The sixth Ningbo Short Film Festival began accepting submissions on Nov 22.

According to the organizers, entries can be submitted before Dec 22 and should fall into three categories - micro films, short videos, and scripts for live action role-playing (LARP) games.

A total of 21 different awards are up for grabs, including the Golden Snail Award for Best Short Film, the Best Director Award, and the Best Foreign Language Film Award, with the total prize money amounting to nearly 200,000 yuan ($30,769.2).

It will be the first time for the festival to include scripts for LARP games as a section. All of the award winners will be announced at the festival in late January next year.

Greece is set to attend the event as the guest of honor for the festival.

Over the years, the festival has been steadily raising its international profile. In 2020, the festival became a member of the Short Film Conference (SFC).

The event is co-sponsored by the Publicity Department of the Ningbo Municipal Party Committee, the Ningbo bureau of culture, radio, television and tourism, the foreign affairs office of the Ningbo municipal people's government, Ningbo Radio and Television Group, as well as the Ningbo Short Film Association.
