SHOTS 2020 Submissions are OPEN!

SHOTS is an International Independent Short Film Festival based in the Peace messenger city Slovenj Gradec, Slovenia and will be holding its fifth edition from August 6th to 8th 2020.

 

The festival is created by a crew of young independent filmmakers who want to show quality short films from around the globe. We invite international independent filmmakers who would like to show their work to an international jury and audience that enjoys new and unique approaches to cinema. We focus on finding diverse and alternative independent films with strong characters and story line. We encourage all filmmakers to submit their films, regardless of ethnicity, religion or worldview. All genres are extremely welcome! We will screen all the accepted films in front of a live audience. Since it is a 3-day festival we can show only a limited number of short films, so all the accepted films will be nominated for an award and invited to Slovenj Gradec, Slovenia for the duration of the festival.

 

As we are rated one of the 100 best film festivals please check out our reviews by other filmmakers and see why we strive to be the best. We are filmmakers ourselves and want to give you a unique and respectful experience. Join us on our ride through the world of film! 🙂

The submissions for the fifth edition of SHOTS, which will be held in August 2020 are officially open!

 

The submission process is super easy and fast. You can join us with a film between 1 and 30 minutes in length, but if you have a slightly longer film, don’t worry – you can try your luck. If we like it – we will take it. We wish you all the best and will be happy to host you if you make it to the final round. See you in Slovenj Gradec!
