Well, though it scares me just a little bit, I’ve decided to open up our programme to filmmaker submissions! Though I’ve loved working with our partners at Future Shorts and the National Film Board of Canada, I want to begin curating things a little more actively.
So although I may be approaching filmmakers directly some of the time, I want to leave the gate open a bit for filmmakers to contact me, too. I’ve created a form using the Submittable service, and am charging what I feel is a fair submission fee, just US$10, which covers my time, weeds out spammy submissions, and might even help sustain the series going forward. Time will tell.
So, I guess what I want to do now is share the big SUBMIT link. Please tell your filmmaking friends!
P.S. Obviously our July 13 programme is locked at this point, so anything submitted now will be in consideration for our next screening in October.
