FILM CONTEST: Netflix $350K Film Contest
I haven’t been this excited since the Fox series “On the Lot” when I was supposed to win a million dollar production deal with Steven Spielbergh. And before that it was the time I was supposed to win a Miramax deal with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck during “Project Greenlight.”
After each of those, I swore off contests and festivals. I would just make it on my own and show them. I’d show them ALL….mwoooohahahaha!
Ahem. But now, there’s this:
Netflix and Film Independent have joined forces to find a “film maker with a story to tell”. They said they will award $150K cash production grant, plus turn-key resources like film stock, processing, camera rental and post-production services, for a total prize value of more than $350K.
And they won’t just help make the movie, they will distribute it online at Netflix.
Go sign up and keep us posted at Wired4Film if you’re selected. We won’t hate you and be bitter. We’re christians!
DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 9th, 2009
