Mosaix is a programming initiative of Walton Arts Center (Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA) designed to explore Northwest Arkansas’ diverse and beautiful cultural mosaic. Mosaix programming is multi-disciplinary, multi-genre, and multi-cultural. Mosaix’s Indie Films South Asia, curated by the Fayetteville Film Fest, will showcase authentic voices through the short films of South Asian filmmakers.


1) All films in competition must have been completed after June 1, 2016.

2) The competition is open to short films only. Films with a running time over 40 minutes will not be considered.

3) All films submitted are subject to use for marketing purposes during and after the festival, in part or in its entirety, unless you request to opt-out.

4) Mosaix reserves the right to utilize any submitted material from this year's festival to promote future events produced by Mosaix. Short films that are selected for inclusion in the festival are required to provide a high resolution still for marketing purposes.

5) Mosaix does not pay rental or screening fees.

6) Films may be screened more than once during the Festival and at the Festival's discretion for future Mosaix events.

7) Mosaix reserves the right to change the category of any submission, to balance the program and give filmmakers the best chance of recognition for their work.

8) Mosaix only waives submission fees in extreme situations. We have tried to keep the submission fees low, but feel that waiving fees favors certain filmmakers over others. Please only request a fee waiver if your situation warrants extraordinary consideration.

9) Mosaix Board Members with films for competition cannot serve on either the Jury or Programming committee.

10) Mosaix screens films as downloadable digital files (such as .mov) during the festival. If your film MUST be screened as a Blu Ray, it is the filmmakers responsibility to ship TWO copies of the Blue Ray discs in container that is clearly labeled with the title, filmmaker’s name, phone number and email and FFF ID number. Please check your disc to make sure it plays in its entirety on consumer Blu Ray players. Screening discs will not be returned unless a return envelope with sufficient postage is provided. If accepted to the Fest, a press kit is highly recommended. We will communicate any problems with submissions, but the festival will not be held responsible for any technical failures that prevent your film from being judged.
