Category Breakdown
Want to participate but are having a hard time considering what you might want to create? Here are a few suggestions for each category!

Under 5 or under 2 minute shorts
Documentary, Mockumentary, action, comedy, romantic comedy, sci-fi, thriller, you name it — any traditional film genre is accepted for these categories (please, no films that would be rated at high greater than PG-13, as we may have children present). Focus on telling a great story, in a technically sound manner.

Film Noir (or Black & White)
Have an idea for a scene that doesn’t require dialogue? How about a mystery film with dialogue that could look swell in black and white? Film noir or the Black & White film category may be for you.

Made with Smartphone
Any form of narrative is acceptable, but the only camera that may be used would be on your smartphone. Scenes or snippets that are filmed using DSLR technology or cinema grade cameras will be rejected for this category. Grab your phone, craft a narrative, and tell your story well!
