Download the entry form and send your film to Cinema St. Louis! This is probably my favorite local event and I encourage you to attend -- even if you aren't a filmmaker. It is an excellent place to network, and best of all, you'll have plenty of great films to enjoy!

Here is the info:

The St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase (SLFS), an annual presentation of the nonprofit Cinema St. Louis, serves as one of the St. Louis area’s primary venue for films made by local artists. SLFS screens works that were written, directed, edited or produced by St. Louis natives, and/or those with strong local ties. Films will be accepted from an 120-mile radius of the metro St. Louis area.

Diverse in every respect, the films range across all genres and styles including comedies, dramas, narratives, documentaries and experimental works. The filmmakers themselves are all as unique as their cinematic visions, ranging in age from grade schoolers to adult professionals working in the film industry.

This 2007 edition of the SLFS will take place July 21-26, 2007. The event will begin with a day-long series of seminars related to the filmmaking process at the Centene Center for Arts and Education on Saturday, July 21st. Screenings will take place at the Tivoli Theatre from Sunday, July 22nd through Wednesday, July 25th. Cinema St. Louis will host a filmmakers reception and awards party on Thursday, July 26th at Blueberry Hill.

The official submission process will begin on February 1st and conclude on May 31st. Downloadable entry forms are located below. Please contact Cinema St. Louis for questions or clarifications. Good luck and we very much look forward to receiving and reviewing your exciting new work!
