MW Area News is excited to announce sponsorship of the upcoming 2nd Annual Crazy About Film Festival.

This unique event will run August 20-22nd and will feature some of the greatest filmmaking talent from all over the world. Storied historic venues across the city will be transformed into pop-up cinemas to screen a total of 35 films throughout the weekend.

​The festival kicks off Friday Night with a Western themed screening and launch party at the Hole in the Wall Biergarten. 

​On Saturday, the Crazy Water Plaza will host the Crazy About Short Film Competition. 

“I’m so excited for this event.” Says Kaspar. “We received over 3200 submissions for this year’s contest. We narrowed that field down to a total of 32 and every single one of them are absolute gems. What I really love about this contest is that our audience will serve as the judges; by voting for their favorite film they will crown the champion of this year’s festival.”

​The fun continues Saturday night at Coffee and Cocktails where Zak Webb will provide a unique musical experience as he belts out the tunes from your favorite movie soundtracks. 

On Sunday, the Mineral Wells Women’s Club will host a series of filmmaking masterclasses. The Commercial Masterclass will teach small business owners to film their own promotional content. The Location Masterclass will be a guide for filmmakers interested in usingMineral Wells’ unique architecture and beautiful landscape as the setting for their next project.

The festival wraps up Sunday evening at the Women’s Club with the World Premiere of Mimi and Me for 53. This film tells the story of Mimi Anderson, a grandmother from Scotland who is attempting to smash the World Record for running coast to coast across the United States. The current record is 69 days.
