SHORTSNONSTOP, an exciting new initiative of the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival.

SHORTSNONSTOP is a year-round online mobile film festival that you can experience anytime or anyplace. It is a showcase of short films and web series produced for mobile and online platforms . The running time of films submitted to SHORTSNONSTOP cannot exceed more than ten minutes.

The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival has been presenting the best in short filmmaking from around the world for more than 13 years. SHORTSNONSTOP is a natural extension of this legacy as the festival will celebrate truly innovative short films produced for the third screen. All filmmakers and videomakers are encouraged to submit their work for consideration.

Unlike other film festivals, SHORTSNONSTOP is a year round festival that accepts entries on an ongoing basis, directly at its website – www.shortsnonstop.com.

After each prize deadline, 10 finalists will be selected by our programmers for promotion and distribution. Our esteemed Jury of industry professionals will select one filmmaker in each prize period to be awarded a cash prize of $1500.

New for 2013, SHORTSNONSTOP has expanded eligibility categories to include Web Series Episodes.  The widely accepted definition of a Web Series is two (2) or more related episodes of video content that originate on the web. Content creators  may submit one (1) episode of an existing web series per SNS prize period. These episodes are eligible for the $1500.00 Cash Prize along with other SNS entries.

A sub – category of Web Series Pilot is also available for those web series that are seeking development assistance. iThenitc now offers one content-creator per prize period assistance in development in the form of script consultation, advice on creating a proper pitch package and an introduction to key members of the web industry.

The upcoming deadline for the SHORTSNONSTOP submissions is August 15th, 2013.
