ShortDocs Challenge

Once a year we change it up and encourage the production of new work via our ShortDocs Challenge. In cahoots with a different artistic partner each year, we design a set of rules and invite everyone - producers and radio fans alike - to submit short audio works that follow these rules. Ah, the possibilities in "creativity through constraint!"

2017 will be a hiatus year for ShortDocs.
As we plan for 2018... your suggestions for artistic partners are welcome - just drop us an email at info@thirdcoastfestival.org.
