IMPORTANT UPDATE - 3/26/2020:
Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 restrictions in place and for the safety of our community, this year's Project Involve Showcase will be transitioning from a live into an online-only event. Anyone who has previously submitted and does not wish to be considered for the online showcase may withdraw their application. By submitting your film, you agree to have an online version of your film available for a short window (exact dates in May TBD) during the online showcase if it is selected for the program. Access to the selected films for the 2020 showcase will be free but private and provided only to guests who RSVP. More details regarding the RSVP procedure, viewing platform, and intro/Q&A to follow. We look forward to celebrating the work of the Project Involve community with all of you.

Film Independent is inviting all Project Involve Fellows (past and present) to submit their short films or music videos for consideration for our annual Project Involve Showcase.

This exciting event is aimed at exposing the film industry to Film Independent's Project Involve and the hot new talents we cultivate. It’s also a time for our Fellows to network and re- connect.

Submissions are open until April 10th, 2020. Please contact projectinvolveshowcase@gmail.com for a waiver code to apply in that period if you are a current or prior Project Involve fellow.

    The PI showcase is amazing ! Every year I'm blown away by the quality of the films and the thoughtfulness of the curation. It's amazing how Film Independent really supports current and past PI fellows even beyond the completion of the program. It's a true film family!

    The showcase was an amazing experience! Film Independent does a wonderful job curating the showcase and treated filmmakers and their guest to a wonderful time. Also, there is nothing better than projecting on that lovely Academy screen!
