Over the last year, we’ve polled thousands of filmmakers who are members of the Stage 32 community and asked them what they most need to move the needle on their careers. Of course, the first answer was money. But the second answer was access/exposure/distribution. This we can help with!

Introducing the Stage 32 Short Film Contest. From now until August 14, 2015 we will be accepting short film submissions which will be judged by industry talent. Films reaching the final round will be judged by industry executives who have all been involved in either signing filmmakers off a short or shepherding a short film into a feature!

Even better, the top 8-10 films will be screened in a special Stage 32 theatrical Shorts Program Showcase at the Raindance Film Festival in London this September! The films will also be showcased in a special global online screening exclusively on Stage32.com. How’s that for access and exposure?
