Are You Ready To

 
MAKE YOUR MARK
 

By producing a 3-5 minute short filmover the course of 

51-HOURS IN A SINGLE WEEKEND??

We know that there are some great undiscovered producers out there. This is the chance for them to show us what they're made of. How fast can you mobilize your team? Craft your story? Find your locations? Hunt down your costumes? Call in your favors? Cut the pieces together?

We're not looking for Lawrence of Arabia, here. Your running time should be three to five minutes. For a great producer, that's plenty of time in which to tell a mesmerizing story.

Of course, just to keep you honest, we have some specifics that your story must include. (We can't have you go shooting the whole thing in advance, after all.)

When the contest opens, we'll post the specific elements that your film will have to utilize at the beginning of the competition, Friday, August 24, 2018. Elements will be drawn from the work of our Honoree Producer.


This year’s 2018 Competition honors the legacy of Producer/Director SYDNEY POLLACK.

Sydney Pollack worked in, and excelled, in just about every area of the Stage, Film and TV Industries; first as an actor, and then as an acting instructor working with Sanford Meisner in New York. 

Mr. Pollack transitioned into directing for TV, where he earned Emmy Award Nominations and the DGA statue for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Drama.  

From TV, Sydney moved into feature films where he directed and/or produced Academy Award winning films Out of Africa, Tootsie, The Reader,  Michael Clayton and Cold Mountain; just to name but a very few of his iconic films.

Sydney Pollack’s list of films and his legacy are substantial, working with some of the greatest actors to bring stories to life, telling stories that entertained and enlightened audiences through a range of dramatic and comedic genres.

Finally, the top 10 Finalists will be honored and their short films screened at the Awards Show held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 in association with New Filmmakers LA.
