Festival Rules


This will be our 9th Annual CommUNITY Film Fest!  This year's festival will be IN-PERSON at the Maumee Indoor Theatre in Maumee, OH, Sunday, August 20th, 2023 at 2PM.  Join us on the red carpet, watch selected entries on the big screen, and stay for the awards ceremony at the end of the event! As always, the festival is FREE to attend!


We are looking for entries that highlight how YOU contribute to your community.  This might be your family, school, work, neighborhood, faith community or wherever you belong.  Create and submit your best (limit one) short video, maximum of 5 minutes, using a smart phone, camera, app, or other video device. Work with friends and family to create art!


If you want to be part of this fun and challenging event, please send us an email with a signed copy of the Entry Form (below).  It’s FREE to enter your short film, so once you send your email, start making magic!  When your movie is ready, upload it to YouTube as public (look on the Helpful Hints page) and email us the link, or mail us a copy of your film on disc (email and address are in the Entry Form).  The deadline to submit your movie is May 31st, 2023 at 5 PM.


The committee will select the videos that best create community, promote inclusion and celebrate the everyday lives of people of all abilities.  These entries will be shown at the premier. The CommUNITY Film Fest Committee members will screen all entries and be sure they meet the Submission Rules as outlined below.  The Committee then forwards all accepted entries to the Judges who will determine the award winners, which will be presented at the event.
