Video Race: Friday, September 14, 5pm – Sunday, September 16, 5pm
Screening: Friday, September 22, 6pm
Filmmakers of all ages (either as a team or solo) will have the chance to create a one-to-seven-minute video that will be screened at the Academy Art Museum on Friday, September 22. Films must incorporate a word and theme that will be provided to competitors via email on Friday, September 14 at 5 pm. Budding and experienced filmmakers will have just 48 hours to shoot, edit, and submit a video by the deadline of Sunday, September 16 at 5 pm.
A panel of judges will choose the Best in Show for two categories—Student/Family (at least 50% of the filmmaking team are under 18) and Adult—in addition to a People’s Choice Award. Best in Show winners will receive bragging rights and cash prizes!
Registration for this event will open on June 20.
Organized in collaboration with filmmaker Francisco Salazar.
Francisco Salazar is an award-winning filmmaker whose first feature “Nowhere,” which he co-directed with his brother, was selected into more than 20 film festivals, including Outfest Fusion, the OutShine Film Festival, Cinequest Film Festival, and Woods Hole Film Festival, where it was the runner-up Jury Award winner and Second Runner Up for the Audience Award.
