The Overcome Film Festival is a venue for all storytellers, filmmakers, and artists to tell the world their stories of survival and triumph over adversity. It is the focus of the film festival to give survivors a voice and a venue to share their life experiences and provide hope to others.
The names of the winners will be published online and certificates will be awarded. As the festival is about providing a voice to survivors, financial awards and prizes will be foregone in lieu of certificates.
Everyone is invited to participate with their work. Animation, narrative and non-narratives, audiovisual poetry films, and experimental works are accepted. The Festival especially encourages the entries of anyone who wants to share their experiences in overcoming challenges, illnesses, disabilities or any other factor that has contributed to their growth as a person and motivated them to celebrate their existence.
The Overcome Film Festival is an international event and everyone all over the world is encouraged and welcome to participate.
Film submissions will be categorized into 22 Award Categories.
