BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (May 13, 2019) – The 6th annual Bonita Springs Short Film Festival has begun taking submissions. The theme for this year’s festival is titled, Secrets of Bonita.
“This year’s theme is truly one that peaks the imagination,” said Founder and Executive Director of the Bonita Springs Short Film Festival, Antonio Correia. “The Secrets of Bonita theme is totally open to your imagination. Sometimes a secret is something well known that people don’t pay much attention to, or you can bring attention to some of the ‘not-so-secret’ wonders of Bonita Springs, like our River, our parks, our people, our beach, our wild life, or you can let your imagination go wild, and make a film based on an unsolved mystery.”
Entries must be submitted online through the website. To fill out and submit a form, visit www.bonitaspringsfilmfestival.com. The minimum film length is one minute, maximum is 10 minutes.
The festival is a two-day event this year, with the gala Thursday, November 7 and a new “Under 16” awards ceremony Saturday, November 9. Both events will take place at the Prado Stadium 12 Theaters.
All films must be submitted by Sunday, October 20. Categories include Best Music Video, Best Under 16, Best Cast, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Writer and more.
