2016 Festival Criteria


At some point in each film, the following line of dialogue must be spoken:

“Have you ever been to a farm? … It’s not for everyone.”


This year’s location element incorporates several iconic landmarks within a selection of Spokane’s historic neighborhood districts.


Each team received a card with a number on it (1, 2, 3, or 4). The number corresponds with one of four landmarks within four different neighborhood districts. (See landmark map above for details)

The landmark that corresponds with each teams number must appear in their film. How they choose to feature it is up to them, but the physical exterior of the landmark/location must be visually present in their film to count.

PLEASE NOTE: If a team was assigned the Hillyard District Mural Landmark, they must also credit the mural artist in their end credits as:

Featured Mural By

Tom Quinn, 1996


Each film must incorporate one of three provided themes and were judged by how well the theme is worked into it. The theme for this year’s competition is a style of dance, as explored by local choreographers.

Each choreographer is featured in the following videos where they discuss their chosen style of dance performance (Modern, Belly-dance, or Ballet).

Each film must incorporate their randomly assigned style of dance into its theme. How they interpret the style of dance AND the choreographer’s approach to expressing it and weave it into their film is entirely up to them, with their score from the judges being based on how creatively they incorporate the dance style and choreography process into the overall theme of each film.
