The Emerging Filmmakers Project (EFP) has been showcasing the best of Denver’s indie film scene since 2002. Curated and hosted by volunteers from the local film community, the EFP is a great place to screen your work, network with other creatives in town, and to support your fellow indie filmmakers. It’s held the third Thursday of every month at 7 PM, tickets are just $5 and the event is open to the public.

Under the leadership of longtime Executive Director and Host Patrick Sheridan the program has flourished to include multiple annual film festivals, including EFPalooza and Colorado Independent Women of Film, as well as educational classes and workshops.

Attention filmmakers: Your movie might deserve better than to be seen only on your friend’s computer. At the same time, perhaps not. We can put it to our EFP Submissions Team to decide. This group has experience and is more than qualified in determining a films presentability. If your film is entertaining or educational or thought provoking to a degree that merits screening, we would be proud to show it on The Bug screen. That is the main purpose of this project.

To submit your work, please visit and fill out our online submission form and include a link to an online screener. Movies that screen at The Bug Theatre may be eligible for listing on
