Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

So the Borscht Film Festival rejected your heart-rending short film about a poetry professor who loses his cat to cancer. You just gonna sit there and cry about it? Or are you going to show those cocky bastards what real filmmaking looks like?

Now's your chance. Until December 31, the Miami International Film Festival is accepting submissions to its Florida Focus Short Film Competition.

There are two categories: High School/College students and an Open Comp. The former accepts any film under 15 minutes, the latter any film under 20 minutes. There's a $5 entry fee for the student comp, $15 for the open comp. Each submission must include three DVD copies. Go here to submit.

Whiskers, you shall not have died in vain.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
