A unique festival that presents short films and short plays to celebrate and showcase the Latinx community, it's artist, and it's stories. Short films and short plays are seldom seen by the general public, but even more rare is seeing Latinx artists on the big screen or the stage.

All film genres are eligible. This year we are further expanding our short films lineup by including DANCE short films to create a multidisciplinary experience never seen before.

Additionally, in our commitment to better serve our Latinx comunidad and familias, we encourage you to submit your short films for CHILDREN AND YOUNG AUDIENCES (Ages 5-12) as well.

All official selections are voted on by our audience and are eligible for our Audience Favorite Award. A $100 cash prize will be awarded to the Audience Favorite winner. The winner will be announced on social media the day after the Festival.

Eligible entries must have a Latinx in an above-the-line position (director, screenwriter, producer, actors) and subject matter must have a relevant theme to the Latinx community. All film genres are eligible. Films can be in English, Spanish, or Spanglish.

● Short films must have English subtitles for non-English language entries.
● Short films must be between 1-20 minutes in length.
● Entrants may submit up to 2 films per category.
● Entrants are responsible for obtaining any necessary licenses, royalties, release forms, clearances and permits necessary to present their work. Entrants are responsible for any claim involving copyright, trademark, credits, or royalty infringement related to the work.
● There is a $10 fee per submission.
