Online film fest issues call for entries

Web site visitors to judge pics

The Audience Awards Film Festival is calling for entries for its inaugural event, to stream online March 2-22.

Submissions will be accepted until Jan. 31 for competition in feature, documentary, animation, short, student and experimental film categories.

Event is the second project organized by exhibition and distribution Web site Always Independent Films, host of the first-ever online film festival in 1999 (which, by the site’s count, drew roughly 40,000 visitors).

The awards will be judged by visitors to the Always Independent site, who will be asked during the fest to assign points to each of the competing films. Organizers said the feedback will give potential distributors a gauge of the works’ commercial viability.

There is no submission fee. For more information call (513) 965-0049 or visit
