The Underexposed Film Festival YC, celebrating the art of independent short film, will be Nov. 15-16 at the Community Performance Center, Rock Hill.
Film enthusiasts will be exposed, engaged, intrigued, enlightened, challenged and entertained by films that go places and do things that longer format movies only dream of.
In 2013, Underexposed continues its focus on high quality, independently created, short films where all films submitted will be entered into competition.
Independent filmmakers are invited to submit professionally presented short films in one of the following categories: narrative, documentary, animation or experimental, with a runtime of 45 minutes or less, to participate in this juried competition.
