Welcome to filmSHIFT

The 4th Annual Filmshift Festival

The Filmshift Festival presents films from across the nation, produced independently and on the local level.

Our goal is to highlight films and screenplays of all kinds, support the art of film, and support charity. Ten percent of our gross ticket sales will be donated to Christopher’s Haven.
