Call for entries: short films by or about people with disabilities

Independent Filmmaker Project Minnesota (IFP MN), Partnership Resources Inc. (PRI) and Twin Cities Public Television (tptMN) are partnering to create a new shorts program for the 2015 Reel Abilities Film Festival Minneapolis-St. Paul called Short Films by MN Filmmakers of All Abilities.

The festival, which will be held June 11-14 at multiple venues, is looking for films by or about people with disabilities that creatively and compellingly explore, discuss and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience. All filmmakers are encouraged to find out more and apply online at

There is no application fee. Filmmakers may submit up to three short works of 20 minutes or less in length. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 15. Selected films will be included in the new shorts program at the festival.

In addition, a limited number of entries that are five minutes or less in running time will be compiled into a one-hour documentary produced by tptMN, will premiere at the festival and then be broadcast on the tptMN channel in late July.
