Sparrow Film Project at Museum of the Moving Image

The 12th Annual Sparrow Film Project

June 6–11, 2015

Based in Queens and international in scope, the Sparrow Film Project is an annual competition that challenges filmmakers to make three minute films in three weeks. For each round, filmmakers are guided by a different set of criteria based on a new theme, and each team draws a unique assignment from a hat. Started six years ago by a group of friends who got together at their local bar to talk about filmmaking, the project now receives entries from all over the world. For the twelfth edition, the Museum of the Moving Image will screen every entry, as well as host the gala and awards show. For more information, visit

A 12th Annual Sparrow Film Project Festival pass, good for admission to all films, is available for $20.
