The 2015 Josiah Media Festival will showcase a variety of genres. From comedy, drama, animated spectacles, eye-opening documentaries, and everything in between, there is something for everyone! During the two day festival, we will screen a diverse selection of films as well as the 12 prize-winning films from our four film categories (Narrative, Documentary, Animation and Experimental). All of the films to be screened are shorts no longer than 20 minutes. Please note that some films may contain material that is not be suitable for all audiences.

The Josiah Media Festival was founded in 2007 to honor Josiah Miles Neundorf, a talented media artist from San Antonio, who succumbed in 2006 to bone cancer. In honor of this artist, his parents Marcus and Nancy Neundorf collaborated with URBAN-15 to create the Josiah Media Festival, designed to showcase outstanding works by young filmmakers around the world. Since its founding, young filmmakers participating in the Josiah Media Festival have gone on to receive acclaim at other film festivals worldwide, to garner attention from national and international media, and begin thriving professional careers in the film industry.
