Local filmmakers!

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

You can also send your film to us with Dropbox (if it's under 2 GB). Send it to [email protected]

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.
