  1. I tried to pay the $10 fee, but the link said “The registration for this event is currently unavailable.” The application is due tomorrow the 20th, so please get back to me when you can.

  2. Hello!

    Our 3D Animation students used to participate in this festival years back and I’m interested in getting them re-engaged. Do you accept animated shorts as well? Or do you only focus on camera-shot film? Thanks for your help!

  3. Hi Erica–

    So sorry for the late reply to your inquiry on 8/29/2017. YES! We do accept animated shorts! We’d love for your students to submit films this year. Please note the updated submission date and festival date. Hope to see some of your students’ work.
    Cheers,
    Sarah Bunger
