A good question has come up about "fees" to have the chance to win the medal 🏅 or the staff. Especially since they cost so much to strike and have poured. There are no fees to enter the Science Competition, nor any other hidden cash requests or payments. The contest and prizes are free. The Émilie du Châtelet Staff of Polymaths is being commissioned with Will King of Kings Forge (Master Armorer known worldwide) to be hand-cast and fired from metal and earth https://kingsforgeandmuzzleloading.com/

This festival is designed to help films get made. We bear the cost of all streaming programming and advertising of the festival and onsite costs in our theater and property, complete with complimentary food and drink on the event nights. Unlike many others in the fact that small shorts entered are driving towards selling their main - full-length film. Entries should be focused on getting funded (for example, $70 million needed) and therefore are slightly commercialized with financial projections, predicted market success, and their believed award-winning capabilities to prove their worth to angel funds, private family offices, corporate investors, and investment bankers. We also recognize and celebrate all of the films and series made about the first families and White House stories - positive or negative. We focus on encouraging aspiring films to get funded and picked up as full-length feature productions by outside investors. ENTER NOW AT FilmFreeway!
More information on our goals, board, trustees, and Ambassadors is at www.uspsc.org, with over 50 members worldwide. Our alumni of the White House are close to 80,000, and our alumni, specifically from the White House Military Office, are about 50,000 military veterans of all services.
We celebrate 250 years of service to protecting and serving the American Presidency and First Families. Our exhibits and summits recognize all of the Presidents of the United States under our goals, vision, and mission statements. ENTER NOW AT FilmFreeway!
The USPSC International Film Festival is a deluxe festival organized in memory of Ronald Reagan and his spouse Nancy Davis (both renowned Hollywood actors), for their immense contribution to cinema, filmmaking, governance, and leadership. We also recognize and celebrate all of the films and series made about the first families and White House stories. ENTER NOW AT FilmFreeway!
Born February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Ill., Reagan was the 40th President of America between 1981--89. Aside from being ranked among the middle to upper tier of American presidents by historians and scholars, Reagan was a famed Hollywood actor before entering into politics. He started professional acting in 1937. In his career as a movie actor, he appeared in more than 50 films and was twice president of the Screen Actors Guild SAG (1947–52, 1959–60). Ronald Reagan spent nearly 30 years acting in feature films and television, as well as providing narration for numerous documentaries, both short and feature-length. He died on June 5, 2004, at the age of 93.
His spouse (second spouse till his death), Nancy Davis Reagan (July 6, 1921--March 6, 2016), was also a film and television actress and First Lady of California and the United States. Nancy Reagan worked in stage, film, and television productions. She made eleven films in all, including three after her marriage and many television appearances up to her retirement in 1962. She and Reagan appeared together in her last film, 'Hellcats of the Navy,' 1956. She joined the heavenly choir at the age of 94.
This festival is instituted in their memory and to welcome and honor filmmakers and storytellers across all cultures globally. The projects for submission do not necessarily have to be storied on the back of Reagan and/ or his wife's life, their personal ideologies, or political philosophies. Both projects about them or not, irrespective of storyline or genre, stand a fair chance of winning a prize in their respective categories. All films submitted are encouraged to be short - so as to not infringe upon creativity too much and at 20 minutes or less. Stories that are untold about the White House, Camp David, Marine One, and Air Force One are highly encouraged, and this includes White House staff stories.
March 4, the marriage anniversary of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, is marked as the set date for the film festival annually. You're welcome to enter the USPSC International Film Festival NOW! ENTER NOW AT FilmFreeway!
Our distinguished judges and panel will decide all winners, as well as a People's Choice Award, will be had. See our judges and licensed competitions here: https://theinnofthepatriots.com/licensed-competitions
What's your link to the film industry? We are amateur film industry colleagues with family who are members of SAG AFTRA and have utilized SAG AFTRA for many contracts in the past. Charese Mongiello is a member of SAG and a very noted Script Supervisor of over 100 movies and projects. Martin Mongiello worked for Kathleen Kennedy as her Estate Manager, and Kathy is now the CEO of LucasFilm. Joe Manganiello is a distant cousin of Magic Mike fame and Spiderman; Prince Kojo-Hilton is a famed movie maker and set designer, and artist with works featured in the National Gallery of Art in Ghana. We have produced over 350 videos and shorts in 28 years' time, with about 100 featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX, and CNN. We have been using film to showcase negative and positive acts and events of the Presidency of America. We welcome all kinds of shorts. Some of our work is featured here: https://mongielloassociates.com/movies-videos-streaming
Isn't the USPSC a filthy disgrace for even mentioning Reagan? The USPSC and associated museum interpret and highlight all of the Presidents and First Ladies of the United States. While people on museum tours have requested we strip out, remove, and destroy certain exhibits in glass and online of particular members of the White House, we continue to build positive and negative exhibits on all of the families. A recent example was our very negative showcase of Thomas Jefferson stealing from Italy as an Ambassador and committing criminal acts, Jimmy Carter appearing in Playboy Magazine, Rose Cleveland - the first lesbian First Lady of the USA, John Quincy Adams's hate of different skin colors people being in love and the new exhibition - OTHELLO IS DISGUSTING/WHAT PRESIDENT JOHN QUINCY ADAMS SAID AND WROTE. Any negative film against the Reagans is welcomed for submittal and acceptance. We love introspection and investigation.
