Narrative and Documentary features over 40 minutes in length, made by NON-FIRST-TIME feature filmmakers, with no distribution. We are looking for breakthrough films from breakout directors who demonstrate a determined vision of filmmaking that is instinctively becoming their own. These artists continue to push boundaries in genre and form, and are beacons of light that predict the future of film. Our goal is to help daring and resilient filmmakers establish their voice, connect with bigger audiences and take their well-deserved place on the world cinema stage. Less

Non-narrative work up to 40 minutes in length. We realize that "experimental" is a subjective and vague term, but we don't want to allow the failure of language to keep us from programming films that do not fit into other categories. Send us your conceptual, abstract, graphic, didactic, or unclassifiable films! Works that blur the lines of categorization will be shared with other programming committees. Less
