Borders | No Borders is a new filmmaking competition created by the Houston Cinema Arts Society (HCAS) that 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. Submissions to Borders | No Borders may address any subject matter, but HCAS requests that filmmakers submit a brief description of their ties to this geographic area along with their film. Finalist films will be announced with the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020 lineup in mid-October and will be screened at the Festival (November 12th-16th). Due to the pandemic, HCAS is currently planning a virtual festival. Screenings of the finalists films will most likely be virtual.
Regular deadline: August 1, 2020
Regular deadline extended: August 21, 2020
