Film Fest Flyer
The 2015 BIG PICTURE Conference will be hosting it's 6th Annual Short Film Festival. Georgia BigPictureCon Short Film Festival is a featured part of the 2-day BigPictureCon. The festival was designed to allow student and emerging filmmakers a chance to have their work showcased at a venue where professionals and peers are present to evaluate their talent and vision, and where they can network and access opportunities for professional development. Films will be evaluated by an esteemed jury of industry professionals, such as film festival programmers and established filmmakers, based on judging criteria which takes into account elements such as quality of story line, creativity, production quality, acting, soundtrack and editing.

Anyone can submit a short film on any topic. However, the piece must be family-friendly (PG or G-rated), with no grotesque violence, nudity, or other inappropriate content. Films cannot be more than 15 minutes in length. For just $10.00, experienced and emerging filmmakers can submit short films of up to 15 minutes in length in categories including drama, comedy, music video, and PSAs, among others. Filmmakers of entries selected for screening will receive two All Access conference passes. Early submission deadline is June 12, 2015.
