Entries for the seventh annual Show Me Shorts Film Festival are now open. Show Me Shorts is New Zealand’s largest short film festival, with films selected to screen from New Zealand and around the world. The festival takes place in over 12 locations nationwide from November, screening a stylistically varied selection of the 40 best short films, which are grouped into six themed sessions.
The final entry deadline for Show Me Shorts 2012 is 5pm Friday the 29th of June. There is a small fee to enter, so filmmakers on a tight budget should be aware that a discounted early bird entry rate of just US$20 is available for entries made before the 1st of May.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The total prize pool for Show Me Shorts 2012 is valued at well over $10,000, and there are now nine different award categories. Submitted films must be between two and 20 minutes long, and made within the last two years. Filmmakers at all levels from beginner to expert are welcome to apply. Films with high production values will be given extra weight in the selection process, as will those that make their NZ premiere during the festival.
