We are waiving entry fees to filmmakers from outside the US and Canada. Please include any supporting materials including photos! (preferably in digital format). Due to the large amount of entries, we are unable to return your submission but we will get back to you regarding your submission(s)!

Microcinema will contact you before including any entry at its monthly Independent Exposure screening in San Francisco and/or Houston. All artists will be paid an honorarium when their work is screened in the San Francisco and Houston shows. Artists also will qualify for a non-exclusive Microcinema Distribution through Exhibition Agreement for subsequent international screenings.
