THE GADABOUT is a DIY Film Festival that curates an annual short film program that tours internationally.

Monthly Movie Challenge


The Instant Gratification movie challenge is meant to a prompt to creative action.  You only have a month, so don’t think about it too much.  Shot something, edit it, and send it in.  Then get ready for the next month.  The challenge is open to anyone who wants to participate.  You can live anywhere and send your submission in on-line.  

Each month we choose a theme.  Then you have that time to make your film and submit it.  ALL films are screened, then considered for a touring program with the Gadabout Traveling Film Festival.

Check out past submissions in our archive.
