Festival Name: CUT! Film Festival
Location: Santa Monica, CA, United States
The idea of the festival developing began simply from their desire to create a new event after their "sabbatical" from event planning, following the Jacks or Better Celebrity Poker Tournament in 2005. Many ideas were tossed around, but after a discussion about how certain genres of movies are not promoted as strongly in Hollywood, the idea for CUT! began to take shape. They wanted to devote a weekend event specifically around movies and how they were made, with the minds behind the films there to tell the story.
Having several years experience in event planning, they decided to pool their resources and start organizing on their own events with the central goal in mind of helping out children's charities. They are, after all, the future of this planet and more precious than any resource this world can produce.
