Splice Film Fest

Saturday, 08 June 2024 until Saturday, 08 June 2024


Very expensive for a 1-day festival - that seems to never take place! website.

Welcome to SPLICE Film Fest! We are a New York Metropolitan (Tri State area) based selective international film and video art festival showcasing all genres of short films, music videos, and subjects ranging in length of at least 1 minute up to 10 minutes.

We are particularly interested in filmmakers whose work is underrepresented either by gender identification, ethnicity, subject/topic. We are open to any and all stories, and are looking to build a community through our festival that is accepting and welcoming for all to submit, and share their work with our live audience. The festival will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2024.

We accept: abstract/experimental, video art, animation, augmented/mixed reality, documentary, traditional narrative, comedy, social justice, LGBTIQQ, mixed media, music video, performance art, and everything in between. It's up to you to choose the best category or categories in which to enter your film. You must pay the fee for each category you enter.

We welcome and encourage work by students, amateur, and professional filmmakers. Each film will be judged by its own merit, and not by its budget.

While we accept all genres, we will NOT accept films that could be deemed hate speech, abusive or derogatory towards a person or group of people.

All student submissions are only $10, but you must provide proof of your current student status via email to receive the discounted submission. You must submit in the "STUDENT" category ONLY to receive the discounted submission. Your film will be disqualified if you do not provide proof of your student status, and you will NOT get a refund on the $10. Any submission into other categories will require you to pay the normal entry fee.

Laurels will be given for the following categories:
