Greetings Memphis-area Filmmakers!

Timid Monster (that’s us) has partnered with Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention to bring you the first ever MEMPHIS SCI-FI CINEMA SHOWCASE, featuring…well…hopefully your short!

That’s right, from now until the end of September 2013, we’re taking submissions for a special screening of Memphis-area sci-fi short films at this year’s Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention, November 15-17.

Qualifications and Terms

  • The title says sci-fi, but we’ll take fantasy, supernatural, horror…really anything that would be at home at a con.
  • We’re now accepting music videos, trailers, vignettes, as well as short films.
  • Your film must around or under 20 minutes in length, including credits.
  • Your film must have been made within the Memphis metropolitan area. We will consider regional films as well (looking at you, Nashville), but Memphis films will take priority.
  • Memphis CFC is an all-ages event, so your film must be “somewhat family friendly.” Think PG-13.
  • You must own the copyright to your film, the soundtrack, etc… If you don’t, we’ll need a written release from the copyright owner(s).
  • There is limited screen time, so understand that your film may not be chosen to screen.
  • We would greatly prefer it if you are able to be present at the screening to introduce your film and take part in a Memphis-area Filmmakers Q&A, as well as help promote the screening and supply promotional copies of your film for giveaways.

If all that sounds peachy keen, then submit your film today. Have questions? Shoot us a message here.
