If selected, your short film will find its home on our expanding platform that currently features Award-winning films such as BLKMGC, Rose from Concrete, Grief, and How to Tie a Tie.

Here’s what you need to know about our submission requirements:

In our commitment to promoting a positive and inclusive atmosphere, we consciously steer clear of any content that may perpetuate harm or marginalization. Specifically, we avoid showing material containing pornography, blatant racist rhetoric, anti-LGBTQ+ themes, antisemitic elements, or any content that glorifies violence.

As a short, the film must be under 40 minutes in duration. All rights, including music, must be secured, and the film must be free to view.

Submitting your work to our platform requires a one-time fee of $35 (per film), and it may take up to six weeks for our team to review.
