Due February 16th, 2018 - The Annapolis Film Festival is proud to announce its inaugural Shorts Challenge – a pitch competition! This year’s topic is women/girls issues at home & around the globe. Please submit a synopsis of your short film concept that meets this theme. No more than one page is advised. Both narrative and documentary concepts are accepted. In addition, send a photo deck of prospective film subjects and/or a written description of the main ones. Video clips allowed, but not required. Send a personal bio/resume as well as a short preliminary budget. Email all of this to programming@annapolisfilmfestival.net by February 16, 2018 with the subject line AFF Shorts Challenge.

THE PROCESS
   * All proposals will be reviewed by a selected group of industry professionals. Five film projects will be chosen for a live pitch session during the Annapolis Film Festival, to be held in front of a festival audience. Filmmakers will have five to seven minutes to pitch their stories and show short clips (if available, not mandatory) of their concept to three industry judges on the stage who will critique the pitches in front of the audience.
   * After all the pitches are completed, the audience will vote via cell phones/text to vote. The combined vote of the judges, curators, and audience will determine the award-winner, which will be announced at the Saturday Bash and again at the Best of Fest on Sunday.
