Do you make short films?
Are you a connoisseur of shorts? (We're talking cargo, denim, flat front)
Do you love making shorts or watching shorts while wearing shorts in the fall?


The Mahoning Drive-In Theater will play host to its first ever independent film festival entitled ----drumroll please---- SHORTS IN THE FALL.

This will be a two-night event where we showcase the most interesting, thought provoking, weird, offbeat, quirky, and fun short films from around the tri-state area. Whether a drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, animation, or whatever bizarre mash up of genre filmmaking you can come up with. We're also accepting music videos too!

Each filmmaker is allowed to submit only one(1) film no longer than 12 minutes in length. Then our crack team of judges will narrow it down to the top 24 films, which will then be split into two separate screenings over the course of two nights (October 19 & 20).

Each screening will be followed by an awards ceremony, an audience Q&A , and a personally curated feature length film made by an upcoming area filmmaker (it wouldn't be a night at the drive-in without a double feature).

So what are you waiting for? Doesn't matter if you're a first timer, student, or seasoned filmmaker. Give us your best short film today, and if selected, we hope to see you at our screening still rockin those cutoffs all the way into late October!
