10th Annual Myrtle Beach International Film Festival Billed as “The East Coast’s Answer to the Sundance Film Festival”

Billed as “The East Coast’s Answer to the Sundance Film Festival,” the Festival boasts the most impressive lineup yet, according to organizers. Films and film makers from around the world will showcase their work, many as a world premier.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, March 23, 2015 – The 10th Annual Myrtle Beach International Film Festival (MBIFF), billed as “The East Coast’s answer to the Sundance Film Festival,” has set this year’s Festival dates for April 22-25, 2015. The Film Festival will utilize a state of the art theater at Carmike Cinema 17, Broadway at the Beach, 1175 Celebrity Cir., Myrtle Beach, SC.

Winner of prestigious international and national awards, such as “Top 25 Film Festivals To Submit To In The World,” by Movie Maker Magazine, and recognition as one of the best film festivals in the world, by Film International, the MBIFF call for entry has closed for this year’s event and organizers look forward to a phenomenal line up of films that will be on the big screen this year.

“The MBIFF’s reputation as one of the top venues for showcasing feature films, documentaries, and short films has helped the festival grow,” says founder and director, Jerry Dalton. “While we are proud of how international the festival has become, the beauty of expanding MBIFF over the years has also opened a submission category for local and regional student and budding filmmakers, in addition to the outstanding global films we enjoy. It simply is a wonderful opportunity for exposure for our community and artists.”

Attending this year’s event will be filmmakers, industry producers and several actors from featured films, short films, and documentaries, all of whom will have interaction with the audience in informal “Q&A” sessions following each film. This audience participation will not only provide film industry networking, but will also offer a deeper understanding of the filmmaking craft, from the on-the-screen and behind-the-screen perspective.

Over 80% of last year’s films had at least one if not many attached to the film attend the festival. The interactive setting makes for a unique film going experience.

In addition, this festival will host dinner on Friday, April 24 provided by Little Pigs BBQ and beer from New South Brewery. On Saturday evening, April 25th, Silver Coast Winery will have a wine sampling in the lobby and Sushi will be provided by Jimmyz Hibachi with entertainment provided by Denny Hess Jazz Trio. At the closing of the event on Saturday evening a gathering after the awards will be held at Sun City Café (801 Main St.) All the food, wine, beer, and after award gathering is included for the price of the ticket.

Tickets can be purchased individually for $10 per 2 hour film block or an All Access Pass for $50 which includes all films and all events available via Paypal at http://www.MyrtleBeachFilmFestival.com or call 843-497-0220.
