Send your short film before October, 10th to Slamdance Film Festival: Oscar® qualifier with $25000 in cash awards

It all began when a group of cheerful, subversive filmmakers were rejected by the Sundance Film Festival. Unwilling to take “no” for an answer, they started their own event instead: the Slamdance Film Festival. 25 years later, Slamdance has become a year-round organization fostering the development of unique and innovative filmmakers. The organization now consists of the Film Festival, Screenplay Competition, and Slamdance Studios.

True to its mantra "By Filmmakers, For Filmmakers", Slamdance is a showcase for raw and innovative filmmaking. Filmmakers who first showed their work at the festival are now amongst the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Alumni who have shown their early short films and debut features at Slamdance include Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Ari Aster (Midsommar), Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball), The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame), Jon M. Chu (Locos, ricos y asiáticos), Lena Dunham (Girls), and Lynn Shelton (Sword of Trust).

Slamdance offers an intimate community experience in which audience members, filmmakers, festival programmers and industry professionals all mingle in the same hallways and sit side by side in screening rooms to discover the next generation of cinema talent.

Oscar® qualifier in the short film category: The winners of the Jury Awards for Narrative Short and Animation Short will be taken into consideration for the Hollywood Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science's awards®.

Plus, Slamdance GIVES AWAY $25000 in prizes. Think about it no more and send your short film now!
