Call for short films

P.A.A.W., Inc. Productions
We are interested in films that are bold and uncensored, films that invite us into your world, that will shock us, madden us, make us cry and laugh, films with moments that are especially lovely, serendipitous, interesting, candid or moving. There isn't a particular theme, but we are looking for very evolved relationships with the camera, moments of dependency, love, and naturalness. We like pop-culture, historic, soap, ecology, and enjoy brilliantly crafted stories. We are particularly interested in work with a global/ecological perspective, although we welcome regionalism with a global awareness.

The P.A.A.W., Inc. Film Screening Series is produced by Billy Jackson & Angela Cobb of P.A.A.W., Inc. While we enjoy a wide variety of film, the work should be entertaining and engaging; we are not putting together an audience endurance test. Very short pieces are welcome, as are fresh faces and first-time filmmakers.
