Northwest Film Center Announces
Call for Entries Deadline: August 1, 2011
The Northwest Film Center asks Northwest filmmakers to send their recent work for consideration for the 38th Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival.
The entry deadline is Monday August 1, 2011 (postmark).
The Festival runs November 11-19, 2011.
Formerly known as the Northwest Film & Video Festival, the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival continues the Film Center’s 38-year tradition of bringing moving image artists of the Northwest together to share ideas, discover resources available to them, to inspire, be inspired and to showcase their finest work to greater audiences.
Entries are judged by a prominent filmmaker, curator, or critic who determines the Festival awards. Past judges have included Gus Van Sant, Matt Groening, Todd Haynes, Christine Vachon, and Sundance and Outfest programmer, John Cooper. Generally, 30-45 shorts, features and documentaries are screened during the Festival, then 10-15 shorts are selected for the Best of the Northwest Tour program, which travels the following year throughout the Northwest to media arts centers, museums, arts councils, and universities.
Permanent residents of Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington may submit two works of any length or genre released since August 1, 2009 and not previously entered in the Festival. Student entries (college and university only) must be from a school located in the Northwest.
There is no entry fee and submissions are automatically considered for the Film Center’s year-round Northwest Tracking series and the Portland International Film Festival. More information and entry forms are available at the Northwest Film Center’s web site:
