  1. Any films with a Nebraska connection will be considered. Just be sure to explain what the connection is in order for our judging committee to make an accurate judgement. Failure to explain may result in a film being disqualified.

    All films can be submitted via Film Freeway or via the snail mail address located on this page.


  2. what if you are curentlly doing a project but your not like a real film maker person but have shot videos and edited them

  3. Prairie Lights accepts and reviews submissions from all Nebraska filmmakers, regardless of experience. Please feel free to submit whatever you’d like!

  4. Is there an age limit for those who are submitting a film? I am a mid teen and I am considering in submitting one of my films.
