Category Rules

The Black Maria Film Festival seeks diverse, expressive, and passionate short films and videos by independent makers. The festival is named after Thomas Edison's motion picture studio, and is known for its support of spirited, cutting edge, and otherwise singular films.

The Black Maria Film Festival is committed to works that explore the potential of the medium to illuminate, provoke, enrich, and engage viewers. Imaginative and revelatory films are sought including work that provides insight into the human condition and political, social, and environmental issues, and work that addresses the lives of people with disabilities.
