We’ll send you a congratulatory email if we accept your film to air on our show. You will also be asked to submit a high res version of your film as well as digital files of any publicity stills, posters, artwork, and press (if applicable).

What kind of film can I submit and is there a specific length it needs to be?

We accept films of all genres – documentary, narrative, experimental, music video (filmmaker must have musical rights), and animation. The only requirement is it needs to be under 30 mins and you own the rights to the content in your film.

Will I be interviewed if my film is accepted?

Most likely yes! A signature of our show is not just screening shorts but also filmmaker interviews so we can put a face and an experience to the films we show. We try to get interviews with most of our filmmakers and if can’t get to you we may send you questions & ask you interview yourself!
