COLOSSAL CINEMATIC SHOWCASE is a Showcase that twice a year presents a 2-hour screening of short movies on the big screen. We are a red carpet event, so dress up, get your picture taken, and see some movies.

We aren't a believer in awards and prizes. We all win by encouraging each other's creativity.

We are developing a program of shorts, 1 minute to 20 minutes long.

We primarily show the work of Northwest movie makers - we're in Boise, Idaho, but are open to movies from anywhere.

We don't care where or when your movie was shot. We don't care if it's been shown somewhere else.

We are an R rated event open to all genres.

We will open for submissions June 1, 2023 to August 15 2023 for the November 5, 2023 Showcase.

When you submit your movie for the Showcase please include the standard Film Maker packet: Director's bio, a headshot of the Director(s), any 'behind-the-scenes' stills you might have.

    Much like the state it calls home, Colossal Cinematic Showcase is a gem of an event. Well organized and attended, with a wonderfully chill "networking" after-party, this one-day event was well worth attending. Melina and Larry made everyone feel at home, and the selection of shorts was diverse and well-planned.
