From the producers and financers of 'Bend it Like Beckham,' 'Buena VistaSocial Club,' 'Kill Bill 2,' and 'Hero,' comes the Filmaka.com contest! Filmaka.com is a new contest site where filmmakers get to submit their short films for viewing, voting, and selection. The winner of the contest receives a feature film deal with the some of the world's best known independent producers at Filmaka.com.
You may begin uploading your films on December 15th - but you can log on now to find out the theme of the contest. All are invited to submit their short
films based on the contest theme - no longer than 3 minutes - at the Entry Level. The top 15 filmmakers from the Entry Level will win $500 and a chance to move to the Jury Level where you get $1000 to make a new short. The Jury Level films will be viewed and voted on by an industry panel including actors Colin Firth & Bill Pullman and directors Neil LaBute, John Madden, and Paul Schrader. First place at the Jury Level wins $3500 and second place wins $1500. Both move up to the Finals Level, where you're in the running to win a feature film deal!
This is the only contest that presents an opportunity to filmmakers by filmmakers. You may upload your films beginning December 15th until December 23rd. Log onto http://www.filmaka.com for complete contest rules and deadlines. May the best director win!
