The Festival of Short Films for Long Times is a commitment that was born in 2020 in the midst of the global health crisis due to Covid-19, where the main measure was mandatory isolation, which produced endless artistic manifestations from the homes, turning the place we inhabit into a scene of cultural and artistic expressions that were a reason for hope, union and fraternity with people from all over the world.

In this way, the festival was a space to share all the talents and expressions from the audiovisual, as well as becoming a space for learning through workshops, talks and conferences held during the month of June of that year.

For the year 2022, the Festival de Cortos para Tiempos Largos re-emerges as a space that seeks to unite and transform the different ones that we inhabit, adapting them to new audiovisual challenges that reinterpret the ways of looking and looking at each other, allowing our production not to be limited to a physical space, but transcends from innovation and creativity.

Poppy Jasper International Film Festival

The Poppy Jasper International Film Festival (PJIFF) has been entertaining audiences in the greater San Francisco Bay Area for more than 15 years. We promote inclusion, diversity, and women empowerment; educate people of all ages about filmmaking; and encourage everyone to “find their voice through film.”

In 2021, like many other festivals, Poppy Jasper’s annual festival turned all-virtual. For the first time, our wide variety of films, panel discussions, and filmmaker conversations was available worldwide. We have as a result forged a stronger bond with the international filmmakers whose films made up 2/3 of the festival’s 2021 offerings. Circumstances permitting, we anticipate a hybrid festival in April of 2022.

PJIFF is based just south of Silicon Valley in the towns of Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Hollister, and San Juan Bautista. The festival’s name is drawn from a semiprecious mineral found only in this region. We look forward to once again welcoming visitors to the historic downtowns of our host communities, where local restaurants, breweries, and wineries join in making festival visitors feel right at home.

PJIFF was honored to receive “Best of the Fest” honors at the 2019 Fest Forum in Santa Barbara, and we are thrilled to be one of MovieMaker Magazine’s Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee for 2021.

Before You Submit

Please submit your film to the category in which you would want your film to be considered for selection and “Best Of” honors.

If submitting in a Student or Local category, your film will be considered for selection for Student or Local day. Remember to include proof of student status or contact address with California zip code. If as a student or local filmmaker you prefer to be considered for selection and honors in the main festival, please submit in a genre / type specific category instead.

We are committed to inclusion and diversity, and strive to select films that honor that ethic. Half of our selected films will be from women directors. We typically have a program of shorts and a few feature-length films. English closed captioning and audio description are encouraged but not required. Foreign-language films must have English subtitles.

Indy Film Fest was founded in 2004 to celebrate the art of cinema and to create a shared experience around film in Indianapolis. We are a non-profit, international, independent film festival programming both features and shorts. Our all-volunteer staff strives to bring the best films the industry has to offer to our community from home and abroad. Our programmers aim to foster new talent and help filmmakers connect with the global industry. We are also dedicated to educating and developing audiences for international and independent cinema in Indy, screening the kind of innovative, visionary work that may not normally achieve distribution in this area.

Indy Film Fest is looking for the best independent features and shorts no matter the category or genre including: live action, animated, drama, comedy, narrative, documentary, horror, sci-fi, and experimental. Our annual festival spanning over 10+ days typically programs around 25 features and 100 short films, with over 90% from submissions.

Always growing and adapting, the Indy Film Fest began as the three-day Indianapolis International Film Festival in 2004. We quickly expanded to our current 10-day format in 2006, moved our festivities to the summer in 2009, changed our name to the Indy Film Fest in 2014, and since 2018 have been back home in our original spring timeframe. Due to COVID-19 our 2020 and 2021 festivals were primarily virtual and our 2022 festival was a hybrid 5-day in-person festival followed by virtual availability and concluding with award-winner in-person screenings on the final weekend. That format is our goal for the 2023 festival and before selection decisions are made filmmakers will be informed of any changes to dates or format and given the opportunity to request their submission fee be applied to a future festival if those changes are not acceptable.

Alumni of the Indy Film Fest (and Indianapolis International Film Festival) are eligible for a reasonable number of free submissions. Films with significant ties to Indiana are eligible for drastically reduced submission fees. Examples of eligibility include the director or writer being a current Indiana resident or native, or the film being primarily shot within Indiana. Please contact submissions@indyfilmfest.org to see if you are eligible for either of these opportunities.
