Filmmakers have until Friday, Jan. 8 to enter their work in an Independent Film Competition sponsored by Western Nevada College, the Bob Boldrick Theatre, Carson City Library and the Friends of the CC Library. Winners will be shown at WNC during the Carson City International Film Weekend Feb. 18-20.
Selection committee members are looking for films that increase appreciation of cultural differences and understanding of social issues. The films can be narrative or documentary, live action or animation, and foreign or domestic. Non-English films should be subtitled. Filmmakers are restricted to one film in DVD format, not to exceed 90 minutes. The films should be labeled with the film title, filmmakerâ€™s name and contact information on the front of the disc.
There is no cost to enter the contest, but contestants must fill out an entry form and sign a permission to view form. Films should be sent to Valerie Andersen at WNCâ€™s Carson City Campus.
To obtain an entry form and more information, contact Valerie.Andersen@wnc.edu, phone 775-445-3222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Entry forms are also available on the Carson City International Film Weekend Facebook page.
