Make Your Mark Weekend Shorts Competition - Winners Honored

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The 2018 iteration of the PGA Make Your Mark Weekend Shorts Competition, honoring the film legacy of Sydney Pollack, wrapped up with a rousing awards show celebration held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 in association with New Filmmakers LA. 

Held at the South Park Center in downtown Los Angeles, the short films of the final top 10 entrants were screened, followed by the announcement of the seven-honorable mention winners, then the top three prize winners.  PGA National Board member Charles Howard served as the MC for the show.

First Place winner was End of the Line produced by Matt Angel & Suzanne Coote; Second Place winner was Loose Ends produced by Carlos M. Jimenez & Auriel Jimenez; and Third Place winner was Edge of Internment produced by Tricia Lee & Ally Iseman.

The top three prize winners received “Producers Packages” of gift certificates valued at over $103,000 from our sponsors: Cinelease, Sim International (Cameras & Post Production), Alternative Digital Camera Rentals, CFG Rentals and On Location Rentals, Pathbender Media Holdings, Smart Post Sound, EVS, Quixote Studios and Jon Brence Distribution Consultant.  Additionally, mentorships from PGA Members/Producers Chris Moore, Ian Bryce and Steven Wolfe will be provided to the top three finalists.

The entries were evaluated by an all-star group of judges, including producers and PGA National Board members William Horberg, Hawk Koch, Gary Lucchesi, Lori McCreary, and Bruna Papandrea, as well as actress Jeanne Tripplehorn.
