West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival

The Warner Theater

Established in 2010, The West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival celebrates exceptional, compelling, original and innovative works in film, video and animation. Its primary mission is to help foster creative approaches to these media and to expose West Virginia University students and the surrounding Morgantown community to the world of independent filmmaking. The festival also strives to highlight issues and themes that help define contemporary culture and experience in West Virginia and the surrounding Appalachian region. The West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival invites submissions in the categories of narrative film & video, documentary, animation and experimental works.

The Electronic Media Area of the West Virginia University Department of Art is pleased to announce a call for entries to the 2nd annual West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival. We seek independent, unique and compelling work in film, video and animation. All interested artists, filmmakers, and multimedia enthusiasts are encouraged to submit. Student submissions are also encouraged. Send us your work!

The Energy Theme
In an effort to draw attention to the complex problems and issues connecting energy, economics, the environment, and culture, festival organizers seek works in any genre that take the theme “Energy” as a focus. These works should address or reflect notions of energy or the many ways in which it is implicated in contemporary experience, such as climate change/global warming, consumption, sustainability, behavior/lifestyle, fossil fuels, renewable sources, economics, politics, industry… etc.

Modest awards have been established by the festival organizers to recognize work of exceptional accomplishment. They include a $200.00 Best of Festival award, and five $100 awards in each of the festival categories: Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short, Best Animation/Experimental, Best Student Work, and Best Energy Themed Project.
