WELCOME TO ROCK THE SHORTS

Only shorts with a TRT of 30 minutes or LESS are eligible for submission. We will have six film blocks that will be 60 to 90 minutes long and a Q&A with the filmmakers to follow. Overall "Best of the Fest" winner will be announced at the close of the festival. 

We hold our selections to a high standard as we will be making great efforts to attain the honor of being a Academy Qualifying festival in the future. We appreciate and respect the hard work you put into your film. We look forward to watching and we wish you good luck!
