Time is ticking down for the open submission period for this year’s Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival! Film entries will be accepted up to July 4, 2015 (Independence Day). Click for guidelines, fee and submission form.
Those who are interested in being part of this truly creative event will find a new opportunity this year.
We’re asking filmmakers to produce a short film (3 to 5 minutes) that is silent. These short silent films must be submitted to the MIFF by Aug. 1. Then a team of judges will select the best six entries, and these films will be paired with musical composers who will score the music for the film. The dynamic duos (film director/ film composer) will finish the project and present the music to the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, and the film and its orchestration will be performed live under the direction of conductor Aaron Collins at the MIFF on Saturday, Oct. 24.
The Dynamic Duos presentation will be part of an incredible film-oriented musical program performed that day.
The silent film contest is open to all filmmakers, and there is no entry fee for those films. Get excited and get motivated!
