The itsFILM.com International Short Film Competition was created to help locate fresh new voices in filmmaking, and give them the tools and promotional opportunities they deserve.


The itsFILM.com Online Magazine and Industry Network is proud to sponsor this festival.

Our Overall Winner will receive a trip to the 2014 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL, where his/her short film will be featured at an industry networking event in the heart of the fest.

All winners will receive film gear, film production software, industry site memberships and well-deserved industry exposure.
