MISSION STATEMENT

Third Eye Film Festival aims to build a community dedicated to showcasing ‘otherworldly’ stories and supports the work of visionary female filmmakers in spiritual, fantasy, and horror genres.

THE FESTIVAL

Founded by filmmakers perpetually in pursuit of the unknown, Third Eye Film Festival (TEFF) aims to build a community of visionary artists who explore ‘otherworldly’ stories with themes of fantasy, occult, and mysticism. The festival’s objective is to provide a new platform which profiles films that delve into spiritual and supernatural realms.

FEMALE EYE CATEGORY

Third Eye Film Festival strives to elevate the work of female filmmakers who work in spiritual, fantasy, and horror genres. Through the Female Eye category, TEFF offers discounted submissions fees for films made by women to encourage their participation. Films selected for this category will be highlighted in the Festival Program. TEFF is incredibly proud of its goal to break stigmas and highlight powerful female-driven content, ultimately opening doors to social change.

SPIRITUAL CATEGORY

Third Eye Film Festival supports and encourages unconventional storytelling through its unique Spiritual category. This category provides a home for genre-fluid films about humanity, the intangible, and what lies beyond. Films may be direct narratives about spirituality, rituals, and faith. These complex concepts also naturally lend themselves to filmmaking techniques that are dreamlike, performative, or otherwise experimental. TEFF believes ‘magic’ is a universally relatable concept that can only be defined by the individual, and can mean anything from astrology, to higher powers, to meditation. With the Spiritual category, Third Eye Film Festival proudly celebrates the marriage of art & personal truths.
