Film festival call for submissions
The Yellow Springs Short Film Festival is now accepting entries from local filmmakers
The Little Art Theatre, a nonprofit single-screen movie house in Yellow Springs, will host the Second Annual Yellow Springs Short Film Festival on Saturday, February 5, 2011 at 1 p.m. The program will be repeated on Sunday, February 6 at 1 p.m.
The festival will include short films that showcase the best of local filmmaking talent, from students to professionals to everyone in between and will feature audience choice awards for the most popular films.
We are now accepting submissions of short films for the festival. This year we are limiting submission to finished films only. The early deadline for entry is Friday, December 17, 2010 and the regular deadline is Friday, January 7, 2011. The entry fee is $5 for the early deadline and $10 for the regular deadline; entry date to be determined by postmark.
To be considered for entry, the majority of each film must have been shot in one of the following counties: Greene, Montgomery, Clark, Madison, Fayette, Clinton, or Warren. Exceptions may be made if a filmmaker from one of those counties shot their film elsewhere. Films should be no longer than 15 minutes in length. We will allow for a 1 or 2 minute leeway to suit the filmmaker’s vision.
