Enter Moment Film Festival for $150,000 in Prizes!

The Moment Film Festival is offering $150,000 in prizes to talented short filmmakers!

To enter, all you need is a short film shot on a mobile phone or drone. We know that a lot of FilmUp readers already have one!

But if not, you’ve still got a little time – the contest deadline is June 6, 2021. Sometimes a contest or festival deadline is exactly what you need to get moving and finish that passion project. Take a look at what the Moment Invitational is all about:

The Moment short film contest has nine different categories you can enter in:

  • adventure
  • mini-doc
  • music video
  • long-form
  • experimental
  • drama narrative
  • comedy narrative
  • sci-fi narrative
  • how-to

The winner in each category gets $5,000! In addition, all 27 finalists will win $1,000, and the Filmmakers’ Choice Award winner will receive $10,000. Not bad for a 3-minute video!

Another piece of good news: there is no entry fee to submit!

Watch the festival’s YouTube Live premiere on June 26th to find out if you are one of the 15 finalists, one of 9 category winners, or the coveted Filmmakers’ Choice winner.

Moment 6th Invitational Film Festival Rules

Your short film must be under 3 minutes for adventure, mini-doc, experimental, sci-fi, narrative, comedy and drama. For music video, it needs to be under 5 minutes. And for long-form, under 15 minutes.

Moment’s short film contest has a few other entry requirements:
