The Black Panther International Short Film Festival is a three-month contest repeated four times a year. A quarterly online awards competition is dedicated to recognizing screenwriters, filmmakers, cast, and crew for high-quality work. We accept short films of all genres. Our mission is to encourage and support filmmakers throughout the world in order to provide the recognition they deserve. We understand the amount of effort, commitment, and dedication that goes into creating high caliber visual and written media. Likewise, we realize how important it is for creators who achieve success in various film-making aspects, to be recognized for their successes. This recognition acts as independent corroboration to studios, production companies, casting directors, producers, and even potential investors; for writers,actors, and filmmaker who demonstrate skill and expertise in their craft.

The Black Panther International Short Film Festival operates as an independent awards online event. Submissions are adjudicated,but do not screen publicly. We will not in any way display your materials, with the exception of a poster, screenshot,and/or trailer posted on our website or social media accounts, because we do not want to jeopardize your premier and/or distribution status.
