Tonight at 10pm the annual Brooklyn Film Race is on! In only 24 hours teams of filmmakers are expected to write, shoot, edit and score an original short film based on a shared theme and (as all worthy competitions must have) a surprise element. The completed films will then be shown on the big screen on October 21st at Brooklyn Heights Cinema. Up for grabs is $30,000 in prizes, dozens of “Best of” awards and an intense case of agida.
Launched in Manhattan in 2002 to inspire and gain exposure for independent filmmakers, Film Racing now has competitions in 21 cities, with last year’s Best Film winner screening at the NYC Gen Art Film Festival.
You can register a team online until 8:00 tonight. To find crew members and actors, the Race suggests looking here here and here. And after a nice, long nap on Sunday remember to send me a link to your film and I will post it to FreeWilly next week.
