The 3rd Annual Mission Viejo Film Festival has arrived! The Film Festival will showcase aspiring filmmakers as well as support City of Hope’s Pediatric Center for Cancer Research and Treatment.
Proceeds from the Mission Viejo Film Festival will benefit to the City of Hope’s Pediatric Center for Cancer Research and Treatment.
Each screening will present films that meet the run-time guides for each category: “Short Films: High School”, “Short Films: College/Indie” and this year’s selected music video. The following five awards will be presented – the Mark Jennings Award, City of Hope Award, People’s Choice Award, The MV Award, and the Mayor’s Award. After every screening, there is a session with the filmmakers to discuss their work and answer questions about their films.
The 1st annual Mission Viejo Film Festival raised more than $5,000 for cancer research and treatment at City of Hope, with the 2nd annual event raising over $6,500.
Launched by brothers Grant and Tyler Voss in memory of their late uncle Mark Jennings, the May 21 film festival rolled out the red carpet to showcase young filmmakers and support a great cause. Around 300 people gathered at the Kaleidoscope to enjoy several short films from aspiring filmmakers throughout Orange County with similar attendance the following year.
