Cinema at Citygarden

May 31- June 30, 2019

The fifth edition of Cinema at Citygarden – a co-presentation of Cinema St. Louis (CSL) and Gateway Foundation – invites St. Louis-area filmmakers to let their imaginations blossom by creating short works that incorporate Nature as a key element. This juried competition will award cash prizes – $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third place – to the top three entries. The winning shorts will then be featured as part of a looped program that will screen on Citygarden’s video wall.

Only St. Louis area filmmakers are eligible to apply and must live within a 120-mile radius of St. Louis. All conceivable approaches – including experimental, narrative, animated, and documentary – are acceptable.

The event is now accepting submissions. Films may be submitted through FilmFreeway using the link to the right.
