Please read the rules thoroughly before submitting
Your film MUST be directed by a woman. A woman is someone who currently identifies as a woman when it comes to gender or sex. If there is a co-director, they must also be a woman. We are no longer accepting films with male co-directors.
The Etheria Film Night only screens science fiction, horror, action, thriller, 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 6-12 short films and one feature-length film. A short film should be between 20 seconds and 20 minutes in length. We are no longer accepting feature film submissions. Feature films are invite-only. Please contact email@example.com for more information. Feature films may not be submitted through the form on this website or through the submission services.
