filmtoberfest – seeking your (preferably non-porn) short films

(Shameless plug alert)

We, the lil’ indie folks at QLP, are getting ready for Vancouver’s inaugural Filmtoberfest and we need your films! Yes, your short films. Or films about shorts. Either is good. However, anything over fifteen minutes is probably too long. So are capris.

Anyway, Quarter-Life Productions, in association with 591 Productions, are currently seeking local independent filmmakers with short films for the inaugural event! An evening of film, frivolity (and possibly leiderhosen), this event will kick off in October 2009 and will be an excellent opportunity to get together with other local filmmakers and industry professionals and enjoy the cinematic delights October has to offer! Since, really, I don’t know about you, but that’s why I got into this business. October rocks, and so does film. Why not put them together and see what happens? There will also likely be drinking after.

But enough about the event, right now we are looking for independent short films of any genre so there is an evening of fun to begin with. Sure we could just get together and drink, but then it’s not Filmtoberfest, it’s just Oktoberfest, and I’m pretty sure that’s already been done. Not only does this night need to be awesome, but it’s needs to be unforgetable. So unforgetable that even the after-party binges won’t blitzkrieg those precious memories. Dude, we need these films like zombies need brains. So send us your films! Now. Because I told you to.

The gritty details:

CRITERIA:
Films can be up to and including 15 minutes long.

They must be fiction or creative non-fiction.

The more imaginative and quirky the better!

If you are interested in having your miniature masterpiece screen with us, we need a screener DVD and some submission information. You email us the information (see below) and then mail us the screener DVD.

Filmtoberfest will take place at 7 pm on October 10, 2009, at the Laura C. Muir Theatre for the Performing Arts at Douglas College at 700 Royal Ave in New Westminster.
