Granatum Short Film Fest is a summer series of short film showcase based in Denton, Texas. We primarily focus on welcoming Texas filmmakers to our engaging community. The event includes curation of local artists and a live music performance. The following is a testimonial from a local filmmaker who was a part of our event in the summer of 2015.

"Granatum has taking every aspect of the film making/art community and made it into the perfect social gathering. The atmosphere of the event was filled with the positive energy of so many creative minds. I give the utmost respect and gratitude to the crew for putting together such a professional and energetic gathering. I enjoyed it so much I plan to help out as much as possible for the next event. It has been one of the most fun and productive screenings I have attended this year! Great job and may the Granatum showcase continue!"

What the Short Film Programmer is looking for:
- Various production styles including animation, documentary, experimental, or narrative works produced by filmmakers based in Texas
- Works in progress can be submitted, but a digital copy must be received within a week of the event.
- Suggested length is 4 - 12 minutes, but that’s not an absolute requirement. Works over 20 minutes are not likely to be accepted.

    Always a joy when my film is selected in my home state. Hope to be part of this Festival next year.
