The final requirement is that you must include the line “Only in Dubois County” spoken or shown visually at some point in your film and not in the title or credits.

Once you have your project together, visit Dubois County and make your short film! More details on this and other requirements are included in the entry form/information available on the SWIFF website at: www.filmduboiscounty.com
