The Screen Actors Guild Foundation is now accepting submissions from all states east of the Mississippi for its October 2013 NY Shorts Showcase – it’ll be the launch of year five!
 
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 22. All entries received after that date will be placed in contention for our January 2014 event.
 
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 New York City, three times a year.
 
All shorts MUST be produced under a SAG-AFTRA union contract, and not run more than 15 minutes, including credits – no exceptions.
 
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, the director’s name, an email contact address and the project’s SAG production number to:
