About Novella Showcase
NOVELLA PUBLIC ACCESS SHORT FILM SHOWCASE. If you’re looking for a great opportunity to get your work out onto the airwaves, this is it. If you have a narrative short–regardless of genre– or animated short, a music video, or experimental film, we’d love to see it.
We also accept trailers/teasers.
To submit: Submissions must conform to normal broadcast standards, so no language, graphic violence, nudity, or uncopyrighted materials. Since the program itself will be sixty minutes., we’d prefer shorts of less than 20 minutes. If your film exceeds 20 minutes, this does not mean that it will not be considered. If your film is up to 57 minutes, we may consider it if is completely awesome. The very best films will air in the order in which we receive them. If you would like to submit more than one finished short, this means that your works will likely air on more than one installment.
Some Restrictions: As it is appearing on our public access television station, this would be non-commercial television,. We are not talking about money. But make no mistake. Many people associate public-access with lacking quality. We are working to create a new high watermark of quality in creating our series. Once we are established on this first television station, we plan on expanding and placing our show on as many access networks as we can For this reason, we are looking for the very best short films available. .
Please understand: Even though this is not commercial programming we are talking, airing it on our television station at all may disqualify your film from other film fests. Before you make this decision to allow us to air your film, consider it from this perspective. We cannot be responsible if you chose to submit it for television and later find out that your film cannot be accepted by film festivals.
Filmmaker retains full ownership of his films by all means. We are simply requesting permission to exhibit films as part of this short film showcase on which we are working. We do not alter the films in any way; they remain intact exactly as they would appear on youtube.com, vimeo, or elsewhere, so much so that the opening and closing credits will run in full and RT is complete to the second. What we are doing will not imply any ownership or control on our part in any way.
If interested, please send submissions (in the form of links, we would prefer youtube.com or vimeo links) to firstname.lastname@example.org or scmfilmalliance ASAP. The show will be ongoing so feel free to submit your films going forward.
