The moment we’ve all feared! It’s hard to believe, but the 2012 Florida Film Festival early deadline for Shorts is just about here. Friday, October 21 is the first landmark to hit of the various submission deadlines for Shorts and Features for the upcoming 21st edition of the festival April 13 – 22. While our late deadline for Shorts hits 4 weeks from now on November 18, and our popular late-late extended deadline for all you Without a Box-ers out there allows for yet a few more days of post-production or procrastination (or both) until November 28, NOW is the time to send in your short film if it’s complete and ready to go. The October 21 date is actually a postmark deadline so we can receive a bulk of submissions by the middle of next week, so just go ahead and get your entry in transit this weekend and don’t worry about those annoying late fees. Narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, domestic, international–if it’s a new short, we want to see it, and the sooner the better. And just a reminder–the Florida Film Festival is accredited by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which means we are an Oscar qualifier in the categories of both Best Live Action Short and Best Animated Short. How cool is that?
Entry info is available (as always) at the festival website, www.floridafilmfestival.com
We look forward to seeing your work.
