Calling all filmmakers and film enthusiasts:
#joinus at 3S Artspace, share your short film, and watch shorts from filmmakers in the region and Seacoast community.


Open Screen
is Boston's one and only open mic night for filmmakers and it’s returning to Portsmouth at 3S Artspace! At Open Screen, local filmmakers are encouraged to share their films the way they were intended to be seen: projected in a dark room with lively strangers.


This event will be divided in half. The first part of the evening will feature select short films from the 2018-2019 Boston Open Screen season. The second part will feature the work of Seacoast filmmakers (that means YOU!). If you are a local filmmaker with a short film, this your chance to share it with an audience. 

At Open Screen, you never quite know what the night’s program will be. Always unexpected! Always entertaining! This is a one of a kind film series that has been wildly popular in Boston for over 10 years. We are thrilled to be bringing it back to 3S.



How it works:
Open Screen works just like a music open mic. If you have a film to present, show up 30 minutes before the event to get on the sign-up list. Films will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and must be under 10 minutes in length. We prefer you bring your film on USB drive, but you can check out our Screening Formats to see everything we accept. If you're bringing a digital file, please follow directions and consult the Screening Formats sheet


*Some film shorts may contain mature content.

Ticket purchases are non-refundable.
