Showing short films prior to our feature films is one of our favorite parts of the Picture Show! We’ve shown dozens of short films to crowds as big as 2,000 people. It’s a lot of fun for local filmmakers to show their work on the big screen in front of friends, family, and strangers. So send us your short film and let’s make 2017’s short film line up as good as all of our previous seasons!

Due to time constraints, we can’t screen any short film longer than 15 minutes. If your short film is 15 minutes and 4 seconds… We’ll THINK about it…

If you would like your short film to be screened as part of our 2017 season, please send an email to:

shortfilms [at] silverlakepictureshow[dot] com

The following is very important; if you don’t follow the following format, unfortunately we will not be able to review your submission.

To increase your chances of getting your short film screened at the Picture Show, please take a look at our 2017 Lineup and tell us (briefly) why your short would be a good match to introduce a certain film.

That’s all, thanks!
