ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Roselle Park Short Film Festival, hopes to give talented, aspiring filmmakers their big breaks, is now accepting submissions for this year's event. The festival showcases films for a live audience, which will provide feedback. Awards will also be presented.

The Roselle Park Short Film Festival stands out from your typical film event. It is part of the Roselle Park Arts Festival, a larger daylong, outdoor festival of fine arts, film, and music. Nowhere else can you walk in the middle of hometown "main street" surrounded by professional artists, music and international foods of your choice while enjoying short film blocks taking place at two locations. This year's festival will take place Sept. 29.

The Original Roselle Park Loves International Shorts! Film Festival has evolved into the Roselle Park Shorts Film Festival. Through a new partnership with Kean University's Robert Busch School of Design, the Roselle Park Arts Festival has elevated its program branding to a wider, more culturally diverse and accepting arts audience.

Categories at this year's film festival are narrative shorts, documentary shorts, experimental shorts, animation, teenage filmmakers, children's shorts, the celebration of Latin America and celebration of India.

The Roselle Park Shorts Festival welcomes the breakout artist as well as the seasoned professional to screen their best, edgy, thought-provoking, colorful and inspiring work of art. Special emphasis is placed on newcomers in the field of film and the teenage filmmaker looking for an arena in which to showcase his or her art.

The Roselle Park Short Film Festival prefers short films 10 minutes or less but will consider films 25 minutes or shorter including credits. Special recognition will be given for submissions which use iPhone, iPad or Android as their central means of filmmaking.

The Roselle Park Shorts Film Festival was created from a desire of artists and volunteers from various professions looking to host a diversity of newcomers and professionals in the field of filmmaking so they may network and build their portfolio.

The film, music and art portion of the Roselle Park Arts Festival is part of the ongoing efforts to promote the growing arts community and diversity in Roselle Park, New Jersey, part of the New York City metropolitan area. Visitors are a mere 20 minutes from downtown Manhattan by car, and there is easy accessibility by New Jersey Transit train or bus.
