The 10th Annual Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series now accepting submissions!!


Here is an invitation to all film-makers, distributors and producers of short film to submit film(s) for consideration in the 10th Annual Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series.

BSISFSSTransplogo_250Held from June to August, 2015, at the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur the series has, in nine short years, become one of the most exciting and unique film screening series in the world. Perhaps it’s because of our world-class jury of Oscar winners, producers, and artists. Or it could be our ideal location, situated practically half-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Or maybe it’s because films are screened under the stars beneath towering redwoods in a natural outdoor amphitheater, steps from the Pacific Ocean..
