First Friday Shorts

SUPPORT

Monthly Grand Prize: $200! Yearly Grand Prize: $1,000!
On the first Friday of each month comedians Bridgitte Thum and Mike Sterner host the biggest, baddest short film contest in town – just bring us your short films and we’ll play them on the largest movie screen in Southern Arizona!
In case you’ve never been to a First Friday Shorts show, here are the rules:
We’ll play anything you’ve made that’s under 15 minutes long and is brought to us on a DVD, thumb drive or BLU-ray (one film per person, and DVDs must be playable on a regular DVD player and films on drives need to be in by 8:00pm). Submissions are only taken on the day of the event, and all entries MUST BE RECEIVED PRIOR TO THE START OF THE ACTUAL SHOW (we cannot accept films after the show has begun, or during intermission). All films are played in the order they’re received. Every film is guaranteed to play for 3 minutes, but after that the audience can call for the dreaded “gong” if they’re displeased. If the gong is struck, our intrepid host stops the film and the next movie begins. But don’t despair … if your film is gonged, you can re-work it and bring it back to see if the changes you’ve made have pleased the audience. This is a great way for filmmakers to try out new ideas and see how an actual audience responds, so take advantage. You cannot submit the same film more than once unless it has been re-worked. Remember, the audience decides the winner each and every month, so keep them happy! Filmmaker must be in attendance to win the cash prize.
