We are pleased to announce the call for entries for the 2014 Fargo Film Festival. All submissions must be completed through Withoutabox. Although the FFF will still accept physical media (DVDs and Blu-rays) as preview copies, we would like to encourage submitters to use Withoutabox’s secure online screener option or to send us a link to your movie on Vimeo, YouTube, or any other web-based preview source option.
The Fargo Film Festival requires entries to be submitted via Withoutabox.com, which provides cost-saving, paperless submission to film festivals around the world. Withoutabox’s internet-only submission platform features online applications via one master entry form, online fee payments, press kits, and the option to use Secure Online Screeners, an economical, eco-friendly, and secure alternative to traditional hard-copy DVD submissions. Fill out one master entry form and take advantage of quick entry, extended deadlines, and powerful submission management tools. There’s no extra cost to you, and by submitting, you’ll join Withoutabox’s global filmmaker community and stay in the loop about international exhibition opportunities.
The Fargo Film Festival would like to thank all the volunteers, audience members, panelists, visiting moviemakers, board members, projectionists, theatre staff, and everyone else who helped to make 2013 the most successful and rewarding experience to date. Our thirteenth outing featured 99 amazing movie experiences that will not be forgotten.
The quality and breadth of the movies showcased in the Fargo Film Festival continues to impress cinema devotees from the community, the region, and beyond. We will most certainly be back in 2014. If you are an audience member, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you next March.
If you are a moviemaker, we can’t wait to see your next project; submissions are open year-round.
The FFF 13 2-Minute Movie Contest featured an eclectic mix of live action, animation, fiction, non-fiction, parody, satire, drama, and comedy. As always, audiences were thrilled to experience the breadth and depth of storytelling in 120 seconds or less.

The Fargo Film Festival’s popular 2-Minute Movie Contest returns tonight, Friday, March 8, beginning at 9:30pm at the Fargo Theatre.
Admission is two dollars.
More than forty very short movies will be screened and judged this year, and the winner will have the honor of being shown during the festival’s closing night session on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
From parodies to fantasies, the 2-Minute Movie Contest showcases a wide range of content in a program where anything can – and often does – show up on the screen. You might cringe, you may roll your eyes once or twice, and you’ll almost certainly laugh at some of the movie snapshots on parade. Remember our motto: if you don’t like the movie on the screen, just wait two minutes and there will be something else to see.
FAIR WARNING: The 2-Minute Movie Contest may feature adult material, including some profanity and violent and sexual content that would typically be rated R and NC-17. Viewer discretion is advised.
