Updates for August and September

Hi all,
Just added some deadlines for August and September. Also a reminder that REEL13 has an ongoing call for their short film contest- the winner receives a licensing fee, is featured on their site, and is screened on the PBS New York station with a classic and an indie feature film as part of their Saturday movie night. You don’t have to be from the NY area to enter, and the short can be any type, live action, animation, etc.
best of luck,
