The Unofficial Google+ Film Festival (UGPFF) will launch its three day online and interactive festival worldwide this December 13th. The festival, which is the first international film festival to simultaneously audiences with online and offline screenings around the world, will be available through Google+  and feature a variety of film blocks, industry panel discussions and interactive Q&A's with filmmakers from the curated selection of new short films and web series.

"This year's festival presents a tremendous opportunity for filmmakers to connect with fans as well as the industry.  Participating filmmakers from global locations will be able to answer questions following each screening in a Q&A session, without needing to leave the comforts of their homes," said UGPFF founder Adam J. Cohen.  "We are empowering a community of passionate creators to expand their audience online and embrace their growing digital distribution opportunities."

In addition to the festival's activities, for the first time this year Indiewire's parent company Snagfilms has become an integrated partner and will offer worldwide digital distribution to participating filmmakers. Selected short films and web series will be available to the public immediately after their festival debut.

Filmmakers interested in submitting their own short films or web series for consideration can submit through Withoutabox or directly at UGPFF now through November 4, 2013
