Houston Cinema Arts Society (HCAS) brings back the second annual Borders | No Borders regional short film competition this year. Borders | No Borders is open to short narrative and documentary films with strong ties to Texas, the states bordering Texas, and Mexico.
Borders | No Borders invites residents of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Mexico as well as filmmakers with meaningful ties to these areas to submit narrative and documentary short films. Films in all languages are welcomed and encouraged, but we request that films that are not in English be submitted with English subtitles to ensure that the translations best represent the filmmaker’s vision. The winners for Best Narrative Short Film and Best Documentary Short Film will each be awarded a prize of $1,000. There will be two additional Jury Prizes of $500 selected by a panel of six jurors. Past jurors included Damon Davis, Kimberly Rivers Roberts, and Sumie Garcia for the Documentary Jury Prize and artists Bassam Tariq, Giorgio Angelini, and Brett Cullen for the Narrative Jury Prize.
Deadline: September 6, 2021
