ALSO This Friday is the deadline for the Reel Women SXSW Showcase.
RECEIVE BY DEADLINE FRIDAY FEBRUARY 18th at 5:00pm – REEL WOMEN would like to make a call for short films for the REEL WOMEN SXSW SHOWCASE. In the past, SXSW has given REEL WOMEN two screenings during the film festival where we made one showcase program and screened those films twice. Last year we got so many films that we made two different showcases. We are aiming for two different showcases this year. The REEL WOMEN SXSW SHOWCASE is included in the Film Festival program booklet and schedule. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the SXSW Film Festival 2011.
Short Film Criteria:
- Must be submitted on DVD with the application form
- No longer than 14 minutes. Films longer than 14 minutes will be accepted but have a lesser chance of being picked.
- All genres are welcomed. Preferably “women subject matter” and/or show women in a positive light or role but not required.
- Must be made by a REEL WOMEN member or REEL WOMEN UT STUDENT CHAPTER MEMBER
