The Screen Actors Guild Foundation is now accepting short film submissions and web series from all states west of the Mississippi for its August 2013 Short Film Showcase. Submissions must be postmarked by Monday, June 3. All entries postmarked after that date will be placed in contention for the Foundation's April 2014 event.
There is no entry fee, nor is there a cost to attend the screening, which is held in Los Angeles, twice a year.
All shorts MUST be produced under a SAG Short Film or SAG-AFTRA New Media contract for consideration, run no longer than 15 minutes, including credits (no exceptions), and be completed films.
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.
Please share this info with all your filmmaker friends. 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-AFTRA or SAG production number to:
