The Film Festival of Columbus strives to create an experience that will bring a new and diverse cultural event to the area. The festival aims to bring people together, showcasing seasoned and rising filmmakers and extraordinary work from around the world. While promoting Columbus, Ohio as a filmmaking destination for all budgets, FFOCOL represents a turning point in the city's creative scene.
It is through the art of cinema that we foster a community that is more engaged, aware and alive. The festival is an invitation only format picking the best and brightest of up-and-coming independent films and their directors. Through seminars, Q&As with the Ohio Film Office and The Greater Columbus Film Commission, and possible location scouts, the festival strives to raise awareness of Columbus and Ohio as a filmmakers destination.
