New Submission Categories Added
By admin, October 1, 2013
We are officially announcing the addition of 2 new categories to our submissions process. In the past we have shown Experimental Films and Web Series but treated them like any other short film in our program. This year we decided to pay special attention to them and give them a special place with dedicated programmers and screenings.
For Experimental Films STIFF is excited to announce our partnership with Interstitial Theatre, Seattle's only gallery dedicated to exhibiting video and new media art. We are proud to welcome Interstitial Theatre as the official selection committee for the category of Experimental Shorts. Please check out their website interstitialtheatre.org and like them at facebook.com/interstitialtheat
Seattle has been on the leading edge of the Web Series movement for several years and is home to several of the top shows in the country. We have a very active community with a well attended monthly meetup group. This has brought awareness to our audience and a demand for a dedicated program. We want to show a variety of narrative, documentary, reality etc. We also want to feature shows with a variety of run times showing what filmmakers can do with 2-3 min, 5-8 min, 10-12 min and 12-20 min. Don’t feel like the audience will be lost if you don’t send us your first episode or feel you have to pack several episodes together, the purpose of the screening is to make our audience curious and want to go on the web and see more. Send your favorite episode and be sure to include a link where we can go online and see more.
Don't forget to submit! For the lowest rate available Regular deadline is November 1, 2013 and Last Chance is January 3rd 2014.
