About the FOLCS International Short Film Competition:
The Forum on Law, Culture & Society’s annual International Short Film Competition was created in 2011 in conjunction with the FOLCS Film Series. Independent and aspiring filmmakers from around the globe are invited to submit original short films on a legal theme. Entrants are free to construe this theme broadly and choose any subject in which the relationship between law, justice, and society can be fashioned into a unique visual story. The films can be about rights that have been denied, harms that have gone unaddressed, courtroom decisions that are in desperate need of an appeal, government regulations and statutes that are fundamentally unfair, or attempts to express what justice really means. (e.g., documentary, drama, animation, comedy) is permitted.
