2017 Festival Season is Here!

From the heart of the Midwest, the Kalamazoo-based North by Midwest Micro-Budget Film Festival looks for submissions from the Great Lakes. Our categories include: Long Feature, Short Feature, Short Documentary/Profile, Animation, and an all new challenge…MicroCam. MicroCam means anything that is shot on your small device (iPhone, iPad, Android, GoPro). You can use any editing software of your choice – as long as it is under 5 minutes.
Micro-Budget means that the budget must be equal or less than $10,000 for Long Features and $5,000 for other categories (not including equipment costs).
