Tip- we've found that our audiences love short films that are joyful and direct & to the point (around 5 mins & under is the best result). The shorter the better! Finalists must have liked the Joy House Film Festival Facebook page & support the festival, in order to be eligible to receive prizes. If you happen to submit a longer film, if selected we will request you to edit it to 10 mins or under due to strict cinema time requirements for the whole festival.
