If you love creating, or just watching films online, there’s an opportunity coming up in Branson designed just for you.
It’s the “Ozark Mountain Webfest” — and the organizers are calling it the Sundance of new media.
The webfest will be one of the Midwest’s first of it’s kind festival — featuring film entries from talent all around the globe. They’ll compete for awards and the chance to maybe have their work shown on Netflix or another streaming movie service.
Shelley Waggener, who heads up the team, is no stranger to Hollywood. She’s best known for her role as Sonya, in the critically acclaimed “Winter’s Bone.” The movie was shot in the Ozarks and stars Jennifer Lawrence.
Waggener says you don’t have to be a professional to enter the Ozark Mountain Webfest.
Anything made within the last five years will be accepted for the Web Fest. Waggener says the first announced Guest Star for the inaugural Ozark Mountain Web Fest is actor Val Kilmer.
The Ozark Mountain Webfest runs September 28-30 at “The Event Center,” located inside “The Shoppes at Branson Meadows.” If you’re interested in getting your work submitted, visit http://ozarkmtnwebfest.com
