Colorlab's Film Contest is back!

Have you made a theater-worthy short that you think needs to be on the big screen? Would you like your film preserved on physical film for generations to come?

Colorlab is offering the chance to have your short made into a 16mm / 35mm print and premiere at a Washington DC area theater! In addition to the print, you will receive a 16mm / 35mm preservation negative and soundtrack, effectively ensuring your short will be around forever.

This year we have two categories: 1) NARRATIVE: COMEDY or HORROR and 2) EXPERIMENTAL
