2015 Entry Rules


Entries must be submitted on Withoutabox’s Secure Online Screener or another online source, such as a link to vimeo. Save the environment and save money via Online Screeners.  Email us if you have questions.

Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the presentational format will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. Be sure to indicate aspect ratio of your film/video as well as any other special screening/presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.

Although the art of filmmaking is not competitive, Atlanta Shortsfest does give accolades to films selected as best in various categories: Best Narrative and Documentary Shorts, Best Director, Best Comedy, Best Drama, etc. Visit the awards page


Cost of shipping exhibition copies to the festival is the responsibility of the entrant. Exhibition copies must be sent to the festival prepaid. The festival can not accept responsibility for damage or loss of materials while in transit. Please use as little packaging material as possible to cut down on trash.

Due to the large number of materials received videos will not be returned.


Feel free to email us if you would like confirmation of entry or check your Withoutabox account.
