Submissions are free. Please send submissions in terms of a Vimeo or YouTube link. Submissions must be completed this year (2020). For purposes of this festival, the project submitted must not run any longer than forty-five minutes. Please verify if this is your debut film and if you are a local (Ohio) filmmaker when submitting for consideration in these categories. Multiple submissions (more than one film per director) is welcome. Please inform AWordofDreams if you would like to put a screener link up at the site for your short film if it wins/ is nominated.
Winners and nominees will have AWordofDreams’ permission to use AWordofDreams’ logo on their film poster as a respective nominee/ winner. They can also do so in any trailer for the nominated/ winning film and state that they were a nominee/ winner in the festival.
Please send submissions to Andrew Buckner’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/andrew.buckner.3, via Messenger.
Thanks for your time and good luck to all participants!
