The heart of the Mosquers is the film submissions.

Over the past ten years, we have strived to spread a message of creativity, positivity, and compassion to the general public. Films in the competition have made us laugh, have made us cry, and most importantly, made us think.  

Do you want to carry the torch?  Do you want the chance to win up to $5500?  Do you want to be recognized for your talent? If you have said YES to any of these questions please submit your film by August 7th, 2017. The Mosquers is always looking for creative filmmakers to elevate the competition while leaving a lasting impact on our vast and diverse audiences.
