The Never Sets Film Festival is once again seeking the creative contributions of people from across the state. Returning for a second year with a theme of “Stories from the North,” the festival is asking for short films and short screenplays created by Alaskans for an upcoming competition. Last year, the festival received submissions from all around Alaska and was able to present the films over the course of several days at events in Anchorage, Juneau, Barrow and Bethel.
Brought to the community by The Institute of The North, The Never Sets Film Festival is a chance to showcase the work of homegrown talent. Organizers are hoping for a bigger and better festival this year that will help connect aspiring and established filmmakers within Alaska to each other and to audiences in communities of all sizes.
The festival is currently accepting submissions of short films (49 minutes or fewer) and screenplays (49 pages or fewer) through June 15th. Films accepted by the festival will be screened for the public in Anchorage on August 18th as part of The Institute of the North’s Week of the Arctic. Screening events in other communities will be held that same season (dates and venues TBD).
Submissions can be mailed to:
