Celebrating our 20th anniversary with new short works by filmmakers and video artists from across the Buckeye state.
Submissions are now closed for 2014 and official selections will be announced soon.
The Wexner Center's annual Ohio Shorts showcase provides an opportunity for Ohio's independent media artists to show their work in a theatrical setting before an audience. Works included are selected by a jury of diverse media professionals and artists.
The 2014 Ohio Shorts screening takes place on Saturday, April 26, at 7 PM in the Wexner Center Film/Video Theater. Each person whose work is selected for the showcase will receive two complimentary tickets for the screening. The jury and audience award prizes ($300 and $200, respectively) will be announced at a reception following the screening.
Forms for submissions are available online. Deadline for entries is Friday, March 14, 2014. One entry per person.
All works must be submitted via Vimeo or YouTube link or on DVD (either as an authored disc or as a data file). All entries must be accompanied by an entry form. In order to be environmentally friendly, all DVDs must be submitted in paper sleeves. Unless the final work is on 16mm or 35mm film, selected artists will be asked to submit their video as a high-resolution Quicktime file for the screening.
Pieces must be independently produced in Ohio within the last 18 months, and must last no longer than 20 minutes. Previously submitted works will not be accepted. Entries will not be returned by mail, but may be picked up at the Wexner Center's patron services desk/ticket office during business hours from Monday, April 28 to Friday, May 9.
