Synopsis

During the last nine months, over 250 short films have been submitted to FilmBath by filmmakers from all over the world. It is an impressive testimony to how many people are willing to spend the time and money to produce their own personal vision. What stands out overall is just how imaginative, funny, and original those visions are. Our selection — half of which are directed by women — reflects both the quality and diversity of films we received. For these promising filmmakers, this is hopefully just the start of a career in the film business.
