Thank you for submitting to the Etheria Film Night! Etheria Film Night is an annual curated screening of the best short science fiction, action, fantasy, horror, and thriller films directed by women. One out-of-competition feature will be screened as well.
Etheria Film Night has rolling submissions, meaning you can submit anytime. However, to be considered for the 2015 lineup, you must submit no later than March 31st, 2015.
Please read the rules thoroughly before submitting
Your film MUST be directed or co-directed by a woman. A woman is someone who currently identifies as a woman when it comes to gender or sex.
The Etheria Film Night only screens science fiction, horror, action, thriller, comedy, and fantasy films. Speculative fiction, dystopian, apocalyptic, mystery, noir, dark comedy, heist, and disaster films are welcomed.
The Etheria Film Night plays a lineup of roughly 8-12 short films and one feature-length film. A short film should be between 20 seconds and 20 minutes in length. A feature should be longer than 60 minutes and no longer than 130 minutes. You can enter as many films as you like – simply fill out a different form for each film submission.
