Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at Aggregate Space Gallery (ASG). We are pleased to announce our Third Annual International Short Film Festival. Yearly we receive hundreds of submissions. The theme of the show will grow out of the quality of the submissions we receive and we will start evaluating the submissions immediately.

We will be accepting films from 2 - 25 minutes of length in the categories of narrative and non-narrative. Animations of all styles, digital and analog, will be considered. Submissions are DUE JUNE 23 / 11:59 PM PST. You will receive an email by our team regarding your submission by July.

To present the festival, we will be hosting concurrent looping screenings of the animation selections in an Oakland theater in August (date and location forthcoming), followed by a ticketed award ceremony the same night. With your submission, you will get a complimentary ticket to this event!

The films and their presenters will be publicly announced via social media the day the viewing period opens. Also to be announced is the identities of the jurors, who will come from the San Francisco Bay Area Art and Animation scene. It's a short turnaround, so spread the word and get your submissions in ASAP.

Our August awards ceremony, we will be screening the top 2 films, an honorable mention, and viewers choice awards from each category! Awards winners will receive additional complimentary tickets.
