Each production receives two comp tickets to the screening and a VIP bag stocked with lots of filmmaking goodies, swag, and gift certificates. An awards presentation will take place at the intermission where the filmmakers will receive custom one-of-a-kind audience choice award art pieces/award certificates. 

In past years, a combined score from 13 randomly selected audience members and a 13 person hand-picked independent filmmaker jury determined the MMP Short of the Year. Due to some odd voting patterns between the three voting blocks (audience, indie filmmakers, press), the 2013 Short of the Year Award will be determined differently this year, the specifics of which will be announced later this year.

The Mitten Movie Project is a monthly film festival dedicated to screening independent films the first Tuesday of every month at the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak. Presale tickets are available for $8 by e-mailing mangilc@yahoo.com. Tickets at the door are $10 (cash only). A pre-screening reception starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Main Art lobby where moviegoers can mingle with the directors, industry professionals, and film enthusiasts. After the screening, a Q&A session will be conducted with the filmmakers in the theatre. An afterglow party will be held at a location TBA (within walking distance of the theatre) to end the night's activities. To submit a film for consideration in the festival, visit the MMP Facebook fan page for guidelines. Submission is free. Screeners may be sent by DVD or online link.
