EXTREMELY SHORTS FILM FESTIVAL

SUBMIT YOUR SHORT FILM!

Regular Deadline: March 1, 2019
Late Deadline: March 21, 2019
Festival Dates: May 17-18, 2019

Established in 1998, Aurora Picture Show's Extremely Shorts Film Festival is an annual juried festival showcasing adventurous, three-minutes-or-shorter films and videos from around the world. The short format encourages our eclectic festival programs–including narrative, experimental, documentary, and animated works. Each year, a different guest juror (esteemed filmmaker or arts curator) selects 20-25 mini-masterpieces to be shown at a two day screening event. One film will be given a Juror's Choice cash award ($225) and one will be awarded the Audience Choice cash award ($225).