But isn't your establishment a joke and disgusting with your WOKE fake news of allowing the LGBTQIA community to sleep in the museum lodging? We have welcomed the LGBTQIA community into our charter and mission for over 50 years of work. We clearly list our lodging element for overnight guests at The Inn of the Patriots, LLC as LGBTQIA Friendly on AirB&B, and it is against American law to exclude any kind of guest due to sexual preference. Any guest on the property making statements out loud against the LGBTQIA community will be escorted off of the premises by security personnel and introduced to armed law enforcement officers hired to patrol our site from the Cleveland County Sheriff's Department. For decades, we have showcased the full LGBTQIA community to the world and the truth of the Rainbow Coalition. Our episode on First Lady Rose Cleveland is very highly watched. Guests should expect to see and meet our friends as we are members of the Shelby PRIDE group and fly the Rainbow Flag in front of the museum.
Well, your support of the LGBTQIA community makes me sick, and the Mongiello family that manages the property attending PRIDE events is disgusting: Thanks, that's not really a question, but okay, the Mongiellos understand your opinion and respect your private religious beliefs. Please respect our valid and legal beliefs that are supported by the laws of America, the UN, and have been ratified across the world by the countries of the UN. They do not practice your beliefs, and both of them, having served in the US Military, will defend to their death the rights of the LGBTQIA community and the love they hold for all PRIDE members.
Do you have a signed contract to broadcast? Yes, we have a signed legal contract with all legal rights via Linkedin, Streamyard, Hopin of England, associates rights to LIVE stream to YouTube, X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, and streaming licenses afforded to viewers. We hold no strikes via YouTube for infringement and own numerous intellectual properties with the Writers Guild of America East, the Library of Congress, and the US Patent and Trademark Office. We support the strikes held for our fellow writers, authors, and actors. All broadcasts on CBS, PBS, ABC, NBC, the TODAY Show, FOX, CNN, NHK Tokyo, Vitaya, and Brussels TV have occurred properly via broadcast licenses. Additionally, we have been featured in 164 newspapers and magazines on six continents.
Can I provide a cash prize in my name or foundation to the winners? You may personally work with our attorneys to place funds into an IOLTA or IOLA account which would be awarded in your name. We are not interested in making any money from the festival. Any surplus of money from entry fees will be given as a cash bonus to winners. At present, we are offering a gold chalice, silver medal, and bronze plaque along with provisions of cash to facilitate such awards overseas, in any country.
I was looking for big-time cash prizes of $10k to $200k. This film festival is a rip-off joke, and Americans make me sick! Thank you for your feedback, we are not offering large cash sums like what you mention, but perhaps, other festivals are? As a small group of filmmakers honing and honoring our craft, we are proud to represent 205 countries and territories people's that live in America with all kinds of customs, languages spoken, heritage, and religions. The United States Presidential Service Center welcomes all filmmakers in fellowship, kindness, and friendliness. Our hallmark has always been the act of caring.
We are honored to see the celebration of your work!
· Please keep your good shorts to 20 minutes or less.
· All entries must be in English or have English subtitles.
· Please submit all entries through FilmFreeway.
· Entry fees are non-refundable.
· Shorts entered can include budgetary needs IN THE SHORT SUBMITTED (a critical difference in HOW THIS FILM FESTIVAL is different), expected business success, and showcase viability for financial achievement. This helps potential investors to understand why your short SHOULD BE FUNDED and made into a full-length feature film.
By participating in the USPSC International Film Festival, artists/directors grant the festival the right to use the entire short, still frames of their submitted and selected works for promotional purposes on the festival's website, TV programs, visual art websites, and event venues. This festival is about selling your major film idea and getting funded. Indeed, the audience of investors should be delighted.
Additionally, the artist/director grants the following authorizations:
-The use of the entire short for promotion worldwide, forever, or until such times that circumstances negate this commitment. If your major film is made, we will own nothing of that. That deal would be between you and the financier. We would hold NO RIGHTS to your full-length feature film.
-Inclusion of the film in the USPSC International Film Festival's commercial online archive.
-Screening of the film at film festivals affiliated with the USPSC International Film Festival's partner networks.
-Onsite showcase in our theater at the Presidential Center.
-Originality: Films submitted should be the original work of the filmmakers, and they should hold the necessary rights to all elements included in the film and model releases. The person submitting has full rights to submit their short.
-Copyrights: Filmmakers must have obtained all necessary copyrights and permissions for any music, images, or other copyrighted material used in the film.
-Entrants are encouraged to showcase how their ultimate, full-length feature film will have ROI for an investment fund, where it will do best (either in geographic theaters or on a particular streaming network) to achieve profitability. Since shorts are limited to 20 minutes or less, one or two minutes of the short can address these Paramount issues. These may include the major request for funding, the total amount, marketing, branding, promotion, publicity, advertising, and sales cycle of the proposed large movie and how it shall use adrenaline to punch forward, leaping into the air swinging forward to attain cash rich status for the benefit of investors and ultimately - consumer product good sales. Consumer product goods (CPG) that are mass replicated and sold can be showcased in a forward-looking financial direction or reversed for the filmmaker and his/her large movie.
1. Explain a Reverse Situation: The recent Barbie movie spent 64 years of toys and dolls when the first movie was made in 2023. The CPG sales attained are in the billions.
2. Explain a Forward Situation: Diolase Nzinga Ramazani decides he will make a film about President Obama's summit held in Africa and cuts an 18-minute long short showcasing theater sales projecting 32 African countries using English with French subtitles and a streaming proposal with Netflix. His CPG offering would be a commemorative coin struck and sold.
Featuring new films made about the American Presidency and White House events - positive or negative!
