CALL FOR SHORT FILMS
Do you have a completed short film that you want to share with a larger audience (over 400,000 subscribers)? A weekly short film TV show is being put together that highlights our region’s short films, filmmakers, and creative resources.
The show will be carried on COX Cable (local channel 74 or 77) in Northern Virginia on Monday nights at 8 pm starting on 4-14-14. We will also post the program to a dedicated YouTube channel and to COX Online.
The short films can be between 1 minute and 8 minutes in duration. Please send an email to email@example.com with a link (YouTube or Vimeo) to your work, a brief description, and the film’s duration. If your short film is chosen, a producer will reach out to you to schedule an airing. You must own the legal rights to a film, its music, and all the footage contained in the film in order to show it on the TV program.
1.) Absolutely no nudity of any kind is allowed for any reason, artistic or otherwise.
2.) No foul language of the sort outlawed on broadcast television or radio
3.) No depiction of drug use
4.) Adult situations must be moderated carefully.
5.) No “infomercial”-type of content.
