We’re excited to invite you to take part in the 11th Annual Elgin Short Film Festival (ESFF). This is a one-of-a-kind event taking place in Elgin, IL on Saturday, September 21, 2019. The ESFF has drawn film entries from around the world making this an impressive event that has entertained film lovers since 2009. We are currently inviting filmmakers to submit their short films (20 minutes in length including credits) for competition in our festival. Any filmmaker may submit work, even if it has been entered into other festival competitions! We encourage submitting films in every genre and subject matter as long as they are within the scope of the official rules. $50 entry fee for submission by the deadline of August 23. $40 early submission fee if submitted by August 2. Go to filmfreeway.com/festival/ElginShortFilmFestival for submission information and list of prizes. Tickets to the film screening are $10 at www.hemmens.org. • ESFF will accept films that are the equivalent of an MPAA ‘R’ rating. • The ESFF will feature a Live Action category and an Animation category. • Prizes up to $1,000!
