The Fault Line Film Festival at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau is an annual narrative short film competition for university and high school students throughout the Midwest. The festival, celebrating its 12th year, offers cash prizes and trophies in several categories, as well as a $1000 grand prize to the Best of Festival recipient.

Selected films will be screened at the 950-seat Bedell Performance Hall, and award-winning filmmakers will be honored during a ceremony after the screening. Attendees have their pictures taken on the red carpet leading into the theater. Enthusiastic capacity crowds select their favorite film for the Audience Choice Award. After the screenings, door prizes are given away, and a local venue will host an after-party for filmmakers.

Student filmmakers are invited to attend free master classes during the festival, presented by national and regional film professionals.
