Enter Your Film

The Josiah Media Festival is open to filmmakers around the world, 21 years old or younger!

Filmmakers must have been born on or after September 1st, 2002 OR must have been 21 years old or younger at the time the submitted film was completed. All key crew members on the film – writer, director, editor and director of photography – must have also been 21 years old or younger at the time the submitted film was completed (this does not include any actors in the film).

The Call for Entries for the 2023 Josiah Media Festival Has Begun!

Filmmakers can submit as many films as they like, but each film must be accompanied with a unique Entry & Release Form.
