Best "Made in Houston" Project for 2011




Since we started our publication back in January of 2008 we have seen a lot of filmmakers come and go. With them, they took their films into obscurity or, if they were lucky, they have moved on to make bigger and better movie or Television projects.

In September of 2012 in association with the 14th Annual 2012 Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival  we "recognized" the Best "Made in Houston" Independent TV/Film for 2011.  It was a huge success. In early December of 2011, we put a call out for nominations on our F**ebook, Twitter and Linkedin accounts, as well as our other social network accounts. And, Houston Movie makers submitted their films for one of the hard and most exclusive contest IN HOUSTON. 

All films/TV projects must have been MADE in the Houston Metroplex and Greater area AND Released for public consumption in 2011.

The Films were assessed for Qualification, viewed by our team and a vote was cast for Best 2011 "Made in Houston" Independent TV/Film Project.

Using the stringent TSIRS we will pick the best film in several categories and recognize those films as the
