Do you make short films?
Are you a connoisseur of shorts? (We're talking cargo, denim, flat front)
Do you love making shorts while wearing shorts in the fall?

WELL THIS IS THE FILM FESTIVAL FOR YOU!!!

OCTOBER 18 & 19, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater presents it's 2nd Annual short film festival entitled ----drumroll please---- SHORTS IN THE FALL.

This will be a two-night event where we showcase the bizarre, weird, provocative, offbeat, quirky, and fun short films from around the Tri-State area. Whether a short drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, animation, or whatever bizarre mash up of genre filmmaking you can come up with.Plus we're also accepting music videos too!

Each filmmaker is allowed to submit no more than (1) film, which should be no longer than (15) minutes in length.

Our crack team of judges will narrow all the submissions down to the Top (24) films, which will then be split into (2) separate screenings over the course of (2) nights.

Each screening will be followed by an awards ceremony, an audience Q&A , and a personally curated feature length film made by an up and coming area filmmaker (it wouldn't be a night at the drive-in without a double feature).

So what are you waiting for? Doesn't matter if you're a first timer, student, or seasoned vet. Give us your short films today, and if selected we hope to see you at our screening still rockin' those cargo shorts all the way into late October!

DON'T WAIT! Submit your film TODAY
