Indie Grits Film Festival, the Southeast’s premier film and culture festival for DIY media-makers in Columbia, S.C., is seeking film submissions in five categories: feature, short, experimental, animated and student films. The eighth annual Indie Grits will take place April 11 – 20, 2014.

Indie Grits invites submissions from all levels of filmmakers and films with ties to Southeastern culture.

With an independent mentality and far-reaching artistic scope, it says, the juried festival is especially receptive to first-time media makers.
