TVCortos (ShortsTV’s sister channel in Latin America) is hosting the Best of Latin America Short Film Festival 2020 and we’re looking for great Spanish language short movies made by Latin filmmakers!
Our goal is to raise artistic awareness of Latin filmmakers (films must be in Spanish language) in the Hollywood film community and to open doors for possible television deals and other opportunities, including qualifying for an nomination of an Academy Award.
TVCortos will award prizes totaling $2,500 to the short films chosen in this year’s Best of Latin America Short Film Festival. The top three films will receive a screening in Los Angeles, CA for seven days and gain *Academy Award Qualification status. Every film entered will be considered for a television broadcast deal (filmmakers do not have to accept).
*Winning films must provide a DCP up to the AMPAS standards to be considered for the qualification screenings: https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/91aa_short_films.pdf

- March 1, 2020: Short movie submission opens
- April 30, 2020: Short movie submission closes
- May 31, 2020: Winner announced on TVCortos television and on TVCortos social media platforms
