B-Movie Fest Board members will be added in the next few weeks.

This year’s festival will also provide a mix of the best contemporary B-Movies and the classics of the genre. The films in the running for the Best B-Movie will be screened at the Palace Movie Theater, an 700-seat historic venue which recently re-opened after a detailed renovation brought back its old-time glory.

Entry fees postmarked by January 15 are $35 per feature and $25 per short. Entry fees postmarked by January 31 are $45 per feature and $35 per short. Films should be submitted in either VHS (NTSC format), DVD or DVD-R; five copies of each film are required for submission.
