The purpose of the festival is to recognize aspiring filmmakers of almost every genre to include independent film, music, animation, short and long features, documentaries, and screenwriting.It is also an opportunity to showcase the beautiful "film-friendly" region of Beaufort and the Carolina Sea Islands.
