Sponsored by the Wimberley Library and the Wimberley Chamber of Commerce, our festival is for short films (7 minutes and under) by independents. Our participants include children and families, so subject matter should respect those interests. We are based in Texas' Hill Country, and the festival entries will be accepted only from Texas. The festival itself is on January 18, 2020, in Wimberley, about an hour southwest of Austin.
We offer trophies for first-place entries in a variety of excellence in film categories.
Movies must be no longer than 7 minutes in length, including credits. They must be by independent movie-makers and must be original and directed by Texas filmmakers. We have two categories for entries: 18 years of age and older, and 17 years of age and under. As this is a family friendly event, any films with profane language will not be considered.
We retain no rights to the movies and simply want to show them once at the festival. Entries must be received or posted no later than midnight December 15, 2019, for the January festival.
