Submission deadline is March 31, 2019.

Cinema St. Louis (CSL) and the Saint Louis Science Center are excited to announce the second edition of a science-fiction and fantasy short-film contest — an opportunity for regional filmmakers to let their imaginations shine.

This juried competition will award cash prizes to the top three entries: $500 for Best of Fest and $200 each for Best Sci-Fi and Best Fantasy selections. The winning shorts will then be featured at the Science Center's First Friday: Movie Magic program on Friday, May 3, 2019, and will screen in the Science Center’s OMNIMAX® Theater. In addition to the three cash-prize winners, additional works will be chosen to screen throughout the First Friday program.

A jury of film professionals (filmmakers, film scholars, film critics) and scientists will select the finalists, including both the three cash-prize winners and the additional films. Jury members will be announced on CSL’s website.

Cinema St. Louis will also consider the submissions for inclusion in the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase in July (held at Brown Hall Auditorium on Washington University’s campus) and the St. Louis International Film Festival in November.

The cash-prize winners and additional awards in the program will be announced on Friday, May 3, 2019, at the Science Center’s First Friday: Movie Magic.
