SHORT FILMS

Films can be as short as you like however the ideal maximum running time should be 12 to 18 minutes. This event is dedicated to the art of the short. We will look at films that run a minute or two longer than that and will consider them if their quality is high enough.

Shorts can be horror, science fiction and fantasy, and can be a mixture of live action, animation and music video.

Short Film Exhibition Format
Films can be filmed on any format but entries must be presented as download (preferred), or on DVD or CD-ROM for consideration. The Same for Exhibition; however if submitting via DVD or CD-ROM, we request two copies
