Now accepting submissions for the 2014 Local Filmmakers Showcase!

We’re now accepting submissions for our fifth annual Local Filmmakers Showcase—a curated program featuring work by area artists.

Filmmakers are invited to submit their work for consideration electronically or by mail. Send a DVD along with completed submission form to: Film Streams, Attn: Patrick Kinney, P.O. Box 8485, Omaha, NE 68108. Or, send a link to your film and the completed submission form to patrick@filmstreams.org.  There is no fee for entry.

To be eligible, the director of the film must be a resident of Nebraska, Iowa or South Dakota. Students who are either residents of or are attending schools full-time in one of those three states are welcome to submit. The idea is to provide a theatrical premiere for local filmmakers, so work that has screened publicly for a paying audience (outside of film festivals) will not be considered for this program.

Films must be completed at the time of submission and received by Film Streams no later than July 25, 2014. A maximum of three submissions are allowed per filmmaker.

More details about the 2014 Local Filmmakers Showcase, which will take place in October, will be announced later this summer. Filmmakers whose films are selected for the showcase (as well as their families and friends) will be invited to an opening night celebration and screening. All filmmakers chosen will also receive a percentage of the box office for the week-long run at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, plus a small honorarium.

Submissions will be reviewed by an independent jury. Films of all types and running times will be considered for the program, which will be approximately 90 to 150 minutes in length in its entirety. Aside from time constraints, the program’s format will be determined by the quality and diversity of films under consideration.
