Submission Categories

  1. NARRATIVE: Can you make a micro horror film? Comedy? Romance? Show us a genre narrative film with or without sound in 18 seconds or less.

  2. EXPERIMENTAL: This is for the filmmakers whose style is more Kenneth Anger or Maya Deren than Steven Spielberg or Ava DuVernay. These micro-films will take risks and challenge us to think outside of the box.

  3. STOP-MOTION: This one is pretty self-explanatory; filmmakers submitting to the stop-motion category will be providing micro-films using this creative technique.

  4. ANIMATED: This category is designed for filmmakers using computer-animated or traditionally-animated techniques in their work. Show us your unique style and approach!

  5. WILD CARD/OTHER: Does your micro-film not fit in any of the other categories? Submit your work to this category for the awesome but undefined!
