FREE REGISTRATION FOR OUR FILM CHALLENGE SHOWCASE

Attention all filmmakers! Our 4th Annual Shameless Plug Arts Festival is back, and we will be returning to Fergusons Downtown for our exclusive Film Challenge Showcase. Not only will you screen your film at our festival, but you will also be considered for a chance to win a CUSTOM director's chair!

Register with us for FREE by September 1st in order to consider you for our Film Challenge Showcase! Once your registration is verified, we will send you a request form in order to collect your final film delivery!

SHOWCASE CHALLENGE THEME:

Our theme this year is "Dark Academia." This theme can be present in aesthetic, narrative subject matter, tone, and/or setting!

Accepting all types from bleak literary themes of oppression, death, and existentialism—to friendship, resourcefulness, joy, and the beauty of life. An aesthetic that revolves around classic literature, the pursuit of self-discovery, and a general passion for knowledge and learning. 

RUN-TIME: 4 MIN (MAX)

GENRE: Whatever you want! As long as you follow our Theme 🙂

NOTE: We will accept films that were made prior to the challenge that fits the theme — however it will be stated as a pre-made film and will be noted during judging status.

FREE REGISTRATION BY: SEPTEMBER 1ST, 11:59 PM PST

FINAL FILM DELIVERIES: OCTOBER 1ST, 11:59 PST

This registration form is FREE. Only films that are OFFICIAL SELECTIONS will be issued a $20 Filmmaker Fee in order to screen at our festival.
