The Call for Entries for the 2017 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 winning filmmakers and it is completely FREE to enter your film!
Submitting a film is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. Download the Josiah Media Festival Guidelines & Entry Forms
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 physically by mail or digitally online
And you’re done! Filmmakers can submit as many films as they choose, but each film must be accompanied with a unique Entry & Release Form. Films should be submitted as high-definition digital files on a thumb drive or Data-DVD – Playable DVDs are not acceptable. Films can be sent digitally via FilmFreeway, Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, YouSendIt, etc.
Please note that all films entered through FilmFreeway MUST be accompanied with a completed Entry and Release form!
