Peace Region filmmakers have until the end of day Thursday, February 21, to submit their short films to the 13th Reel Shorts Film Festival May 6 to 13 in Grande Prairie.
More than 5,000 submissions from 116 countries have already been received by the regular submission deadline, but February 21 is an extended deadline for films made in the Peace Region, and for those made anywhere in the world by filmmakers who currently reside in or have resided in the Peace Region.
Films must have a running time between 2 to 31 minutes, and have a completion date of January 1, 2017 or later. Films must not be on YouTube or available for public viewing online.
The festival selects more than 80 films every year; about a third of them are premieres, and a similar number are award winners.
Royalties are paid to filmmakers whose films are chosen to screen at the festival, and films are also eligible for juried and audience choice awards.
Reel Shorts began in 2007, and has screened 89 Peace Region films since 2013.
