5 Shorts Project Season 6

Accepting Submissions Now

About the Project

The 5 Shorts Project assists aspiring filmmakers with creating a short film. Each participant learns the filmmaking process from development to distribution. We’ve assisted local actors, directors, and crew with little to no experience with gaining industry credit via IMDb. When completed, each season of 5 Shorts ends with a screening and is aired on Comcast and Verizon via PhillyCam. Many of the films created via this project have gone on to screen at film festivals.
