Call for Entries – Show Me Shorts in New Zealand
Welcome to Show Me Shorts – Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. We are now calling for entries for our fifteenth edition, set to take place during 3-25 October 2020. Send us your films!
Each year our programmers curate a selection of the best short films from around the world. We accept animation, documentary, comedy, horror, drama and every other genre, but not experimental films. Our preference is for cinematic narrative-style films with strong audience appeal. The films must be between 2-20 minutes long, and made within the last two years. Priority is given to films making their world premiere during the festival, although this is not a requirement.
Show Me Shorts is a travelling festival that screens at more than 25 cinema locations. We launch the festival with a glamorous opening and awards night in Auckland. There is a second opening night event in Wellington a week later. We also provide professional development and networking opportunities for aspiring short film makers through our Screenwriting Lab, Short Film Talks, Filmmaker Resources and various masterclasses.
