This is your chance to play with incredible footage! NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society offer filmmakers around the world a chance to share their works inspired by, and using, real NASA imagery through "CineSpace," a short film competition, now in its third year, premiering at Houston Cinema Arts Festival, November 9-16, 2017.

Films featuring real NASA footage collected from more than 50 years of its history will be judged on the creativity, innovation, and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of spaceflight. Last year, a Kiwi film was among the winners.

NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society will choose Finalist or "Official Selections," which will screen at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival in November 2017. Other screenings may also take place throughout the year. NASA judges will award prizes from the Finalist pool.

Criteria: They are considering short video, film, and digital-media submissions of 10 minutes or less and are seeking works of all genres and styles including but not limited to experimental, narrative, documentary, comedy, drama, animation, ambient, music videos, re-mix, sports, horror, and underground.

They are looking for submissions that:
� Are based on innovative artistic presentation and storytelling.
� Provoke an emotional response.
� Show a mastery of filmmaking craftsmanship.

Submissions MUST contain at least 10% (based on total running time - not including credits) of NASA video imagery. More than 10% can be used and still photos can also be used in addition to the video imagery. This imagery may be obtained through the NASA Image Archives or other publicly available means such as YouTube, etc.

Entries close July 31, so get exploring!
