Call for Submissions for Volume 6;
JSF Editorial Board Joined by Sam Green

The Journal of Short Film invites you to submit your short film for consideration in Volume 6 (Winter 2006). The deadline is November 8th. The JSF—a DVD quarterly published since 2005—has an open and free submissions process. See www.theJSF.org for guidelines.

This call for submissions is noteworthy because the JSF will be joined by a guest editor for this volume. Sam Green will join the editorial board and make the JSF bicoastal for the first time. Sam’s film The Weather Underground was nominated for an Academy Award in 2004. His most recent short film, Lot 63, Grave C, screened at Sundance this year. Sam lives in San Francisco and divides his time between teaching, filmmaking, and helping run the Free History Project.

The Journal continues to be a leading advocate of short film. In May, the JSF was named on the Best Magazines of 2005 list in The Library Journal (a leading trade mag for publishers and libraries). We have already published 40 independent filmmakers and in October we’ll add nine more (in Vol. 5). The volumes continue to be excellent and diverse collections that include narrative, documentary, and experimental films.
