The Houston Latino Film Festival is teaming up with Soalz Media to bring you, Houston Votes LIVE, taking place October 23 and 24. This will be a LIVE streamed event to show the importance of voting and what a difference the community can make.

As part of the event, we’re holding a contest for filmmakers to create a short film that will motivate youth and people of color in the Houston area to vote in the November 3rd elections. Four films will be selected to screen online, and one of those films will win the grand prize of $1,000.

Four films will be selected to screen online on October 23 and 24 during the Houston Votes LIVE event. One short film will be awarded $1000 cash.

• All films must have the theme of encouraging voting, and must remain neutral. Any films that promote any party, individual, or agenda will be automatically disqualified. Please only ENCOURAGE VOTING.

• All film genres are accepted.

• All films submitted must be no more than 5 minutes. That means anything under 5 minutes is acceptable. Anything over will be disqualified.

• All films submitted must be in final cut form.

• All films must have English subtitles for all non-English language entries.

• All submissions must be received by the deadline, October 15, 2020. No late submissions past will be accepted.
