CineSpace is a collaboration between NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society (HCAS) that offers filmmakers around the world a chance to share their works inspired by, and using, actual NASA imagery through “CineSpace”, a short film competition. Winners are announced and screen along with all finalists at the annual Houston Cinema Arts Festival which is held in November. Previous winners have gone on to screen across the nation and in space on the I.S.S.
By entering, you agree to these Rules and warrant that you are eligible to enter the Competition.
At any time the General Public may visit the NASA IMAGE ARCHIVE and download imagery for public use. There is also a full list of archival sites on this website here: NASA Archives. Access to this Archive is always available year-round, with the exception of any technical or maintenance related shutdowns. Note that the Archives are constantly updated and refreshed with new material.
The general use of these images is governed by NASA and US Federal Regulations and these regulations supersede any CineSpace Guidelines or Terms. The CineSpace Guidelines, Terms, and FAQ endeavor to indicate important NASA regulations for the use of imagery in connection with this Competition.
You must submit an audiovisual work (a “Submission”) that complies with the requirements of these Guidelines and Terms no later than September 8, 2023, using the means described below. Entries will be judged in September 2023 (the “Judging Period”). Finalists will be notified on or before October 31, 2022. Award Winners will be announced during the Houston Cinema and Arts Festival at the CineSpace premiere and award ceremony.
