Cardora Film Festival Aims

We are looking for charming, intriguing and intelligent stories or some kind of vignette or tableau vivant (about 1-2 mins long) with high production values. Winning and qualifying movies will be added to the catalogue for Cardora Moviecards.

Cardora Moviecards is an online personalized movie-greeting card service offering high quality, charming and beautiful story-driven micro-movies for adults and children.

The Cardora Film Festival is non-exclusive and you can submit films from your back catalogue and which have already been on the web or in other film festivals. You can also submit as many movies as you like for consideration and we will happily accept all and any films that meet the simple requirements of quality in our Rules and Terms of Entry.

Cardora Moviecards can be sent by the filmmakers to promote their work and by Cardora subscribers. If enough subscribers send your movie (as part of a moviecard), you will get a share of the revenue generated from sending the moviecards that include your movie.You can use this money to make more movies!

You can enter any movie that you have ever made! It just needs to be in a format that can be shown on the web and you have to hold all the rights to the picture and sound. You can even re-edit movies in your catalogue to fit the time requirement of Cardora. (Please no ads or commercials.)

Cardora can help you build your audience in preparation for crowdfunding and traditional finance raising and help with packaging by attracting talent. A potentially very large audience could see your work and it could go viral.

We would like moviemakers to pay careful attention to the sound quality of their films as this is necessary for films which are going to reach a wide audience.

We will accept movies from filmmakers anywhere in the world and in any language or no language at all, but for the moment, if there is dialogue in a language other than English, please offer a version that includes sub-titles. Films can be live action or animation or a mixture.

Cardora is non-exclusive so it is OK if your film is on Youtube, Vimeo or any website or has been seen by the public before.


The Cardora Film Festival has four main goals:

1) We want to encourage the making of high quality, intelligent, charming and uplifting movies, starting with micro-movies (around 1 - 2 minutes long).

2) We have developed a viral platform so that your film has the potential to be seen by a much larger number of people than any normal festival.

3) Thanks to the viral platform your film can actually generate a revenue stream for you, and

4) Help you build a fanbase for your work which will help you with crowdfunding and finding backers and talent for larger films.

Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival

Science fiction comes in all shapes and sizes—horror, drama, comedy, shorts, and full-length films. Other World Austin will bring the best of all that is SciFi to Austin. The three-day festival will feature films from all over the world, and all films will be eligible for a cash prize Audience Award.


“With a team of programmers who love SciFi, write SciFi, or make SciFi films, we are in this for one reason only—to put on a great festival,” said Bears Fonté, OWA Founder and Director of Programming.


“We are looking for great stories that aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of the audience, thrilling them both visually and intellectually,” continued Fonté.


As director of programming for Austin Film Festival for the last two years, Fonté saw many SciFi films that were submitted, but could not be included in the final selection. Also, Fonté loves the programming at Fantastic Fest, but by representing so many genres, he knows they can’t focus on science fiction.  In addition, most of the films playing Fantastic Fest tend to be premieres or big-budget studio films.  “There are a ton of SciFi films out there, maybe they’ve played another festival, maybe they are a bit more indie, but right now those films have nowhere to play in Austin,” Fonté believes. “I want to create an outlet for those films. Other Worlds Austin is firmly committed to supporting these filmmakers by giving them exhibition opportunities that might not otherwise be available.”
