What began as gimmick, has become an empowering movement that democratizes film, connects art and community, and encourages and develops the most important aspect of filmmaking: writing. When I graduated college I wanted to write and direct films. It took me 15 years to make my first film. I believe that is too long so I set out to try and expedite the process for the next generation. An innovative platform can help discover and improve filmmaking in a completely new way.
Scott Galloway has written, directed and produced feature films that have been released theatrically throughout the world, broadcast nationally and showcased at film festivals from Cannes to Kenya. He has also written, directed, and produced more than 800 television shows for fourteen different networks. His work has won Audience Choice, Emmys, New York Film and Television, Cine Golden Eagle and Telly awards. He has been selected as a feature director for the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers and as a delegate for the American Documentary Showcase, a U.S. Department of State initiative featuring documentary filmmakers and their films said to represent the best in American documentary filmmaking.
In 2014, Galloway created the 100 Words Film Festival. The mission of the festival is to democratize film for all professional and student filmmakers. The inaugural festival sold out and premiered 30 films made by filmmakers from across the country.
