About:

We are hugely excited to have an international online short film competition! We are looking for original, engaging films and especially want to celebrate filmmakers working with minimal resources. The competition has 4 editions a year, so if you miss a deadline, be sure to submit to the next!


Awards & Prizes:

For each edition of the competition, the best films will be promoted on the Stir and Fry YouTube channel. Of these selected films, there will be 1 winner in each category.

We will respect filmmakers' wishes for their work to remain private if they are submitting to other festivals.
