The Swim Shorts Film Festival seeks to celebrate Northeast Florida's waterways through the lens of your camera. We invite filmmakers of all ages and ability levels to send us short films featuring Northeast Florida's waters and/or their favorite water activities. All proceeds from the festival, including ticket sales and donations, will go to the St. Johns Riverkeeper organization for use in their public awareness and conservation efforts.

A panel of volunteer judges will select the best entries from each age group.  The festival showcase is scheduled at Sun Ray Cinemas on August 18, 2016. Details about how to enter are at swimshortsfilmfest.org
