Category Rules

For the international entry category, Show Me Shorts is seeking films made anywhere in the world (outside New Zealand) within the last two years, that are between 2 and 20 minutes long. These films are screened alongside the NZ films in our programme. They compete for the Best International Film Award and the People's Choice Award. If your film has been made by or features New Zealanders you may also qualify for additional awards. Check this web page for further details: http://www.showmeshorts.co.nz/the-awards/awards-criteria/
