Open Screen Night – May 22

May 22
Kum & Go Theater at Des Moines Social Club
Doors 6pm / Show 7pm


Filmmakers and film lovers: We are proud to announce another installment of Open Screen Night, in partnership with Des Moines Social Club.


Have you ever been to an open mic? This is the same idea, only with video as opposed to live performances. Open Screen is a forum for any filmmaker to share their work with a live audience. Submit your own work or just come to enjoy the show. There will be a meet-and-greet afterwards in the Basement bar (downstairs from the Kum & Go Theater).

Submissions can include just about anything: short films, music videos, experimental pieces, found footage, etc. We prefer films of 10 minutes or less, just to keep the night moving. Works that have screened previously, such as via the 48-hour Film Festival, or are already posted online, are perfectly fine to submit.


To submit, please e-mail the following to

– Title of the work and name of the person making the submission
– A short summary of the submission
– A link to a downloadable version of the film, such as via WeTransfer, Dropbox, etc.


The submission committee reserves the right to decide which films are included, though our intention is to include as many films as possible within the time allotted.


Submission Deadline: May 15
