DepicT! is Watershed’s international short film competition as part of Encounters International Film Festival that challenges filmmakers to create super-shorts of under 90 seconds.
We want filmmakers worldwide to show their stuff in just a minute and a half. DepicT! is open to anyone, on any budget, from anywhere in the world working in any genre. Just make sure your super short is distinctive, imaginative and engaging to be in with a chance of winning some priceless industry exposure and exclusive prizes.
Every year the shortlisted DepicT! filmmakers, often in that crucial early stage in their career, are invited to the Encounters International Film Festival and offered a prime industry platform. The festival is a priceless opportunity for filmmakers to promote their work and make contact with a broad range of international industry professionals from distributors and producers to funding bodies and exhibitors, as well as other filmmakers and, of course, enthusiastic short film fans.
All the shortlisted DepicT! films are screened at the extremely popular (and consistently sold out) DepicT! showcase, where the winners are announced in front of the audience. Winning films have regularly gone on to be screened at other international film festivals and been picked up by commercial distributors while DepicT! filmmakers have gone on to carve themselves successful careers in the film industry ““ some DepicT! alumni have even been named Stars of Tomorrow by industry mag Screen International.
