Short Film Challenge

Do you have an idea for a short film? The Annapolis Film Festival is accepting submissions for their 2023 Shorts Film Challenge.

This year’s Shorts Challenge theme is ENVISIONING TOMORROW. This theme can be interpreted in a literal sense or a metaphorical sense. Your project can be a personal story or a larger, societal story, using fiction or a documentary format. Your story can be as intimate as a character struggling to get through the day with hopes of a better tomorrow.  Or it can be as grand as documenting a positive solution for the future of a community, our country, or our planet.

It can be as technical as the future of the film medium itself or it can be as philosophical as the future of storytelling. Your subject can be told through a comedic lens or a dramatic lens…science fiction, or reality…but it should be an inspiring take on the future.

The Challenge Process

All proposals will be reviewed by a selected group of industry professionals. Five film projects will be chosen for a live pitch session during the Annapolis Film Festival, March 23 – 26, 2023, to be held in front of a festival audience.

The Prize

The five finalists will be given one round-trip ticket to the festival, one hotel room for up to four nights, 2 All-Access passes and a chance to win the video, sound and post package which includes a $30,000 package in goods and services that will help you get your idea turned into an actual film short to be shown at the 2024 Annapolis Film Festival.

We hope this theme sparks your imagination. Please let us know how you are Envisioning Tomorrow.

The DEADLINE for submission is February 17th.
