Autumn Shorts Film Festival

Home of the Autumn Shorts Film Festival. Somerset Community College's annual short film festival held in September.


2016 Call for Submissions

Call For Submissions: Somerset Community College Theatre & Film welcomes submissions of films no longer than ten minutes in length. Selected films will be showcased at the Festival on September 15 and 16. 2016. Awards will be presented for outstanding achievements by the official selections. There are no cash awards. Did I mention there's no submission fee?

The official online entry form for the Autumn Shorts Film Festival can be found at Google Documents. All submissions will be accepted through the form linked below.

A Downloadable Link: A link to a downloadable version of your film on such sites as Vimeo is a common mode of submission. We can also accept submissions via Dropbox and Wetransfer. NOTE: We must have the film file itself before your submission is complete. We cannot do initial screening from links to web players such as Youtube. We will not download files from Youtube or any other site via third party applications.

INTERNATIONAL FILMS: All films not rendered in the English language are required to include English subtitles that are embedded into the rendered file.

It is unlikely that submissions which contain graphic sexual or violent images and/or profanity will be selected as official entries. Beyond this, we encourage flights of imagination and original artistry. We feel that the short film is an excellent vehicle for such experimentation and exploration. While we champion the emerging filmmaker, we feel that the participation of seasoned filmmakers in our past festivals has always provided excellent examples for our participants. We encourage such participation.
