Do more than go to the movies. Watch the story you’ve created on the big screen.

The Fault Line Film Festival at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau is an annual narrative short film competition for university and high school students. The festival offers cash prizes and trophies in several categories, as well as a $1,000 grand prize to the Best of Festival recipient. 

Selected films will be on campus, and award-winning filmmakers will be honored during a ceremony after the screening. Attendees will walk the red carpet leading into the theater where enthusiastic capacity crowds select their favorite film for the coveted Audience Choice Award.
