Submissions sought for film festival

FilmCAN invites filmmakers to submit entries for contest

Grab your cameras. The Victoria Film Festival’s FilmCAN is back.

FilmCAN returns this year, expanding its reach and offering a great opportunity for young filmmakers to have a taste of the film making process from creation to distribution and promotion, right up to the exhibition of their film at a major film festival.

The FilmCAN competition invites budding young filmmakers from middle and high schools on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands to make a short film on a subject of their choice and upload it to the FilmCAN website.

The winning films from each category will be awarded prizes and be shown on the big screen at the Victoria Film Festival.

Films must be between two and four minutes in length and be uploaded to http://vimeo.com/groups/filmcan by Dec. 15 to be eligible.

More details can be found at www.victoriafilmfestival.com or by contacting mentor@victoriafilmfestival.com
