The Central Film Festival is one of the only student-led, high school film festivals in the country, hosted in beautiful downtown Springfield, Missouri.

For the upcoming 2018 festival, we are excited to offer, such as on-site contests, a special opening night film and director talk in the newly restored Central Theatre, and festival screenings at Springfield’s arthouse cinema–The Moxie.

Additionally, attendees can continue to enjoy the characteristics that have always made the festival unique, like industry-professional judging, written critiques for the students, and free film submissions.
