Due August 20th, 2018 - To celebrate the release of KIN in theaters August 31st, DUST is proud to partner with Lionsgate, KIN and its directors Jonathan & Josh Baker to host a short film competition for emerging sci-fi filmmakers.

In 2015, filmmakers Jonathan & Josh Baker premiered their short film BAG MAN at SXSW Film Festival. After receiving a strong response from audiences and critics alike, they began developing the short into KIN; a feature film now starring Jack Reynor, Dennis Quaid, Zoe Kravitz and introducing Myles Truitt, coming to theaters this August 31st. The Baker Brothers, pulling from their personal experiences, professional expertise, and love of the science fiction genre, are now set to judge the KIN x DUST $10,000 Sci-Fi Short Film Competition, and offer emerging filmmakers a platform to for their own short films to be seen by DUST’s devoted audience of science fiction fans.

Filmmakers should submit an original sci-fi short film inspired by KIN’s tagline: “No bond is stronger than family.” All compliant submissions which explore the theme of family through the lens of science fiction will be considered.

Submissions must have a total run time between 1 minute and 15 minutes.
