Enter the SPLOID Short Film Festival

You’ve put in more time and work than you ever thought possible to develop your video crafting techniques and have the samples to prove it. And you went through all this hell, why? Because you were driven by creative demons? Because you really, really, really wanna go pro? Because you have a need to entertain? Maybe even a need to be – gulp – famous?

If that’s you, bunky, then here’s the next step:

Welcome to the first edition of the Sploid Short Film Festival, a celebration of great storytelling and awesome eye candy. We will select the best short films of 2015 in the next five months leading to a November award ceremony at Gawker Media’s theater on Fifth Avenue in New York.

What is the Sploid Short Film Festival?

Sploid has been curating the best videos on the internet for almost two years now. We’ve featured hundreds of shorts with great stories and awesome visuals and helped bring those films to a larger audience.

Now we want to go one step further and recognize the talent of the amazing individuals and teams of filmmakers with a festival to celebrate their art.


The selection process

We are opening up submissions for the Sploid Short Film Festival 2015 starting today: Just send us a link to your video. It’s that simple. You can do that by e-mailing us here. If it matches what we’re looking for, we will contact you back.

We will also contact the filmmakers of any short film we love as part of our daily curatorial work and invite them to submit their films to the Sploid Short Film Festival as well.
