Submissions of original short films (15 minutes or less) by student and local filmmakers can be submitted until Friday, March 2. Submitted films will be shown at the beginning of the festival to highlight the work of up-and-coming artists. Local and student filmmakers whose work is shown will receive two complimentary tickets to the festival.
Tickets for both the reception and film festival are $8 for students with valid ID and $15 for the general public. Admission to the films only is $5 for students and $8 for the general public.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Chicken and Egg Pictures, which supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.
