Submissions to the Highbridge Film Festival are judged for acceptance based on their technical professionalism and storytelling strength. Although all potential applicants are encouraged to submit their films, the Highbridge Film Festival production team wishes to emphasize that the festival is an opportunity to showcase the very best talent at Asbury University and from high school applicants. Accepted films will exhibit above-average skill by the filmmakers as directors and writers. The festival judges also reserve the right to reject a film if its content contains gratuitous or explicit violence or obscenity. The Highbridge Film Festival is open to different expressions of truth, but is dedicated to maintaining a high standard of redemptive storytelling.
Accepted films may include the Official Logo on their posters.
