SAG Foundation short film contest now open to filmmakers

SAG-foundation-short-film-contest
The Screen Actors Guild Foundation’s bi-annual Los Angles Short Film Showcase is now accepting submissions from filmmakers residing in all states west of the Mississippi for its August 2014 Short Film Showcase.

Submissions must be postmarked by Monday, June 2nd. All entries postmarked after that date will be placed in contention for our April 2015 event. If you submitted to the SAG Foundation NY showcase, you are ineligible to submit to the LA showcase.

Webseries produced under a union contract are also eligible for consideration.

There is no entry fee, nor is there a cost to attend the screening, which is held in Los Angeles, twice a year in April and August

All shorts must be produced under a SAG Short Film, SAG Student Agreement or SAG-AFTRA New Media contract, not run more than 20 minutes, including credits – no exceptions, and be completed films. Previous submitted films are eligible for re-submission.

The showcase is open to all types of cinematic expression, and is designed to encourage union members, and others, to create their own projects. In addition to the screening, the evening includes a Q+A with the directors and producers, and an opportunity to network with those in attendance.

Filmmakers may submit a regular DVD copy of their film – no Blu-Ray, please — which should be clearly labeled with a title, email contact address and the project’s SAG production number to:

SAG FOUNDATION SHORT FILM SHOWCASE
5757 Wilshire Blvd. #124
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Questions regarding your production number please call the SAG-AFTRA office at 323-954-1600. For any other questions please email liferaft@sagfoundation.org

We are accepting shorts from filmmakers currently residing from the following states:

Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming
