The Castle Rock Artist Cooperative is proud to announce their first-ever, first-annual Castle Rock Film Festival, taking place April 14 and 15, 2023, at the Theatre of Dreams in Castle Rock, Colorado.
The event will be held, rain or shine at the Theater of Dreams in beautiful Castle Rock Colorado.
The event will begin at 7PM, but mingling time will begin at 5PM as the doors open at the festival. There will be a food truck on the premises, and all beverage sales will go to benefit the CRAC (Castle Rock Arts Cooperative) Veteran’s Art Therapy Program.
Films will begin promptly at 7PM. But anyone can walk the red carpet, be merry and learn more about the Castle Rock Arts Cooperative, which will have a table for information and merchandise at the event.

From each of the four categories, a single film will be selected as the winner. These winners will receive an opportunity for a short, filmed Q&A either filmed onstage at the festival’s venue or in one of our professional recording studios. This video will be posted on the festival sponsor’s YouTube page. The filmmakers will also receive THE ROCK AWARD for their category. THE ROCK is a custom made trophy that will have the winners named engraved in them as well as the name of their film.
As stated, each category will receive THE ROCK award. The categories are as follows:
THE ROCK for Outstanding Documentary (no more than 30 minutes in length)
THE ROCK for Outstanding Short Film (no more than 30 minutes in length)
THE ROCK for Outstanding Music Video
THE ROCK for Outstanding Experimental Video
*There is no time requirement for either the Music Video or Experimental Video but we emphasize quality in submissions and in selections. With the programming of our festival we do not currently accept movies about 30 minutes in length
**For the Documentary and Short Film categories we do not accept films longer than 30 minutes of length and emphasize quality in these submissions.
*** A single film will only be able to submit for a single category.
**** A filmmaker will be allowed to make several submissions but will only be able to win one category for one category. Filmmakers will not be able to win several categories.
The finalists will be announced before the festival and winners for the festival will be told before the screening date and invited for their Q&A either at a prescheduled time or at the festival.
