Timid Monster Films has partnered with the "Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention" to bring you this showcase. They are also looking for short films to be shown at this convention. The following information was provided by the hosts.
"Greetings Memphis-area Filmmakers!
Timid Monster (that’s us) has partnered with Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention to bring you the first ever , featuring…well…hopefully your short-film!
That’s right, from now until the end of October 2013, we’re taking submissions for a special screening of Memphis-area sci-fi short films at this year’s Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention, November 15-17, 2013.
Qualifications and Terms
The title says sci-fi, but we’ll take fantasy, supernatural, horror…really anything that would be at home at a con.
Your film must actually be a film (not a trailer, music video, etc…)
Your film must be 5-20 minutes in length, including credits.
Your film must have been made within the Memphis metropolitan area. We will consider regional films as well (looking at you, Nashville), but Memphis films take priority.
Memphis CFC is an all-ages event, so your film must be somewhat family friendly. Think PG-13.
You must own the copyright to your film, the soundtrack, etc… If you don’t, we’ll need a written release from the copyright owner(s).
There is limited screen time, so understand that your film may not be chosen to screen.
We would greatly prefer if you are able to help promote the screening and supply promotional copies of your film for giveaways, as well as be present during the convention to introduce your film.
If all that sounds peachy keen, then submit your film today. Have questions? Shoot us a message."
