The HAC is proud to announce that we are actively seeking submissions for our second annual Short Film Festival!
For various reasons, we are moving our event date to September 29, 2018. That means we have also extended the application period to September 19, 2018.
Last year, we shared 15 great short films from local filmmakers with an enthusiastic audience and esteemed panel of judges. It was such a great experience, we’re ready to do it again!
Because we are focused on short works, we ask that all submissions fall between three and fifteen minutes long. And, to ensure we have a fun event for most ages, we require that all films meet and adhere to commonly accepted film ratings so that no piece is stronger than PG-13. If you have any questions related these requirements or whether your film qualifies, please let us know.
There are prizes for the top three best films, as selected by our panel of judges, and a prize for the Audience Choice winner, where our viewers pick the fan favorite.
So, if you are a local filmmaker, do not delay! Download our official rules and application document to get started!
