What is Crossover Film Festival:


In 2018, the Crossover Film Festivals created an incredibly diverse and supportive inaugural event. Filmmakers from across the USA came to watch, judge and discuss 25 short films. 1st CFF received over 750 films, screened 25, 18 won over 50 awards in multiple categories. This event was the warm up. In 2019, CFF wants to create something even better and which supports the filmmaking community in a proactive way!

In fact, this event could revolutionize the way in which people enter the media industry.

Crossover Film Festival: Hollywoodbridge will be much more than a film festival. It will be workshops, networking events and discussions with film industry professionals with one incredible goal: to get rising talent into the film industry!

In October 2019, established and upcoming filmmakers will converge just outside of Washington DC for the one day festival. Over this time, they’ll form connections, watch films learn one of a kind insider information, have fun and create amazing new opportunities for one another.

Succeeding in the media world is notoriously difficult. Many bright and hardworking people never get the break that they deserve. If someone isn’t in the right family or from a non media background, then it is that much more difficult to get a start in film!

Crossover Film Festival: Hollywoodbridge will provide these people with a one of a kind opportunity and support their filmmaking efforts in new and exciting ways.

Lauren Vanderveen

Film Critic Writer Editor

Lauren received her bachelor's degree in film studies from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. One line of a Wesley Morris review inspired her to become a film critic and dare to be so commanding of the English language: She could pin a corsage on you with a sword. Her last position as a contributing writer was for Up & Coming, a weekly newspaper in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Now as a freelance writer, she spends her time doing what she loves most: watching and reviewing movies. Her all-time favs include a mixed bag of Kristen Stewart indies, a lot of Yasujiro Ozu, and the film Notorious, without a doubt.
