Be a Reviewer for DC Shorts
Do you like film? Can you articulate your opinion in a few carefully crafted sentences? Do you respect the opinions of others? Do you have the passion to watch and evaluate 30 to 40 movies, or read 10 to 20 scripts? If so, then you will make an incredible reviewer.
This year, the DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competitions expect a record number of films and scripts to be entered! In order to process these entries, we require the integrity and dedication of our volunteer screeners and readers.
This page has all of the information about the process, commitment, and expectations for our screeners. After reading all of the information, if you are still interested (and we hope you are!), fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
