Making movies is easy. Anyone can do it. Even you.

Festival699 is an annual film gala featuring the cinematic achievements of aspiring low-pro (non-industry) filmmakers. Some were shot and edited in under an hour. Others were years in the making. Some are funny, some are sad, some are weird. And we mean really weird.

Judges sit in the front row (on the good couch) and take detailed notes. By the end of the evening, a lucky few will take home the most coveted of all film awards, the Dolphin.

All films are welcome as long as they meet Festival699's submission criteria.

You bring it, we’ll screen it.

 

little bike

Screened at festival699 2013, Little Bike is, as the title suggests, the story of a man and his little bike. It won people's choice. By a landslide. Music by This Will Destroy You. And it will.

Four foot tea

No one throws a party quite like Sally. Jeff delivers a moving rendition of A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal. Jim makes a great dip. Kurt is just pleased to be included. Screened at festival699 2013.

THE WRONG BROTHERS

Screened at Festival699 2012, this film explores what it takes to get an idea off the ground and whether the Wright brothers were actually right. Music by Radiohead and Rostrum Wood.
