The 37th Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival will take place April 16-25, 2004, screening just 50-60 feature film premieres. A call for entries has been issued with the Main Entry Deadline on Dec. 15th 2003, with a FINAL Deadline of Jan. 15th 2004.
WorldFest Artistic and Program Director, Kathleen Haney, stated, “We are continuing our focus on a quality selection of individual films to maintain a smaller, yet effective program rather than an overly large and unwieldy slate of 150-300 films. In consideration of both our festival audiences and the independent filmmakers, we feel that a solid high-quality program of no more than 60 features is optimum in a ten-day festival with twelve screening slots (on three theater screens) per day.” Haney continued, “We are looking for ‘A good story, well told’ as our time-tested approach to film selection. We have special sidebars of Foreign, Children’s and Family Film Sections. All of our films are totally Indie productions, and each film is well represented by their filmmakers, who attend to introduce their films!”
All 35mm & DVD films are screened at the NOVA Meyerland Theater, host of the 2004 WorldFest.
