Our Call for Entries opened on September 15 and will close at 4:30 pm on Monday, December 17. Guidelines and submission form can be found on our Submit page. We don’t charge a submission fee and we pay screening fees for selected films.
For our 2012 fest, we received 250 submissions from 34 countries and considered another 750 films that were seen at other festivals or requested for consideration. From 1,000 films, we put together a program of 101 short films from 26 countries. We hope to have a larger program in 2013.
Award-winning Los Angeles filmmaker Michelle Steffes said the following about our last fest: “I thought the programming was fantastic. I’ve never been to a festival with such consistently great programming.”
