Downtown Boulder and the Boulder County Film Commission invite filmmakers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to submit their work for consideration, and if selected, to be featured at the 1st Annual Downtown Boulder Short Film Festival on Thursday July 13th following the Downtown Boulder East End Mile!
The short film (20 minutes or less) can be based on any subject or concept, but should have “something” to do with Boulder, and to ensure a family-friendly event, all films must be acceptable for a PG audience. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2023, and there is no entry fee. Selected filmmakers will each receive a small stipend of $75. For more information, and to enter a film, please visit https://www.
Selected films will be shown at the 1st Annual Downtown Boulder Short Film Festival that takes place outdoors at sunset (approximately 8:30 pm) on Thursday, July 13 on 16th Street (between Pearl and Spruce), along with a filmmakers Q&A. This community event is free and open to the public.
Boulder County Film Commissioner Bruce Borowsky says, “The Short Film Fest will allow community members to share their own personal perspective of how they see and experience our little town; perhaps from a different angle than what we are used to seeing or experiencing.”
Additionally, Bruce Borowsky noted, “This is a great way to give proper exposure to kids and students who are interested in filmmaking, as the public showing of their work to the Boulder community might help inspire them to perhaps consider filmmaking as a real career choice.”
