Festival screenings are held at the world-renowned Gateway Film Center, named one of the 20 best art houses on the continent by Sundance.

Show Us Your Shorts Details

Join us on the first Saturday of each month for locally-made short films at Gateway Film Center. Like an open-mic night, register your short film by email in advance, then come see it on the big screen with a voting audience. Tickets are $5 dollars, and the audience-chosen best short takes home the dough!

 

Here’s how it works:

- On the first Saturday of every month, filmmakers, friends, and fans gather in the Gateway Film Center – $5 to get in.

- Filmmakers enter their shorts the Wednesday before each event by giving the facilitator an online screening link – YouTube or Vimeo.

- A maximum of eight movies are screened per month – 10 minute max runtime.

- Submissions are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

- After screening all shorts for the evening, the audience votes on its favorite.

- The winner gets the door – all $5 covers paid for that night, with the chance to be chosen as the year’s best overall short.

 

Though winning short films will be decided by the audience in attendance each month, a panel of three expert judges will be assembled for a year-end event on Saturday, June 1, 2019 to decide the year’s overall winning short film and a winning screenplay in a new “Show Us Your Screenplays” division. Short screenplays (no longer than ten pages) will be submitted once annually by May 4, 2019, then reviewed by our panel of expert judges. The winning screenplay will be paired with the filmmakers behind the year's best overall short, with a $4,000 collaborative grant to produce the new short film. The newly produced short film will then screen during GFC’s pre-show program for one month for audiences to enjoy.

 

In order to submit films for Show Us Your Shorts, video links should be sent to [email protected] with the following info:

- The subject line should read “Show Us Your Shorts – Your Name – Name of Film”'

- The body of the email should include your name, the name of the film, and runtime of the film, as well as a link to a video hosting website (either Youtube or Vimeo) which can stream your video. Only Youtube or Vimeo links will be accepted and videos must be downloadable.

 

Videos must be 10 minutes in length or less and uploaded on either Youtube.com or Vimeo.com. Filmmakers must submit their video entries by 6:00 p.m. the Wednesday before each Show Us Your Shorts date. All filmmakers must be in attendance the night of the show, and must be 18 or older to participate.

 

Tickets for this monthly event are $5 with shorts screening at 4:30 p.m., including a meet-up after the show at 6:00 p.m. 

 

Support for Show Us Your Shorts and Show Us Your Screenplays is made possible by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

Summer of '94 Details

Summer of Bond Details

Gateway Film Center has created another one-of-a-kind maverick movie experience: For the very first time anywhere, GFC will present all 26 theatrical Bond films – including the two non-canon, non-Eon Productions films – chronologically, in one sexy series.

And even more extraordinary, every film will be played in restored 4K.

Join GFC for the complete theatrical Bond collection, presented in its most pristine format ever. It’s a double-oh summer of cloak and dagger intrigue, impossible action, hot cars and even hotter beautiful people … and of course, martinis shaken, not stirred. Summer of Bond, July 1 to Sept. 10 – only at GFC.

GFC's Summer of Bond is made possible in partnership with Svedka Imported Vodka.

Ghibli at GFC Details

In 2016, the film center presented Ghibli at GFC, a four-month screening series of anime giant Studio Ghibli’s films.

Now, the series has returned to the film center, which will run November 22 through December 25.
