Description

The Taos Shortz Film Fest is again… searching the globe for outstanding short films . We are looking for compelling stories, exemplary production and cinematography and overall awesome films! Voted one of “the 50 film festivals worth the entry fee” by MovieMaker’s Magazine, Taos Shortz boasts being the stellar shorts film fest in the country.
We continues to bring global world class short cinema to the community and to provide filmmakers with a venue to showcase their work, participate in workshops, panels, and network with fellow filmmakers, media companies, producers and distributors.
Do you have a tale to tell? A secret to reveal? A truth that screams to be heard? If you think you have what it takes, submit your film.


Submission Requirements:

Open to Anyone, Anywhere about Anything (except porn or child pornography)
Films should be no longer than 28 minutes and no shorter than 2 minutes. To be considered for competition, the film must have been completed not prior to 2014.
We accept both foreign and domestic films. The film must be in English or have accompanying English subtitles. We DO NOT accept music videos.
The film may not be copyrighted by anyone other than yourself or you must have full written permission to submit and screen this film. The film must have clear copyright of all audio and images presented in the film. Not having clearance could be grounds for non-acceptance to the festival. Entrant must allow usage of clips from the entry and all related publicity material submitted for promotional use on TV, print and/or the internet. This helps us promote you!
All submitted films will go before a submission committee for evaluation.
For submission purposes we accept only DVDs (NTSC or PAL) or On-line links. We DO NOT accept any other formats for submission judging. Please do not send a data disk (i.e. .mov file on dvd disk or USB drive). If you are submitting via a web link, please BE CLEAR AND LEGIBLE. We cannot guess at a long handwritten link.
