  • Call for Entries: The 2015 Hang on to Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park, NJ

    A little bit about this short film festival based on the New Jersey shore:

    After Hurricane Sandy the shore was hit very hard and many people came together to help rebuild the shore.
    Though many artistic events and film festivals have left the area. We all work in the entertainment industry in some form and we all love the art of film making. We want to bring back film festivals to the Jersey Shore and also celebrate those who are trying to break into the industry with the Short Film.
    We decided to create a small intimate short film festival in the amazing area of Asbury Park, NJ to start our festival. Now entering its second year, "Hang on to Your Shorts" Film Festival.
    Right now we are looking for entries for the festival to be held in late April, at the Showroom Cinema in Asbury Park, NJ.

    Currently we have two submission sites up, just search for Hang on to Your Shorts Film Festival on both and Unfortunately the early bird special deals have passed on both sites. The next deadline is on Film Freeway, which is January 1st. I do not see a deadline on our Without a Box page (I'm not the one driving that account), but contact the director, Chris Cullen at cullenfilmsllc at gmail dot com for deadline info over there.
