SUBMISSIONS OPEN for DC Shorts Film Festival 2009
Submissions are now open for the 2009 edition of the famed DC Shorts Film Festival! Visit the updated web site at http://dcshorts.com
DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.
In 2008, DC Shorts reviewed more than 750 entries from around the globe. We selected 103 short films for screenings at 8 showcases during the competition weekend of September 11-14, 2008, with each show featuring an average of ten short films. Since a major focus of the event is the inclusion of filmmakers, many of the films were represented by the more than 108 filmmakers in attendance from 8 countries. More than 2,600 people attended the screenings.
DC Shorts gives ALL ENTIRES feedback -- a point which impressed MovieMaker Magazine to name us as "one of 20 festivals worth an entry fee," AND as "one of the leading film festivals" in the country.
THE EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15, 2009. Submission fees go up after that date -- so enter now and save!
I look forward to seeing your new works!

Low fees, unique themes, and screenings at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington DC.

I just received a grant to use towards color correction/light post work (music-video-ey effects), but I'm not sure who I should go to in the Greater Philadelphia area that "knows what they are doing" - the short was shot in HDV and looks pretty good, but I know some companies really have some special tricks to "make everything pop".

Hey Philly Filmmakers!
Got Films? Want them distributed?
Submissions for undistributed films to the Philadelphia Film-A-Thon are still open! The Winner of "Best Feature" will receive a screening at the International House Philadelphia Theater, a copy of Toon Boom Storyboard Pro
, the Official Philadelphia Film-A-Thon trophy, waived entry into next year's festival, and an international distribution offer by Polychrome Pictures through Warner Bros Worldwide Home Video/DVD
. Visit www.ProjectTwenty1.com
for more info.
Note: Short films & animations will also receive screenings & awards at year's Film-A-Thon, but we do not have a promise from PC/WB to distribute them BUT YOU NEVER KNOW!
If you have something exceptional, please send it our way, and we will do the best we can it in front of the right eyeballs!
[x-posted to find the best film possible!]

I don't think you can handle making a movie in three weeks.
No one can make a movie in three weeks, right? Specifically, in the 3 weeks between July 19th and August 9th? Nah, you're probably right, why bother? It's more fun picking your nose and watching reruns of "Boy Meets World".
Get off your butt, lazy! There are all sorts of awards, prizes, exposure, networking and IMDB
potential for ya. Besides the personal glory of besting dozens of other Teams from around the country. Not that that looks good on a reel or fundraising proposal or anything....
Hey, what's the worst that happens? You end up making a film? That's not exactly a bad way to spend 3 weeks!
Standard Registration ends May 31st, so hurry and sign up now!
to learn more, watch our trailer, and sign up!
Also, if you are an actor, crew, or enthusiast that likes film a lot but you're too shy to start your own Team, why don't you post a message and volunteer on our forum
? Musicians can also donate their music
so they can promote their work AND promote indie filmmakers. We want Philadelphian-film freaks to meet each other!
We're not just a film festival. Consider this your kick in the pants: MAKE SOME MOVIES!
