Submit to our festival to support our newly forming Fort Myers student local film festival community! We will be bringing a new art festival to Southwest Florida, the inaugural Florida SouthWestern Edge Film Festival event, hosted by local and student filmmakers from neighboring colleges FSW/FGCU!

The event will be hosted in an auditorium at Florida Southwestern State College. This festival is an exclusively student film festival (for submissions); with the exception of current teachers or school faculty members, only student filmmakers (high school, college, grad school, any school) may submit to this film festival! To promote growth in our local film community, we also welcome and feature a completely free "Florida Student" category!

Please note: only films created by students, teachers, or school faculty members may be submit to this event. Failing to scan and provide an ID card from the school or university the filmmaker is from to the e-mail: "fswffestival@gmail.com" following submission may result in disqualification or non-selection in the festival.

Critical Edge Film & Art Festival Network strides to bring together a growing cinematic and artistic community with quality local, independent, student, experimental, and international filmmakers through our annual festival events. We've either hosted festival or have festivals planned in Tallahassee, Orlando, Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Nashville, Fort Myers, and New Orleans!
