International competition honoring short films and the people who make them.
The Short Film Slam is a bimonthly competition presented by The Madlab Post that provides a platform for emerging and established filmmakers to showcase their work. Each round, a selection of up to twelve short films will be screened for local audiences who get to cast a vote for their favorite film. The highest rated film in each round will be declared "Movie of the Month" during the following month. The highest rated "in-competition" films in each round will become a Finalist and advance to the final round.
No premiere requirement
