Enter on Film Freeway!

ZOE Short of the Week, the Premiere of "Free Lover". 


A young woman's childhood vision motivates her to pursue the US presidency, but things take a disastrous turn when the dark secrets of a prominent preacher are exposed.


FREE LOVER unfurls a tapestry of truth—a dance between unveiling, voicing, and vindicating truth itself. In a riveting twist of history, Victoria Woodhull shatters glass ceilings as she clinches the title of the first woman nominated for US President in 1872. Harnessing the power of her newspaper, she fearlessly exposes the sanctimonious facade of a revered Baptist preacher. Yet, her audacious quest for transparency lands her in the crosshairs of obscenity charges, sparking a firestorm of controversy and defiance.  WATCH on Amazon Echo.

Just say, "Alexa, open Zoe Awards! Watch Free Lover!"

Zoe Films Short of the Week Submission Guidelines:

Duration: Films should not exceed 40 minutes in length. We have a preference for shorter films, with an average runtime of around 10 minutes. Longer films, especially those over 15 minutes, undergo stricter evaluation from our judges.

Premiere Status: While we appreciate premieres, it's not a requirement. Films can be submitted regardless of their premiere status or completion date.

Rights Clearance: It's essential that all films have obtained the necessary rights and releases, including for music, to be featured by us.

Accessibility: Selected films must be freely accessible to audiences.

Refund Policy:
Once a film is submitted, the submission fee cannot be refunded. Please ensure your decision to submit is final. Submission fees cover the consideration process, and while we review thousands of submissions annually, only a small percentage are ultimately chosen for Short of the Week.
