Harte of the Gulf Film Competition

Corpus Christi, Texas

Regular Deadline: Sep 16, 2017

Our mission is to engage the Gulf of Mexico Community through education and film and to showcase the work of local filmmakers.  If you have a short film addressing an ocean or coastal issue concerning the Gulf of Mexico, from your own backyard to the deep sea, please think about entering it into our Harte of the Gulf Film Competition.

Films should be no longer than 15 minutes and address an ocean or coastal topic concerning the Gulf of Mexico region. Films can be fiction or nonfiction. Some possible examples of film topics are:

  • Water quality and availability
  • Fishing practices
  • Coastal land use patterns
  • Sustainability
  • Coastal resiliency
  • Conservation, preservation, and restoration
  • Social perspectives, and
  • Economic or ecological value of ecosystems from the coast all the way to the deep sea.

In an effort to include filmmakers from around the entire Gulf of Mexico region, films will be accepted in languages other than English, but must have English subtitles. You can submit your film into one of two categories: High School or General Public. A Committee, which includes the Harte of the Gulf Film Competition project managers, will select 1st-3rd place winners in each category and each winner will be awarded a monetary prize. Please reference the Submission Guidelines form for further instructions on submitting a film to the competition.
