Celebrity judges DJ Khaled, Steve Buscemi, Jessica Alba, Steve Aoki, David Gordon Green, Shay Mitchell, and Vashtie will pick 10 winning stories to be screened at the festival as part of a new category called Tribeca Snapchat Shorts.

The goal is to spotlight the “best Snapchat Stories from across the U.S.” with a special focus on comedy. The festival experimented with a custom Vine category in 2013, so this isn’t its first foray into the world of social media filmmaking, but it is its first time allowing submissions longer than six seconds.
All you have to do to submit is save your Snapchat story to your camera roll, and then upload it to the festival’s website. Shorts need to be less than 200 seconds in length and submitted by Tuesday, March 8.
