Welcome to the Quiet on the Set Short Film Competition!

The metro public libraries will not be running the Quiet on the Set short film competition in 2011. But please do check out the wonderful films created in 2009 and 2010: The Quiet on the Set 2009 Collection and 2010 Collection are available for check-out at the libraries, and many of the short films are on YouTube.

Thank you for your interest in Quiet on the Set!
