Grand Motoring Film Festival Expands

For the first time, annual festival will include a juried competition to find the finest automotive films.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, JUNE 1, 2022 – This year’s Grand Motoring Film Festival will once again raise the bar for fans of the cinematic and automotive arts. For the first time, the festival is actively seeking out bold new cinematic explorations of the automotive arts, regardless of length or format, to be judged by a panel of experts for the top prize of the event.

“The festival has always been a way for us to celebrate that intersection between cars and film, so it’s a genuine thrill to extend that celebration to the filmmakers themselves,” said GMFF founder Guy Smith. 

CALL FOR ENTRIES!   Grand Motoring Film Festival finalists and winners will represent the best documentaries, web videos, brand films, TV shows and more, and entries across the landscape of automotive cinema are invited to submit. Films and videos will be reviewed by an esteemed group of judges representing film and television, automotive, and media industries with awards to be given out on November 3, 2022.

Among judges announced so far, you’ll find luminaries like former editor and publisher of Autoweek Dutch Mandell, Pixar Animation Studios Creative Director of Franchise Jay Ward, “Death Race 2000” star Simone Griffeth and founder and senior editor Ben Branch. 

The sixth annual Grand Motoring Film Festival will be held November 3, 2022 at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Hilton Head Island. Filmmakers looking to submit their works can visit FILMFREEWAY.COM
