“STAY THE F*CK HOME Film Festival” (STFH) celebrates at-home filmmakers while raising money for frontline workers. Organized by UnReal Media, in partnership with Series Fest, Denver Film and the Covid 19 Response Charity, “Fuel Our Heroes,” the Festival will support relief efforts and showcase local and national creative talents.

Launched April 18, filmmakers must submit their videos by May 15.

The STFH Film Festival is currently accepting videos of five minutes or less that must be shot entirely in and around the filmmakers’ homes. There are seven different submission categories that include comedy/musical, drama, horror, action, unscripted documentary, college and high school.

“We wanted to find a way to support relief efforts to first responders while giving people a creative outlet in a stressful time.” Said Festival Co-Creator Betsy Leighton.

The winners of each category will have their film screened at The Denver Film Festival in November 2020) and will receive a free pass to The Series Fest 2020 Virtual Festival. In addition, one Jury Prize will be selected from the category winners to walk the red carpet at the Denver Film Festival and attend an exclusive one-on-one meeting with a select group of industry professionals for a personal mentor session.

“We’re thrilled to have UnReal Media and all the co-sponsors help drive awareness and much needed funding to our cause. The healthcare workers are risking their lives daily to fight this virus and it’s our mission to provide them as much support as possible,” said Fuel Our Heroes Co-Founder, Wilson Murane.

“Yes, this virus has severely affected the way we live our lives, but it’s also led to an explosion of creativity in how we communicate, celebrate and engage with our families. That’s what this film festival is about,” said Jake Eisbart, Festival Co-Creator.
