Who will boast next year's Troubadours? You?

Last week, the Thin Line Film Festival revealed thematic and submission information for its annual international documentary event. In the past, the shebang has boasted screenings of Troubadours, which posted up on PBS weeks after Thin Line 2011, as well as Oscar short-listed films Enemies of the People and This Way of Life.

The fest, which "reviews all forms of documentaries regardless of topic, type, style, length, or format," according to a release, is currently accepting entries for doc flicks in the following categories: music, making an impact, hybrids and mobile video.

If accepted, you could win all sorts of awards, ranging from best feature to an audience choice designation.

There are four different deadlines -- August 31 for overachievers and November 30 for total slackers are the bookends.

The Thin Line Film Festival website, which lays out other particulars such as fees, has all of the relevant details.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
