Though Beaufort may be small, their film festival has been around longer than either of Charleston’s. Our neighbors to the south are now accepting entries for the fifth Beaufort International Film Festival. Last year they had more than 200 entries from 24 countries. You can submit your film for the early bird deadline by July 31; the final deadline is Nov. 15. The festival itself takes place in mid-February 2011. For more information, visit
