Welcome to the Twin Tiers International Film Festival
The Twin Tiers International Film Festival is dedicated to finding and encouraging new filmmakers to showcase their films and let their voices be heard. We will foster an engaging and inspiring atmosphere where creativity abounds. Our venue is a popular locally owned movie cinema located in a small upstate NY town just a short distance from Binghamton - the hometown of Rod Serling, creator of "The Twilight Zone".
Come for a great festival of film, workshops and networking. Walk in Serling's footsteps and explore Binghamton's downtown and Twilight Zone inspirations. Or just enjoy sometime at the zoo or spend sometime in our region's natural scenic beauty while you visit us!
Every film submitted to us will be viewed start to finish and graded by our judging panel of industry professionals. Our goal is to show as many films as possible across all film genres of any length. We have a big heart for local film and encourage local filmmakers to submit their work regardless of experience.
We are partnered with Shami Media Group (SMG) to provide our selected films and filmmakers a chance at indie film distribution. This is an exciting opportunity we are pleased to be able to offer! You're film may be the next hit on Amazon, Netflix or in the Redbox!
We know how hard the festival circuit can be. We are filmmakers ourselves. We want to invite you to our festival where we will strive to put the filmmakers and their films first. We will have strong networking events to ensure everyone gets an opportunity to discuss their work with other filmmakers. Our workshops will provide additional knowledge of various film making areas from things like writing screenplays to budgeting and funding. Each of our filmmakers will have a chance to discuss their work in our audience talkbacks. It is about the films and the filmmaker. Come and spend some time with us and get ready to leave inspired!
