The Academy of Boneheads are proud to announce those daring Independent Filmmakers who not only completed their projects but did so with EXCELLENCE, and in spite of distractions of every kind imaginable. Like a horse race, sometimes the difference is just by a nose and sometimes its by a landslide.

Celebrate your nominations yet know that you are only in competition with yourself. If your project did not get a nomination, you still have the opportunity to champion it and celebrate as you network with and support the nominees. You may find a new team member, collaborator or just an Indie-Friend.

At Bare Bones we are your Film-Family and your #1 cheerleaders. You are all winners! However, not everyone will get a Bonehead Award of Excellence. Remember "Boneheads" get their projects launched with "NO FRILLS-NO WASTE" and By Any Means Necessary-BAMN!

Not all Award categories are pre-announced, some are only announced during the Awards Gala and some may require an additional step (you will be notified) Some awards are only determined from those in Attendance, i.e. Shameless DIY Marketing, Indie Film Spirit Award, Audience Choice Awards.

If you think there is an error, feel free to share your concern via email, however, the final determination is made by the Festival. Threats, Bribes or Tantrums are not welcome. Hmmm Bribes...No.

Awards of Recognition is one of our prime objectives,so no politics required.

MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Bare Bones International Film & Music Festival is dedicated to screening feature motion picture projects with budgets less than one million dollars.

Our philosophy is to promote and support the efforts of the small budget filmmakers and producers. We treat everyone the way we would like to be treated and provide lots of encouragement.

A spring break and networking opportunity for Actors, Writers, Filmmakers and Producers. Our small town experiences will give you a break from the hustle and bustle of a big city.

In the city of Muskogee, OK USA everyone greets you with a smile and a friendly "howdy".

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Our festival was created by filmmakers, screenwriters and actors and was created for filmmakers, screenwriters and actors who are involved in independent motion picture projects anywhere in the world.

Named one of the "25 Festivals worth the entry fee" by Moviemaker Magazine and named one of the "20 best festivals for new and emerging filmmakers." PBS included Bare Bones as one of the top 20 documentary festivals.   The Bare Bones Film Festival experience has long been touted as the "Friendliest Film Festival" by the many filmmakers who return year after year.

The festival will feature narrative and documentary features, short documentary, short narrative and student films, music videos, animation and live screenplay readings in it's competitive program.

Live music and entertainment, classic car shows, receptions, afterparties, tours of surrounding areas make this festival a relaxed atmosphere where you are treated like royalty, make lasting friends and receive the recognition you deserve whether you are the top winner or not.

 We strive to help you find a home for your film. Bare Bones World Cinema is launching a distribution sales option for short and feature filmmakers.

Our panels are designed to give you the filmmaker a chance to be in the spotlight as you share and enhance your filmmaking and film marketing knowledge. Bare Bones is also known for it's focus on youth in front and behind the camera, introducing visiting film festival participants to the next generation of filmmakers via movie-biz career days, kids view talk show and youth talent spotlight during the Bonehead Awards Gala.

Bare Bones is home of the Indie Auteur where recognition is given to those who manage to wear a minimum of 5 hats (positions) bridging pre-post production and marketing.  Indie Auteurs may be honored during the festival with one  being named Indie Auteur of the Year!
