We are looking for creative, innovative, thought-provoking and entertaining independent films. We are especially interested in films made in Iowa and the Midwest. The festival has showcased short films, feature-length dramatic films, documentaries as well as student films.

Awards will be presented for Best Short, Best Feature, Best Documentary, Critic's Choice, and others depending on what gets submitted.

Movies must have been created (finished post-production) since January 2016. Movies outside of this time frame may be submitted for screening consideration but will not be eligible for awards.
