2009 Oxford Fest Moves to West Chester & Open for Entries…

Hey guys, I just wanted you all to know that we have finally announced some big, exciting changes to the film festival in 2009. First and foremost, the festival will actually be taking place in West Chester, Ohio (about 40min south of Oxford, just north of downtown Cincinnati) in 2009. We have some amazing new venues (including the brand-new Savannah Center, which just opened in 2008) and are working with some great officials in West Chester to bring you an even bigger, better festival.  To answer another frequent question: the name will not change, we are still, and always will be the Oxford International Film Festival.

The new, awesome-looking website for the 2009 fest is now up at www.oxfordfilms.com and has all the details. You can also read the recent press-release in which I explain the reasons for the move by going here: www.oxfordfilms.com/oiff/press.htm.

In addition to that, we’re also now open for entries globally for the 2009 festival, for complete details, to submit online or download a paper-entry form check out www.oxfordfilms.com/oiff/submit.htm. We’re accepting entries through April 1st of 2009, so it’s not a huge rush, but the sooner you submit, the cheaper the entry fee (ALL student entries are still FREE through February 1st!) so get your films in, we want to see your work!

We’ve got another couple of awesome announcements coming up here in the next few weeks with the fest, so I’ll be sure to keep you all posted as they come up and we’re ready to make things public.
