We rely on donations to keep TEFF an inexpensive, accessible event for filmmakers and audiences. It’s our goal to host multiple screenings throughout the year, to increase our reach and exposure for the films.

Why TEFF Stands out
FEMALE EYE CATEGORY
Third Eye Film Festival strives to elevate the work of all women filmmakers who work in spiritual, fantasy, and horror genres. Through the Female Eye category, TEFF offers discounted submissions fees for films made by female Directors and Cinematographers to encourage their participation. TEFF is incredibly proud of its goal to break stigmas and highlight powerful female-driven content, ultimately opening doors to social change.
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. These complex concepts also naturally lend themselves to filmmaking techniques that are dreamlike, performative, or otherwise experimental. With the Spiritual category, Third Eye Film Festival proudly celebrates the marriage of art and personal truths.
As genre filmmakers ourselves, we yearned for a community of artists in the same ‘otherworldly’ realm of imagination, so we created one. The curation of the festival harmonizes seemingly contrasting film genres, and thus Third Eye Film Festival (TEFF) forms bonds between filmmakers across the globe. Furthermore, in our current socio-political climate, fostering a community that amplifies the voices of marginalized artists is critical. We make a point to embrace filmmakers whose concepts live at the frontier between innovation and revolution.
