About the Screaming Ostrich Film Festival
When it comes to film festivals they all claim to be different. But, well, we’re different! We’re perhaps the first film festival to look ahead at what artists will accomplish instead of behind at what they’ve already done. So come join us for these great films and together we can imagine what these film makers will be creating for us in the future! 7+ hours of films, documentaries, animation, and music videos will fill the weekend. Free networking events, panels, and a Free Family Friendly screening on Saturday at 3pm.
Our Family Friendly event features the award winning “Snowflake.” Snowflake is the the story of Jesse, an introverted young girl, struggling with acceptance, who finds her voice with hip hop music.
We are pleased to offer the following ticketing options:
