Welcome to the 7th Annual Bonita Springs Short Film Fest Competition
Eat, love, play, Bonita
This film competition is an annual celebration of the City of Bonita Springs and is open to ALL genres, ages, and levels of skill. A panel of citizens of Bonita will judge each submission accordingly.
Each entry will be judged on its own merits, particularly in how they best showcase the theme for this year.
Check all categories under our PRIZES webpage
This year’s festival topic is
“EAT, LOVE, PLAY, Bonita”
Pick any genre (comedy, drama, documentary, western, etc) and tell us a story through film.
Remember that the higher the portion of your short film is recorded in the City of Bonita Springs, the higher your winning chances are
Each film/video must be from 1 minute to 10 minutes long, with an interesting story for everyone to enjoy.
We’ll say it again: the minimum length is 1 (one) minute and the max is 10 (ten) minutes – We will be very strict about this rule.
The judges like films shot in Bonita Springs, though you may use additional footage shot in other locations, as long as you hold the rights to that footage. Failure to observe this rule can disqualify your entry. If you have doubts about using certain footage, from someone else, please contact us.
