DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.

We accept films in ALL genres, and program screenings so audiences see as many different types of films as possible.

MISSION & OBJECTIVE

DC Shorts champions short filmmaking.

Recently named the Coolest Short Film Festival by Moviemaker Magazine, the DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition is the largest short film event on the East Coast of the United States. In 2013, we screened 152 films from 21 countries in 18 unique showcases that played over 11 days to a total audience of 9.300 people. We also hosted a table read of six screenplays, and awarded the winner an incredible prize of $2,000.

• Our main judging criteria is STORY. Do you have an interesting, original story about developed, well-written characters? If so, then you are a good fit for us.

• We screen ALL GENRES and styles of films.

• We screen films from :30 seconds to 20 minutes. Longer films may be considered, but are generally difficult to program. We will not consider any film over 30:00.

• ALL ENTRANTS RECEIVE WRITTEN FEEDBACK from the selection panel. This information has been invaluable to thousands of past entrants – and is the reason we have been a top pick of Moviemaker Magazine year after year.

• Films that screened at past DC Shorts Film Festivals have gone on win countless other competitions, including the Academy Awards.

• Washington, DC has some of the most sophisticated audiences in the world. In a city with over 70 film festivals a year, DC Shorts continues to be a dominant force for film distribution in the region.

• The DC Shorts Film Festival is the LARGEST SHORT FILM EVENT on the East Coast of the United States.
