Who wouldn't want to make a short film in two weeks with strangers? The Los Angeles Collaboration Film Challenge is back for a second year. Former Reason TV intern Mark Wagner is an organizer and passed along an invitation for all interested in participating:
The CFC is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit film festival in Los Angeles. Get paired with other filmmakers and make two movies in two weeks. Are you a writer in search of a cameraman? An editor looking for a director? Worry not wallflowers, we'll make the connection for you!
Who is this challenge for? It's for anyone! Industry pros, student filmmakers, amateur enthusiasts—all are welcome. The beauty of this experience is that you'll be working alongside many other people with a similar passion for filmmaking, and anyone can win.
On May 4th, we screen the best entries in front of a packed house of industry members— and our esteemed judges, including Kurt Loder, Matthew Lillard, and Slamdance president Peter Baxter— and hand out over $10,000 in cash and prizes. Check out our site for more info and official rules. Space is limited, so enter today!
What makes the CFC a unique experience is that it goes beyond competition. As the name suggests, this challenge is about bringing filmmakers together to transform one person's vision into a masterpiece through powerful creative partnerships.
The deadline to register as a participant is April 8.
