FILM & MUSIC LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON
FILM PITCH + POSTER CONTEST
FILM PITCH: Filmmakers will pitch their promising film ideas to the audience Thursday night (Sept 23) for a chance to win over $1,000 in cash, gear rental, and other filmmaker goodies to help fund their indie film. After all the pitches are made the audience will vote for the filmmaker they believe should receive the prize. We'll announce the winner after the showcase! Scripts can be submitted via FilmFreeway.
HOW IT WORKS
POSTER CONTEST: Como Shorts will select a winning design to serve as the event poster for the showcase. The winning graphic designer/artist will earn a shout out on social media, complimentary tickets to the event and a cash prize. This year's theme is "Neon Kingdom." All submissions are due no later than July 14, 2021. Please send work to ComoShorts@gmail.com and place "poster contest" in the email's title. Design assets, if needed, are available in this google drive link.

I left como shorts felling inspired and ready to write again. You sometimes don’t realize the talent that surrounds you until you stop to watch.
