Borscht Film Festival Meet-and-Greet, Call for Entries
Two types of entries are possible:
1. Short films: The Borscht Film Festival will screen up to ten short films for its exhibition program. By "short," they mean under 15 minutes. Any genre, style, subject matter, etc., is possible, but there's one catch: You have to be under 30. (Unfortunately, this means my totally awesome documentary, Fourteen and a Half Minutes of P. Scott Sleeping, is ineligible. Maybe next year...) The deadline for short films is September 1, 2009.
2. CCCV stories: The festival will also select and pair six screenwriters and six filmmakers to collaborate on original stories about Miami. Screen writers should send in a headshot and their completed script of under 15 pages. Directors should send in a headshot and a reel in DVD, Quicktime, AVI, or web link format. (You can also submit a completed narrative film instead.) Both groups have to fill out entry forms too. The deadline for CCCV proposals is June 1, 2009.
You can pick up entry forms at the meet-and-greet or download them from their respective websites -- Miami World Cinema Center and Borscht.
Now go buy some black-framed glasses and get to shooting.
