New York (TADIAS) – Do you have a short movie that can spark debate and activism in 12 minutes or less? The call for entries for the 13th Annual Media That Matters Film Festival is now open.

The festival, which takes place in New York City in the fall, is the leading platform for short films exploring some of the most burning questions of our time. Organizers say the jury-selected collection highlights the work of a diverse group of up-and-coming independent filmmakers.

The films are equally diverse in style and content, including documentaries, music videos, animations, experimental work and everything in between.

This year’s festival includes an Educators Forum that showcases academic curricula for each film, as well as moderated Q&A sessions with curriculum developers, filmmakers, and community activists.

We encourage you to submit your work.
