For the 12th consecutive year, BSFS sponsors The Balticon Sunday Night Short Film Festival (BSNSFF). Held traditionally on (surprise!) Sunday night, Balticon Sunday Night Short Film Festival presents animated and live action science fiction, fantasy, and horror films from independent filmmakers all over the world. The focus of the Balticon Sunday Night Short Film Festival (BSNSFF) is on independently produced science fact, science fiction, fantasy and horror live action and animation projects under 52 minutes run time, which have been completed no earlier than in the two years prior to the festival year. This is a competitive festival with winners in two (sometimes three) categories determined by audience rating. Award ribbons and/or certificates are given for audience favorite animated, live action and specialty films (science fact, music videos).

For entry guidelines and forms, or for more information about the Balticon Film Festival, see the following documents:

In addition, the BSNSFF seeks to support the work of independent filmmakers by premiering an independently produced feature-length film on Friday night and we are open to considering a family-friendly premier for Saturday afternoon. We hope to bring you other independent feature-length and short films as time and space allow.

We accept proposals for film premiers and other feature films as well as film festival submissions year-round.
