Submission Categories


A micro-short film is a type of film that typically lasts no longer than a few minutes, usually less than 5 minutes with credits. It is a very short film that aims to tell a complete story or convey an idea in a very condensed format. Due to its brevity, micro-short films often require creative storytelling techniques to effectively convey their message.


A short film is a type of film that is shorter in length than a typical feature film. Generally, a short film is considered to be a film with a runtime of less than 30 minutes. Short films can be made in various genres and styles, such as comedy, drama, documentary, experimental, and animation. Due to their length, short films often focus on a single idea or theme, and rely on strong visual storytelling to convey their message. 


An animation short film is a type of short film that uses various techniques to create the illusion of movement and bring characters and objects to life. These techniques can include traditional hand-drawn animation, computer-generated imagery (CGI), stop-motion, and others. Animation short films can be made in various styles, such as 2D, 3D, and mixed-media, and can cover a wide range of genres, from comedy to drama to fantasy. Due to their flexibility and limitless possibilities, animation short films are popular among filmmakers, and are often used to convey complex ideas and emotions in a visually stunning way.

Awards & Scholarships

We are excited to share that there will be two $500 awards given at this years’ film festival. One of the monetary awards will be a scholarship awarded to the best student film, and the other monetary award will go to the best overall film done by a non-professional from any of the categories.
