As a PBS member station, Louisiana Public Broadcasting is calling for entries for short films from local filmmakers. Submitted films will be considered by LPB and PBS for inclusion in the 13th Annual PBS Short Film Festival. The PBS Short Film Festival showcases powerful stories from filmmakers across the country and reaches an engaged and digitally savvy audience. This year’s Festival will take place online in July 2024, but entries must be submitted to Louisiana Public Broadcasting by Wednesday, February 21, 2024 for review.

To enter, filmmakers should send a link of their film to filmfest@lpb.org along with the title of the film, contact information, and a two-to-three sentence film description. LPB may request additional detailed information related to production costs and funding from filmmakers. Films should be 3-15 minutes in length and can be fiction or non-fiction. The most appropriate films for this festival are those who have creative or compelling storytelling, as well as high production quality. If you have questions about the requirements for the festival, send them to filmfest@lpb.org or go to http://www.lpb.org/filmfest.

“Louisiana Public Broadcasting loves showcasing homegrown content and the PBS Short Film Festival allows us to bring national recognition to Louisiana stories, as well as to our talented filmmakers,” said Jason Viso, Director of Programming at LPB. “LPB nominated films have been selected to participate in the festival for more than a decade, so we hope Louisiana filmmakers continue to take advantage of this great opportunity to amplify their work and recognition.”

All entries must be received by Wednesday, February 21, 2024.
