We enter film festivals with the hopes of gaining exposure and/or winning accolades and prize money. But more often than not, the film festival ends and filmmaker and organization go their separate ways.

It's harder to market shorts than features. So this is a collective of filmmakers, a collection of short films.

We'll pick the weirdest, most ambitious, most diverse set of short films.
They'll screen in NYC, then we'll release a Volume 1 collection of shorts to the whole world.

Filmmakers will share royalties while retaining rights to short films.

Short Films Only.
You own the rights.

18 and over.
18 and under with parental/guardian permission.

Submitters warrant that they have the legal right to enter film work to the Bad Film Fest.

If accepted, entrants will be solely responsible for delivering their exhibition video materials to and from the festival.

Entrants acknowledge that, by entering, no fiduciary or confidential relationship now exists between the Festival and entrants, and entrants further acknowledge that no such relationship is established by these guidelines.
Once accepted, a royalty agreement will then be accepted by both parties.


We're looking to push the envelope but anything involving hate speech will be disqualified.
