Small Budget Film Track

Small budget filming is films done in a non-traditional, non-Hollywood way. Film types in this category include Fan Films and some Independent films. Film makers with small budgets are the most creative, finding ways to change the script filming techniques, sets, and so on to work with what they have. You hardly ever hear about these films because they have no monster marketing machine to get the word out.

The Shore Leave Small Budget film track aims to help you find some of the most creative audiovisual SF works around! To this end, we screen quality examples of these films in the SF&F genre including talks by the film makers and actors when possible. This track typically includes 8 to 12 hours of AV programming in a media room.
