This innovative contest encourages amateurs and professionals alike to push the boundaries of cinema with the latest piece of communication technology, the smartphone. Participants will receive a special invitation to attend the AmerAsia opening gala March 1st, 2012 where independent Montreal filmmaker Christos Sourligas (director of Happy Slapping–the first film shot entirely on an iPhone) will announce the the theme and provide a mentorship session for all participants.
Over the next 72 hours, participants will shoot, edit, and upload their videos. The fifteen best shorts will be screened March 9th at the Société des arts technologiques, with prizes awarded to the top three submissions!
The top prize is 1000$, plus production and distribution contacts with Radio Canada and Videographe!
