Call for Submissions for the Made in Baltimore Short Film Festival

You're invited to submit your latest film to the Made in Baltimore Short Film Festival!

This festival honors and awards the best filmmakers in the Greater Baltimore region. We’ll select short films that push the envelope and inspire audiences to view film and video through a uniquely Baltimore lens. Made In Baltimore will accept fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, horror, mockumentary—you name it! Submissions will be judged on technical excellence, originality, and Baltimore flavor. Those who live, work, or study in Baltimore are encouraged to submit.

Awards & Prizes

Films selected to be in this film festival will each be awarded cash prizes, with the top selected film receiving $1,000! Thanks to Charm Cine, all selected films will also receive big discounts on future gear rentals. The top two films will also receive trophies designed by local artists. Previous trophies were designed by Alice Gadzinski and Vic Yambao.
