Pervasive turkey and pumpkin pie supermarket ads signify two things this time of year–Thanksgiving’s around the corner and the Florida Film Festival late deadline for Shorts is coming on fast like a speeding freight train. Believe it or not, this Friday, November 19 is the third landmark to hit of the various submisssion deadlines for Shorts and Features for the upcoming 20th edition of the festival April 8 – 17. Our late deadline for Shorts looms just a day away, while our late-late extended deadline for all you Without a Box-ers out there allows for yet one more week of post-production or procrastination (or both) until November 26 (the day after Turkey day). But NOW is finally the time to send in your short film if it’s complete and ready to go. The Friday, 11/19, date is actually a postmark deadline so we can receive a bulk of submissions by the middle of next week, so go ahead and get your entry in transit this weekend and you’ll be fine. Narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, domestic, international–if it’s a new short, we want to see it, and for the most part, it’s now or never. Show us your shorts!
Entry info is available (as always) at the festival website, www.floridafilmfestival.com
We look forward to seeing your work.
