Mission Statement


FilmQuest is a festival of the Fantastic founded by filmmakers, for filmmakers. It is our goal to bring you an experience unlike any other that not only rewards but advances your career as a filmmaker and an artist. It is our hope that FilmQuest helps lay a foundation for new and upcoming filmmakers, furthers the careers of more established professionals, inspires its patrons, and can be a home for filmmakers for years to come.

We believe in cultivating the talents and successes of our alumni, and involved them with our jurying of awards, while also announcing their distribution deals, career progression, and more. FilmQuest is a family, and we believe all should be included.
