Calling all independent Filmmakers! pH is hosting a new showcase for your work - pHilm pHestival! The idea is simple. Every month we will give you a theme or topic, and you have one month (roughly) to make a 5 minute short based on that theme. It can be any genre you want...comedy, horror, action, silent - however you think the theme best comes to life. We'll take the entries (20 max per month) and showcase them over the next 4 weeks. The first 3 weeks we'll show all the short films. Audience members will get to vote on their Fan Favorite. In addition there will be a panel of judges (not from pH) that will also select a favorite. The winner of Fan Favorite and Judge's Choice from each of the 3 weeks will move on to the final week (the 4th week). We will show all the finalists one more time and we will again choose a Fan Favorite and a Judge's Choice. The Judge's Choice will win $150 and the Fan Favorite will win $50. That's it! We'll do it every month, and it will always be only $10 to enter! So sign up and try your hand at being a filmmaker!

$10 Entry Fee.
Maximum Length of Film: 5 Minutes
October's Theme: "The Olympics"
