Call for Entries and Jury Announcement: 2020 Local Filmmakers Showcase

Local filmmakers have until Friday, July 31 to submit work for our eleventh annual Local Filmmakers Showcase.

More Info

Film Streams’ annual Local Filmmakers Showcase is a celebration of the extraordinary work being made by artists in Nebraska and Iowa. Each spring, we put out a Call for Entries with a late summer deadline. An independent jury reviews all submissions and creates a feature-length program that premieres in the fall with a special screening and post-party.
