TheWrap ShortList Film Festival is pleased to open its submissions for the 4th Annual Film Festival today, Monday, Feb. 16, 2015.

This year’s festival will stream online from August 4-18 on ShortListFilmFestival.com and TheWrap.com and will air exclusively on EPIX. Winners will be announced at a live party in Los Angeles, with filmmakers and jury in attendance. $30,000 in prize money will be awarded to winners in three categories.

The festival offers unparalleled opportunities to get your film in front of an audience of industry influencers. One of last year’s Official Selections, “The Phone Call,” is currently nominated for an Academy Award.

The festival is accepting submissions of narrative, documentary and animated short films. The festival will continue to show the best award-winning shorts of the year and announced last month the addition of a new category for an original film: The Creators League Prize is seeking one new short under five minutes whose subject matter incorporates overcoming a great challenge or adversity.

April 6, 2015: Early bird deadline
May 4, 2015: Regular deadline
