The International ShitMovie Film Festival celebrates hilarious shorts created by talented filmmakers. We select the best submissions to be part of a feature length program that spoofs the traditional movie going experience. Featuring a slide show of hilarious movie trivia & ads, a trailer reel, and a feature presentation- your submission potentially becomes part of the show. While the meat of our program is comprised of 1 to 10 minutes shorts, we also screen hilarious commercials, funny music videos, animation, found films, documentaries, mocumentaries, and trailers. You can also submit a feature film, and if selected we will cut a custom trailer for your movie!
While there is no one definition of a ShitMovie, below are some of the key factors that we look for in considering your submission for our program.
ABSURDITY- We are attracted to comedy that pushes this philosophy to the limit.
RESOURCEFUL - You haven't got a lot of money but that doesn't stop you.
IMAGINITIVE - Think outside the box. We like weird, zany, and insane shit.
HUMILITY - Don't be afraid to make fun of yourself.
BAD - The art of "bad on purpose" is exciting to us.
GOOD - We also like really well made shit too!
SOUND - Pay attention to the sound, especially if your movie looks like shit.
ORIGINAL WORK - Must have original work or permission to use copyrighted material.
