How to Enter the Film Festival

Beginning March 11, 2019, the BCFF will post a series of stories by Brick Cave Authors. Coordination of the Festival submissions will be done through the Festival Aggregator website FilmFreeway.com. Complete entry information is available on the Film Freeway Profile page for the Festival.

Filmmakers will be able to create a 3-10 minute film based on one of the stories. Intentionally meant to be open to interpretation, the stories are not scripts, but short stories intended to spur short film ideas.
