I got this announcement a few days ago through Susie Labry about a film contest for films with a law and justice focus. This is an area I'm personally very interested in and have a few ideas for films about .. but I need others to make it happen. If you have any ideas, scripts, etc. and/or crew skills, let me know. This would be a great project and it's SHORT films they want. Under about a half hour long. Here's the details. It has a link directly to the University running the contest. You don't have to be a student there to enter:
Meetup Message from: Erin Bundra, via Louisiana FilmmakersCall for EntriesHi,
I wanted to let you and your members know that the Forum on Law, Culture & Society is currently accepting film submissions for our 2014 International Shorts Competition on a legal or justice theme!
“Legal theme" may be broadly construed. You are free to choose any subject in which the relationship between law, justice, and society can be fashioned into a unique visual story. For example, your film could be about rights that have been denied, harms that have gone unaddressed, the aftereffects of courtroom decisions, government regulations and statutes, or an attempt to take a new look at what “justice” really means.
Any genre (animation, comedy, documentary, drama, musical, sci-fi, etc.) is permitted. Films should run 20 minutes or less, there is no minimum runtime requirement.
Finalist shorts will be screened at the FOLCS Awards Night during the Ninth Annual Forum Film Festival in New York City in October 2014. Each year the Film Festival features renowned filmmakers, actors, writers, journalists, public intellectuals, and members of the legal profession. You can check out our past Film Festivals and guests at FOLCS.org
2014 Awards include Best Short, Best Screenplay, Outstanding Woman Filmmaker, Young Filmmaker Award, & Audience Favorite. Deadlines: Early: May 30th; Regular: June 30th; Late: August 1st.
