Submit Your Film to the MicroMania channel and MicroMania Film Festival 2021
2021 submissions are open, with expanded categories and cash awards!
It is our goal to stir new audiences to short film fandom and inspire new voices. Micro-short films cost less to produce making filmmaking is accessible to anyone with a smartphone or a camera and a dream.
MicroMania (channel) and MicroMania Film Fest 2021 are nonprofit projects created to support independent voices in film while celebrating the skill and artistry of films up to 5 minutes long (not including credits).
Our channel accomplishes what few of us can promoting on our own - attract random views and new audiences. We're already at 210,000K views for our 2019 & 2020 filmmakers - since its launch March 28th, 2020.
What Films We Screen
In short, the films that are selected are films that should be seen. Past that, we’re flexible. We want your micro-short work to be seen as much as possible so, if your film is selected you are welcome to streaming it online. We don't care when a film was made only that its main content is 5 minutes or under. If credits take your film over 5 minutes you are welcome to submit a version without them.
MicroMania Film Festival is open to short films, animations and music videos 5 minutes and under from all countries. Foreign language films must be subtitled in English, not including music videos. Use of copyright protected music must be accompanied by proof of permission or usage agreement.
Animation, documentary, experimental film, horror, comedy, drama, action, freestyle, web series/episodic, film trailers and music video
