In 2016, the fest launched with its first contest - "Flicks4Chicks" which awarded over 20 unique prizes & thousands of dollars to winning filmmakers. In 2018 the festival expands, adding four new categories of submissions under its "Casting A Light" challenge. These include calls for both narrative and documentary shorts and longer format.
