Objective

The Holly Weird Film Festival (HWFF), founded by Festival Director Jack Truman, celebrates independent films of all genres that feature a distinct vision, a unique voice, or an avant-garde challenge to what is expected or accepted. HWFF provides a venue for narrative, documentary, experimental and avant-garde film and video. Holly Weird is dedicated to celebrating all types of creativity from the worldwide independent film community.

We make it our mission to showcase the work of filmmakers who defy independent visions.

The Holly Weird Film Festival has become a platform for artists to showcase their creativity through film and about the voices that need to be heard. We are looking for true original, visionary filmmakers with fresh voices to share with an audience hungry for true independent film. Show More
