Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (EMP|SFM) here in Seattle has announced a call for submissions of short films to their next competition.
From their Web site:
From June 1 through September 15, 2009, the Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival (SFFSFF) will accept short film submissions, up to 15 minutes in length, that have been produced after 2005 for entry into the competition. Multiple submissions will be accepted according to the rules and regulations. Submissions will be judged based on originality, quality, artistic merit, innovation, voice, style and narrative.
I wonder how many competitions and exhibitions there are for short and independent science fiction movies. You mostly hear about film festival showings but I’ve come across occasional references to local community events. Maybe I’ll find time this week to look for some Web resources on the topic, but feel free to suggest any you may know about.
