EMP Museum is now accepting entries for the 2016 Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival (SFFSFF)! The eleventh-annual festival will screen in Seattle, Washington in early 2016. We’re looking forward to this year’s excellent submissions from around the world, and we hope we’ll have the opportunity to see what you, your students, and your alumni, have been working on.
From now through September 30, EMP, in partnership with the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), is encouraging original and creative science fiction and fantasy film submissions 15 minutes or shorter in length for the festival. Submissions will be judged based on originality, quality, artistic merit, innovation, voice, style and narrative.
We’re looking for animated or live-action submissions in science fiction (examples: futuristic stories, space adventure, technological speculation, social experiments, utopia and dystopia) and fantasy (examples: sword and sorcery, folklore, urban fantasy, magic, mythic adventure). We welcome submissions that step outside the boundaries of reality and inspire a sense of wonder.
A nationally recognized panel of distinguished film, television, literature, and science fiction industry professionals, peers and film critics will review qualifying submissions and determine the winners.
