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!

- Jon Gann
 Festival Director
