At the Say It Loud Film Festival, we celebrate music, poetry and short films that speak the language of courage, compassion and authenticity. Our intention is simple: unite, engage and inspire artists and audience members all over the world through one common goal – transform the narrative of pop culture. Say It Loud takes place during the springtime in Baltimore City, showcasing local poets, local musicians and both local/international short films. It is free to attend and open to the public.


1. SHORTS FILMS: Films should be no longer than 20 minutes.

2. STUDENT MADE: Films shot while in a Masters, BA, or secondary program qualify. Filmmakers will be required to show a student ID or other proof at the time of selection.

3. PROFESSIONAL MADE: Films created by non-student filmmakers.

* Festival organizers reserve the right not to give an award in a category, if the quality or quantity of submissions does not warrant it; if an otherwise high quality film falls in a genre category that is not viable this year for these stated reasons, the film will either be shown and compete in a related genre category, or be considered by judges the following year without the filmmaker’s need to resubmit it.
