Microbudget Films

Curated by Matt Glasson

With the increase in affordable cameras and editing software today, content and media creators are now able to produce their own ideas in short, serial and feature length formats at budgets heretofore thought of as unrealistically low. The Greenpoint Film Festival wishes to extend their support to the DIY filmmaking community by nurturing this trend by presenting and awarding feature films that have been produced on a microbudget scale (less than $50,000). The feature film “Love Stalker” (from Greenpoint filmmaker Matt Glasson) was awarded “Best Microbudget Feature” at last year’s festival and Glasson is on this year’s festival committee for the microbudget film category. It is the hope of the Greenpoint Film Festival to encourage the growth of micro budget filmmaking by continuing to present films that fit this criteria in the years ahead.
