The Jukebox International Film Festival (JIFF) is presented in conjunction with Jazz and Beyond: Carson City Music Festival, a 17-day, multi-venue concert series. JIFF is designed to compliment the music festival by presenting films that celebrate music and musicians.
JIFF will take place at the Bob Boldrick Theatre located inside the Carson City Community Center in Carson City, Nevada on August 23-24, 2018. An awards ceremony will be held at the conclusion of the Festival. Tickets are available for purchase in advance and at the door.
In order to qualify, narrative films (features and shorts) must in some way incorporate musical themes, such as storylines that focus on musicians or performers or songwriters, music-oriented settings or locations, or other celebrations of music. If you’re not sure about your film qualifying, please feel free to send any questions you might have to the Festival.
Documentary films (features and shorts) must focus on real life stories of musicians or performers or songwriters, or include stories about music-oriented events, settings or locations, or otherwise celebrate real life music and musical events in some way.
Music videos are self-explanatory and may not exceed seven and one-half (7-1/2) minutes in length.
There are no genre restrictions in any category.
Filmmakers will enjoy the benefits of being part of Jazz and Beyond and will have access to many of their presentations. JIFF will also host several activities centered around the visiting filmmakers. More events will be added as the festival dates approach.
Awards and prizes will be presented to the winning films in each category. Films will be judged by a panel of music industry professionals. The full list of judges will be published prior to the start of the Festival. All decisions made by the judges will be considered final.
