Short Film Festival

Calling all filmmakers, smartphone users, and digital creatives! Submit your short film made on your mobile phone to be screened at the museum in collaboration with the International Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. Take on the challenge to create a film based on the unique idea of 1 mobile, 1 minute, 1 film. The use of the Smartphone has become our pencil, our paintbrush, a tool that all participants can express their talent on a digital canvas. All genres welcome from documentary, experimental, animation, music video, and more. Selected applicants are invited to join us for post-filmmaker discussion and reception. It is FREE to submit a film!

Deadline to apply is December 1.

If your film is selected, you’ll be notified by December 6 and invited to attend the public screening. Following the screening, you’ll participate in a discussion with the audience. Films will be screened at the festival in the museum’s Great Hall on December 13, 2018.

Please note that we’ll be screening the films directly from the weblink provided, so a high resolution file is encouraged.
