Davey’s Voice Film Festival Call for Entries Deadline Extended for Local Animal Films
Friday, December 1, 2017 - 17:00
Local nonprofit Davey’s Voice will be hosting a film festival centered on the lives of animals on January 13th, 2018. Davey’s Voice has announced an extension of the deadline for film submissions until Friday December 1st, 2017.
The 1st Annual Davey’s Voice Film Festival will take place at the New Vic Theatre in downtown Santa Barbara, California. The goal of the event is to raise awareness for animal welfare and highlight the bond between human and animal. The Davey’s Voice Film Festival hopes to bring about a positive change for the lives of animals, and to inspire social change for their benefit.
All proceeds of the film festival will benefit animal welfare programs including Paws Up 4 Pets, a collaboration between Davey's Voice and CARE 4 PAWS educating local youth on responsible pet
ownership, and Social Compassion in Legislation, a non-profit organization that has been sponsoring landmark legislation to save animals since 2007.
• The films must be animal related.
• Only short films less than 20 minutes in length will be reviewed. Trailers also accepted.
• Priority selection will be given to films featuring animals local to the Santa Barbara area, or greater Southern California area.
• While films may discuss harsher animal welfare or animal rights issues, graphic images or footage will NOT be considered, due to the family-friendly nature of the event.
Please submit films to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “DVFF Film Entry.” Links to films on YouTube, Vimeo or other video-sharing sites accepted. To learn more about the event visit www.daveysvoice.org/daveys-voice-film-festival.
About Davey’s Voice
Davey’s Voice, a Santa Barbara County 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2015 to honor Davey, a five-month-old puppy who had to be euthanized after enduring ongoing torture by his owner. Davey’s Voice was formed to speak out for future victims of abuse, and to educate the community so another animal does not have to suffer in silence as Davey did. Davey’s Voice supports projects and programs that promote animal welfare, reduce suffering, and save lives. Davey’s Voice advocates for harsher laws and stronger legislation against animal abuse.
