WANTED!!! Short films of all genres; action, adventure, sci-fi, horror, comedy, drama, fantasy, romance, etc. As long as it takes place in the 1980’s, send it over! Your film must have a running time between 5-15 minutes (credits included). You may submit as many films as you wish.
Chosen films will become part of the anthology. If chosen, your film(s) must become exclusive to the anthology as of Dec 31st, 2019. It does not matter if your films are currently online, or have previously been distributed via Video/Television/Digital/Theatrical, just as long as they are taken offline by Dec 31st, 2019
Your films must take place in the 1980’s (or at the very least, appear as if they could take place during that time period). It does not matter when your film was made. If it was actually made in the 80’s, don’t hesitate to send it! If it was made in the 70’s or earlier, and it takes place in a futuristic 1980’s, we’ll take those, too!
You must have all rights to the short that you are submitting, including music clearances, releases from actors, etc. Keep in mind, however, that film and music posters, logos, trademarks and many things that helped make the 80’s, well, the 80’s, IS NOT considered unusable copyrighted material despite popular belief. You DO NOT need to avoid nor blur out logos and trademarks in most cases.

Filmmakers of selected films will share 60% of future net profits. All films will be listed on IMDb under the anthology. You may list your films separately as stand alone shorts as well, if you haven’t already done so. Please send a direct link of your film(s) via Vimeo, YouTube or wetransfer.com to email@example.com. If your film is chosen we will need you to send a copy of it at the highest quality possible.
