MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Our mission is to create a forum where filmmakers can present a showcase of their short films and create professional networking opportunities. Our goal is to bring back the art of the short film to the Jersey Shore area.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

There have been festivals in the area in the past that have closed down or moved away. There are many other film festivals in the state of New Jersey but they are not close to the shore area in Central New Jersey. There have been past festivals that focuses mostly on feature films but what about that filmmaker who hasn't been able to make one yet. The artist who created a short film but is unable to show it or showcase their work. This is where we come in to the picture. We encourage the filmmakers who have short films of any length from 1 minute all the way up to 45 minute shorts to enter our festival.

(We have low entry fees so it could be affordable. We need to raise money for the festival so as a festival we can not waive any entry fees, so please do not ask, thank you.)

We prefer for all film submission to be sent over through the internet instead of on DVD, we have moved away from the DVD at this time, thank you.
