FINDING YOUR VOICE (AND BUDGET) AT NETFLIX
From a press release I just received from Film Independent:
Today Film Independent and Netflix announced the immediate launch of the Netflix FIND Your Voice Film Competition, which will award one aspiring first-time feature filmmaker the means, guidance and resources to make a full-length, narrative film.
The winner of the competition, who will own all rights to his or her film, will be determined between now and July 2009. In addition to production resources needed to make the film, the winner will receive a $150,000 cash production grant funded by Netflix, plus turnkey resources like film stock, processing, camera rental, and post production services. The total prize value is more than $350,000. Film Independent will provide advice and mentorship to the winning filmmaker throughout the production of the film and will also screen the winner’s movie at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
To apply online, as well as to get more information, please go to: www.netflix.com/findyourvoice.
There is no cost to apply. We will accept a maximum of 2000 submissions between now (January 9) and February 9, so don’t wait — apply now!
