Northwest Film Forum’s film challenges are a great way to improve your filmmaking skills, think creatively and meet new people! Come see the results of our latest Pocket Film Challenge, or try your hand at this winter’s challenge.
Pocket Film Challenge Screenings
November 22 at 8pm
Northwest Film Forum’s latest obstruction for the frisky filmmaker was The Pocket Film Challenge: a small screen, big picture experience.
Filmmakers were asked to use mobile phones to shoot and edit three-minute, one-take films. One-take-films are shot without interruption, from the moment of turning the camera on to the moment of turning the camera off. Any text or music was added using only what is technologically capable with the mobile device. Tonight, we’ll put all submitted small screen images in our big screen cinema.
Announcing the Winter 2010-11 Film Challenge!
Sound First Film Challenge
One of the key elements of any good movie is its sound design and mix. It is an element that often if not always comes as a response to images that the filmmaker shot and audio they recorded on location. This quarter for our film challenge we provide filmmakers with some pre-recorded and mixed sound asking them to create images to accompany. Are you up for the challenge?
Films must be submitted on 35mm, 16mm, BETA SP, DVCAM, or DVD. All submitted works will be screened.
Submissions are due February 17; screenings take place on February 24.
