Ohio Shorts logo

The Wexner Center’s annual Ohio Shorts festival is back for its 26th year! Showcasing Ohio’s rich community of moving image makers, the event has become known for presenting an eclectic mix of short work—from documentary, animation, or dramatic narrative to anything in-between.

The 26th edition of Ohio Shorts will be curated by local curator, DJ, and co-founder of Verge.fm Reg Zehner (they/them) who is also the first recipient of the Wexner’s Path Fellowship in Learning & Public Practice.

We welcome and encourage submissions from all ages and experience levels! Works that are included in the program will receive a $50 screening fee and be eligible for the $500 Jury Award, selected by Reg Zehner, and the $300 Audience Choice Award, which will be determined by online voting.

The deadline for entries is Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

  • One entry per person is permitted.
  • All works must be submitted by Vimeo or YouTube URL and must be accompanied by an entry form (available on this page on January 3).
  • Works can be as short as 30 seconds but no longer than 20 minutes and must be produced in Ohio within the last 18 months (between June 2020 and January 2022).
  • The full program will be announced by April 1, 2022.

Pending COVID-19 restrictions, an in-person screening will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at 7 PM. The program will also stream online from April 23–May 7. Check back for more details!
