      • To Whom it May Concern,

        Yes, I would like to have the extension for April 20th if at all possible. It’s a screenplay I’m writing for my class, so the more time I have to finish and refine it, the better. Is that ok?

        Thank you,
        Nick Scutti

  3. What is the submission fee for a short film?


    • Hi, Hodge.
      Thanks for your e-mail. The submission fee for a short film is $35 until February 3rd when it goes up. Let us know if you have any other questions!

  4. Hi, we were planning on submitting a short film by March 20th, but have faced unforeseen delays. Is it possible to get an extension to April 1st? We’ll try to get it in sooner, and that’s the latest I would hope to submit. Thanks.

    • Hi, Vince.
      Our extended deadline ends on March 25th. We will accept productions that aren’t completely finished on that date, as long as all post production work will be done by the time of the festival. Hope that helps.

  5. When will the films be announced?

  6. Hey! I just came across this contest now! And I missed the deadline by one day! Is there any way possible I can still submit a 30 minute comedy tv pilot? Chris
