Nomad Film Festival, a DTN Experience event, is the country's first rolling film festival, travelling across the United States to find the best and brightest in independent filmmaking. This year, Nomad will be rolling through Atlanta, GA, Las Vegas, NV, and Chicago, Illinois. The best of these cities will go on to compete at a final ceremony, where the winner will receive an incredible opportunity to advance their projects.
While the health and safety of our employees and participants are of upmost priority, we still want to offer filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their work in a setting worthy of their creative accomplishments, so Nomad will quite literally be a rolling film festival! The festival will be staged as a drive-in theater to allow for a classic spin on social distancing. For fans and finalists unable to roll through, the festival will be streaming live on virtual platforms and equipped with video conferencing capabilities.
Join us for our first leg in Atlanta, GA on October 22, 2020! Dates for our Las Vegas and Chicago legs will be announced soon.
The following awards will be presented at each leg of the festival:
Best Short Film
Best Horror Short
Best Drama Short
Best Comedy Short
Best Animated Short
Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Short
Audience Choice Award
Each recipient of the Best Short Film award will advance to the final ceremony in April, where one will be selected to receive a grand prize of $10,000 in production credit and their film featured on Nomad's parent company, DTN TV Network (DTN). Additional prizes may be awarded without announcement.
