Call for Entries: The 180 Second Microcinema Film Festival

11.25.11 @ 11:33AM Tags : , , ,

I get a fair number of emails from other filmmakers who have made a short, posted it to Vimeo, and are wondering what to do next. Finding an audience and gaining exposure is a definite challenge, and due to time constraints lately I haven’t posted as many shorts or exposure opportunities as I’d like. So here’s one opportunity: the 180 Second Microcinema Film Festival is calling for submissions of, as you can guess from the title, 3 minute shorts. Got a film of this length, or an idea for one? The deadline is December 15th. More details:

The first cycle of the 180 Microcinema Festival is seeking submissions for the Narrative category. Filmmakers and students that are at least 18 years old from every country are eligible to participate. Complete rules and requirements can be found at Submissions must be delivered electronically by December 15, 2011. Submissions can be made through the website, and there is a processing fee of $10 per film. Selected films will be eligible for a Jury Award chosen by a panel headed by 2011 Academy Award winning producer Stefanie Walmsley (God of Love). Visitors to the online festival will be able to cast their vote for the audience choice award. The Awards ceremony will take place on March 10, 2012.

Winners will be flown in for the awards ceremony in the Philippines, gain exposure to international film industry leaders, and will be awarded production funds of $30,000 to collaborate on 180-second films as pitches for a Transmedia Development Deal.

  • Awards will be in our country?! Cool! Maybe I can attend the ceremonies then.:)

  • Just made something under that time. I’ll have to check this out.

  • Hey Koo- good on you for sharing this link!
    It’ll be a great opportunity fr both filmmakers & Transmedia artists here in the Philippines and globally to get into. As you said, there’s a ton of cash to be had, some potentially great exposure, and maybe even a trip to Mad-nila!

    Nice to see another opportunity for folks here in Southeast Asia to get their work up and infront of eyeballs– and with a Transmedia angle to the event, this should be interesting to see what plays out from both a local and global perspective for the 3 minute limit.

    Looking forward to updates, when you get them- Cheers, Marc

  • Yes. Very cool!
