ABOUT THE JUKEBOX INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL


The Jukebox International Film Festival (JIFF) is presented in conjunction with Jazz and Beyond: Carson City Music Festival, a month-long, multi-venue concert series. JIFF is designed to compliment the music festival by presenting films that celebrate music and musicians.

JIFF will take place at the Bob Boldrick Theatre located inside the Carson City Community Center in Carson City, Nevada on August 20-22, 2019. An awards ceremony will be held at the conclusion of the Festival. Tickets are available for purchase in advance and at the door.

In order to qualify, narrative films (features and shorts) must in some way incorporate musical themes, such as storylines that focus on musicians or performers or songwriters, music-oriented settings or locations, or other celebrations of music. If you're not sure about your film qualifying, please feel free to send any questions you might have to the Festival.

Documentary films (features and shorts) must focus on real life stories of musicians or performers or songwriters, or include stories about music-oriented events, settings or locations, or otherwise celebrate real life music and musical events in some way.

Music videos are self-explanatory and may not exceed seven and one-half (7-1/2) minutes in length.

There are no genre restrictions in any category.

JIFF's partnership with Jazz and Beyond, the annual month-long music festival, has earned us the nickname "Beyond Jazz and Beyond," as JIFF starts the week following the close of their festival. JIFF will host several activities centered on the visiting filmmakers. More events and other details will be added as the festival dates grow closer.

Awards and prizes will be presented to the winning films in each category. Films will be judged by a panel of music industry professionals and winners from previous years. The full list of judges will be published prior to the start of the Festival. All decisions made by the judges will be considered final.
