*All films selected for screening will receive graded rubrics from our judges.
This year we are accepting films that are the creation of Virginia residents OR have been shot primarily in Virginia as well as a selection of East Coast films.
**East Coast Films** will be judged in their own category and will only be considered for screening if they have at least one member attending the festival.
We reserve the right to reject any films. Please take care not to submit films with gratuitous gore, nudity, and other factors that would make it inappropriate for even an "R" audience.
You may submit as many films as you like however, only one film per Director/Production Team will be selected for the showcase.
ALL GENRES are welcome!
Films must be less than 10 minutes including credits.
Films are NOT required to be premiere screeners. Filmily Fest? 48hr? Bring it on!
Students may be asked to provide proof of full-time status.
All films must have been completed after January 2016.
