Welcome to the first annual 573 Film Festival. The 573 Film Festival will present independent films, shorts, trailers, documentaries, TV pilots and experimental films from around the region and selects films from outside the area. The festival is put on by independent filmmakers. To us, indie means blood, sweat, and tears -we’ve been there. It means overcoming insurmountable obstacles and loving it. It means ignoring naysayers and dream squashers, and doing it anyway. The indie spirit is alive and well in the 573 region. 573 Film Festival is here to support local filmmakers. We're here to support their passion. We need your help.
