DC Film Fest Accepting Entries

January 29, 2010

The DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competitions are accepting entries for the 2010 events!

The DC Shorts Film Festival (September 9-16, 2010) 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 of every genre and niche 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.  Cash prizes and all entries receive judges’ feedback!

The DC Shorts Screenplay Competition(October 2010) is a very different kind of screenwriting competition. A panel of judges consisting of filmmakers, screenwriters and critics will review and provide coverage (feedback) for scripts of 15 pages or less. 5 – 7 finalists will be featured during ScriptDC – a weekend of screenwriting events for DC regional writer and filmmakers, where their scripts will be read in front of a live audience – and one will walk away with $2,000 to shoot their project!  All entries receive the judges’ feedback!

Filmmakers on a budget – want to save a few bucks?  Apply before the Early Bird deadline (February 15), but send your film anytime before the materials deadline (May 14).  You could save as much as $40 off the entry fees!

Send in your short films and screenplays!  Early bird deadline is February 15.
