Enter Your Film

The Call for Entries for the 2018 Josiah Media Festival Has Begun!

The Josiah Media Festival is open to any filmmaker 21 years old or younger from anywhere in the world. However, filmmakers over 21 can also enter their film(s): any film(s) made while the filmmaker was 21 or younger is still eligible for competition and prizes!

Nearly $2000 in prizes will be awarded to the 12 winning filmmakers and it is completely FREE to enter your film!

The deadline for film submissions is June 1, 2018

Submitting a film is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

2. Read through the Guidelines and fill out the Entry AND Release Forms in full
3. Send us your completed Entry and Release Forms and an High-Definition copy of your film (.mpeg, .mp4, .avi, etc.) – submission materials can be entered by mail or by email.
