Due to the unprecedented Coronavirus crisis and the challenging times, we are opening up this FREE CATEGORY for all filmmakers and creators (free to submit). We are looking for 1 minute shorts in any digital format (including films shot on smart phones or any mobile device – from documentary to narrative to animation and experimental works). Each week we will select the best work and screen it all over our social media channels, and the top three shorts that get most likes will screen at our 2020 Festival, where they will compete for over $5,000 in prizes.
Our mission is to promote films and videos that further the art of storytelling by championing the work of writers, filmmakers, and all artists who use visual language to tell stories. We showcase films that dissent radically in form, technique, or content from the mainstream and present adventurous works that challenge commercial and audience expectations.
