Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) April 13, 2006
The Milwaukee Short Film Festival is seeking submissions for its eighth annual edition. The festival is an award-winning, one-day event June 4, 2006. The final entry deadline is April 22, 2006.
“Following the success of last year’s festival, our first year screening international films, we are looking forward to receiving even more exciting submissions from an even wider range of filmmakers,” says founder Ross Bigley. “We are particularly eager to view the outstanding student and Wisconsin submissions as the festival was initially established to support these filmmakers with a considerable cash prize.”
The Milwaukee Short Film Festival grand prize, a $ 1,000 cash award, recognizes a film that best embodies the spirit of independent filmmaking. The competition is open to short films and videos of all genres including animation. To be eligible for screening, entries must be under 20 minutes in length.
The Milwaukee Short Film Festival is a competitive festival with multiple distinct awards, including recognition for acting, directing and cinematography. A popular Audience Award encourages the crowd to be actively engaged in the screening and festival atmosphere.
Film submission guidelines and forms are available at www.dirtyjobfilms.com/filmfest.asp. The 2005 Milwaukee Short Film Festival was an exciting year – screening shorts from across the U.S. and multiple foreign countries along with staples from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. MSFF was even recognized in MovieMaker Magazine’s Winter 2006 issue as the Best Local Shorts Festival. MSFF is a presentation of Milwaukee production companies, Dirty Job Films and Old Skool Productions, and is funded by local sponsorship. A local festival with an international reach, MSFF is organized and run by Milwaukee filmmakers to give greater exposure to emerging independent and student filmmakers.
