  NEW FILM SUBMISSION CATEGORY ADDED! 

NOW ACCEPTING "IN-BETWEEN TIME" FILMS TILL END OF AUGUST!!!

That's right! Due to overwhelming response we are now accepting films OVER 7 MINUTES and films UP TO 70 MINUTES. What does this mean, you ask? It means if you are over the 7 minute short time frame, you are forgiven and accepted! Also, if your film does not quite reach the 75 minute mark for features, you are also accepted. This opens up opportunities for those films that didn't quite match our time restraint criteria.

NOTE: If your film is 7 minites or under, or 75 minutes or longer, you must still abide by the SHORTS and FEATURES film rules.
