Do you want a chance to see your film on the big screen?
We’re putting together a shorts collection and we want to watch your film. We’ll pick our favorites and show them on Monday, November 17. Time TBD (somewhere around 8 & 9pm).
We believe in the big-screen experience and feel that it is important that auteurs know what their films look like on screen. That’s why we’re opening our big theater up to local filmmakers — students, professionals, or weekend zombie warriors — for one night. And without a submission fee!
How to get involved:
Get your film to us by Friday, October 31 @ 6pm. (We extended the deadline from the 24th.)
Drop your short off at the box office from 10am to 8pm M–F (see our film schedule for weekend hours). Bring them on a disk or jump drive (drive preferred — we’ll give it back). Formats accepted: .mov, .mp4, 720 or 1080p preferred.
Please include the following:
>Your name & address
>Email & phone number
>Movie title & runtime
Please send an email to Steve with the above information, too. (We're using the free version of DB and we don't have a lot of space so we want to make sure we got it.)
We hope to get acceptance emails out at least a week before the screening.
You have to live in Mid-Missouri. You should plan on attending, if you can.
We’re looking for films no longer than 11 minutes. Though, if you have a 20-minute movie that you think is awesome, send it in and we’ll take a look at it. And if you’d like to submit a clip from your feature or work-in-progress, that’s fine too. (Please don't think of the 11-minute runtime as a goal for your filmmaking process. Your film should be as long or short as it needs to be to tell your story. We love three-minute movies!)
You can submit multiple films.
Your film should be appropriate for a general audience...an R rating is fine.
The TBD'd November screening is free and open to the public.
Accepted filmmakers will be put on a guest list with a +1.
There will be a discussion and Q&A after the program.
