The Coolest Summer Shorts is the first event of its kind for Boxed Out Productions’ Katie Mack and Okema T. Moore. As avid film lovers, burgeoning filmmakers and respecters of the challenges and triumphs of the independent creative, the ladies wanted to provide a chic, cool and fun environment to celebrate the work of other like beings. This short film screening will be food for the cinematic hungry and water for the creatively thirsty – a visual and emotional feast for those that love and respect a great piece of work wrapped up in 30 minutes or less! Filmmakers will not be bound by dates of production or “previously screened” stipulations. The sole requirement is a film no longer than 30 minutes long that tells a captivating story. Genre and theme are open, and all submitted films will be reviewed and scored by B.O.P.’s leading ladies, along with select a jury of industry professionals. The best four films will be screened and compete for cash and prizes.
The screening will feature an amazing Guest Host/Speaker, raffles, networking opportunities, complimentary wine and popcorn with paid entry, door prizes and raffles. There will also be honors awarded for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Short and Audience Choice.
Call for entries open on April 1, 2015 and the deadline is June 1, 2015 for featured screening event in August, 2015. Submissions must be digital, and written feedback for each submission is available upon request for an additional fee.
We look forward to rolling out this event and will continue to provide information via our website and social media pages.
Best of luck to all entrants and we look forward to showcasing the best of the Indie Short Film Community’s work!
