Now in its 8th year, CineSpace is a short film competition developed by the Houston Cinema Arts Society in collaboration with NASA. Filmmakers from around the world create original works incorporating imagery from NASA’s archival footage, with winners selected by Academy Award Nominated Director and Houston native, Richard Linklater. On average, over 200 entries are submitted each year with each film being no longer than 10 minutes in length and comprised of at least 10 percent publicly available NASA footage. About 15 films are selected as finalists and are screened during the annual Houston Cinema Arts Festival every November with the winners announced in a special event broadcast by Space Channel to their online streaming service.

Highlights of the CineSpace Awards day on November 13 include:

  • 4:00 pm: Doors open: Join us at the Orange Show for a Space-Themed Live DJ Set, Food and Beverage trucks; Interactive Art and STEM Exhibits, and a Space Movie Costume Contest
  • 6:00 pm: Panels curated by the Houston Cinema Arts Society and NASA to highlight the intersection of Arts & Sciences while uplifting independent film
  • 7:00 pm: Movie Screenings and Awards; emceed by Space Channel and attended by finalist filmmakers
  • 8:30 pm: Closing musical performance by jazz guitarist David Becker

“The short films created for CineSpace are often surprising, inspiring, and moving,” said Jim Townsend, Executive Director, Houston Cinema Arts Society. “NASA is such a tremendous part of Houston’s identity, and through our unique relationships with them and with our friends at Space Channel, we’re able to connect with and amplify creative voices from all over the world. We can’t wait to share these incredible cinematic gems in an inclusive, multicultural event that will be fun and educational for the entire family.” 

It is an honor to once again join with the Houston Cinema Arts Society to celebrate and recognize the winners of the NASA CineSpace short film competition,” said Bob Schefferine, Chief Operations Officer, Space Channel. “Based on last year’s entries, I am sure the winners will showcase an imaginative, visionary representation of the intersection of space and the arts.
