CBC Television is pleased to announce another season of Short Film Face Off. The critically acclaimed show has already enjoyed eight successful seasons and has developed a new audience for short films and Canadian directors. The CBC is looking for great short films from every region to take part in the program.
In Short Film Face Off films are screened and a panel of industry professionals provide commentary as well as discuss the creative and technical aspects of the films with the filmmakers.
The series has a competitive component. The studio panel will choose three finalists and the television viewing audience will ultimately vote for the top film. Sponsors will be offering a prize made up of cash and production services to be used by the winning filmmaker towards his or her next short film. That film will be licensed for broadcast by the CBC.
The winning film maker will be awarded a $30,000cash prize.
Films must be under 12 minutes in length and must have been completed in the past two years. The filmmaker must be a Canadian resident and at least 19 years of age.
We are looking for comedies and dramas. Music videos and documentaries are not eligible.Directors must be available for tapings at CBC Halifax from May 24 to May 28, 2106. The program producers will pay all travel and accommodation costs.
