Call For Entries Now Underway!
New Date: In previous years the festival has kicked off in September; however, this year, the festival has been moved to March 6-7, 2020.
New Line-Up and Special Guests: We are excited to present a full line-up of short films as well as longer running films in both the narrative and documentary formats. Special guests will also be part of this year’s festival… Watch for Announcements!
Entry Fees Unchanged: We know how hard filmmakers work and how much of a financial burden independent filmmaking can be; therefore, entry fees will not increase this year. Submit your film today and take advantage of Early Bird Rates!
SHORT FILMS – Submit Your Short Film Today! Student and adult filmmakers are welcome to submit their short film – up to 15-minutes in length.
LONGER THAN SHORT – For the extended short film – between 15-30 minutes (15:01 to 29:59 to be exact)
MEDIUM-LENGTH FILMS – Tell your story in 30-50 minutes. Not quite a full-length feature film, but a big film project indeed.
We know how much time and effort goes into every film project and we want to showcase as many outstanding films as possible. Due to time constraints, only a LIMITED NUMBER of longer films will be selected for film screenings.
SCREENINGS will take place Friday & Saturday, March 6 & 7, 2020
AWARDS: An esteemed panel of judges will chose the top films in a variety of categories and cash prizes will be awarded to both adult and student filmmakers.
