Call for submissions: Virgin Radio 95.3 Fake Film Festival (Vancouver)

Vancouver’s Virgin Radio 95.3 recently launched its first ever Fake Film Festival. They are asking participants to submit a video which recreates an existing movie in 60 seconds or less. They don't want just a single scene though, but the entire film to be encapsulated. It is a bit like a lightning fast version of the "Sweding" done by the characters in the Michel Gondry film Be Kind Rewind.

The deadline for entries is January 25, 2011 at 12 p.m, when entries must be uploaded to the Virgin Radio 95.3 website. Movies will be judged by Virgin Radio's staff on accuracy, quality and the contestant's self-promotion.

Ten finalists will be selected and invited to walk the red carpet at the Fake Film Festival on January 28, 2011 at Five Sixty (650 Seymour Street), where the selected films will be screened. Then a winning film will be chosen to receive a prize of $10,000 in cash and the Fake Film Festival trophy.

Festival submissions are open to all residents of British Columbia.

We want YOU!

To pull out your camera, tap into your creative vein and recreate your favourite movie.


Not a scene - the ENTIRE MOVIE!

Write it. Shoot it. Edit it and Post it HERE.

Our panel of cinemaphiles will review the submissions and select our favourites.
Entries will be evaluated by a panel of station staff and will be graded in three categories to achieve a final score.
Accuracy – does the film accurately represent the movie it is intended to reflect?
Quality – is the film entertaining?
Promotion – how well did the contestant promote their movie?
The top ten film makers will be invited to the Fake Film Festival January 28, 2011
where their film will be screened for a live audience.

The winning film scores

$10,000 CASH!*

The submission deadline for films to be considered is 12:00 noon on Tuesday, January 25, 2011.
*Ratings do not necessarily determine the winner of Virgin Radio's 2011 Fake Film Fest.

You must include the Virgin 953 Fake Film Festival logo within your video...
