Our mission at Validate Yourself Film Festival is to create and provide a credible and accessible opportunity for aspiring and talented filmmakers. 

The Validate Yourself Film Festival offers a medium in which Independent Filmmakers may showcase their work nationally and internationally. The vision for the festival has been our passion to educate filmmakers on sense of self-worth & artistic ability without other's approval or validation.

The reason why we started this film festival was simply because as filmmakers, We did not like how some festivals treated us. Therefore we decided to be a part of the solution.

You have the opportunity to enter any festival, there are thousands out there, so when you choose us, we don't take that lightly. We will give your film all of our attention in the screening process. We look forward to seeing your work.
