Category Rules

“Reality changes; in order to represent it, modes of
representation must change.”
~Bertolt Brecht

As with the full-length documentary category, the short category stands by the same principles of researching and communicating the truth of a given subject in a creative way that enhances the understanding. These submissions can be just as powerful as full length submissions because they are straight to the point!

Specific Rules for this Category:
•Maintain the GRFF rules and terms/conditions
•Maximum total run time of 40 minutes
