Our inagural 54 Film Fest in Chattanooga was this past weekend and we are so thrilled with the turnout! A lot of you are probably wondering what happens to your film once it's submitted? Well they have been uploaded to a private Youtube link and sent to our judges along with score sheets for each film. The judges have a certain amount of time to watch all of the films and turn in their score sheets. That's it! It's pretty simple. Now, let me introduce you to our 2015 Chattanooga Judges!
