While remaining committed to celebrating the Independent Filmmaker and promoting their works of art, the Waterfront organization has restructured its operations. The non-profit has transitioned from hosting an annual 4-day festival to operating a new year-round hub known as the Waterfront Film Studio - a screening and event facility created to offer a supportive venue for independent filmmakers, creative causes and non-profits to showcase their film and digital media projects and events.
Building off Waterfront's recognized hospitality, fun, and high quality events that made the Film Festival amazingly successful, the future of Waterfront involves strategic partnerships with other organizations, filmmakers and artists to create opportunities to further our mission of raising awareness for art, education and philanthropic endeavors through the magic of film.
