Morgan Hill – The Poppy Jasper Film Festival (PJFF) is now accepting entries of short films in a variety of genres.
The second Poppy Jasper Film Festival takes place Nov. 11 through 13.
Submissions are taken only from California residents or students enrolled in California schools. Films must be no more than 30 minutes in length.
Categories to be judged include: drama, documentary, music, comedy and open. The latter category is meant to encompass all avant-garde films or submissions that defy traditional classification.
The Morgan Hill Experience category will once again feature films that focus on the people, history or environment of the festival host city.
The submission deadline for all films is Aug. 1.
Early entries are highly encouraged. There is a late deadline of Aug. 15 but with an additional fee.
Standard entry fee is $30 ($10 for students). Late submissions are $50 ($15 for students). Information on how to submit a film for consideration can be found at the festival Web site, www.poppyjasperfilmfest.org.
The inaugural PJFF, held last November, featured some 30 films, five workshops and 1,000 attendees.
PJFF 2 will feature special social and networking events, VIP guests, workshops, seminars and a soon to be announced keynote speaker.
