Film Racing: Seattle
Seattle will be one of the participating cities in this year’s “24-Hour Film Race,” a full-throttle filmmaking competition that challenges production teams from around the world to create a four-minute short in just one day. Since 2002, Film Racing has not only fueled some seriously creative competition, it has also helped churn out over 2,000 dynamic and innovative works, many of which have gone on to receive significant online and industry exposure. The independent Seattle leg of the “Race” kicks off next month, April 29-30, and will feature a premiere screening event for competing filmmakers at the Harvard Exit Theater. Seattle film “racers” also have a chance to win thousands in cash and prizes. Space is limited so make sure to register your filmmaking team early.

The Seattle Times
Ready for your three minutes of fame, Seattle filmmakers? The Seattle Times and Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) are partnering together yet again to present Three Minute Masterpiece (3MM), a digital film contest which invites Seattleites to submit video shorts of three minutes or less. Winning entries will show at SIFF 2011 and stream on seattletimes.com, and one grand-prize victor will get a full series pass to this year’s big film fest! Here’s how it works: Make a three-minute film on any subject you like, as long as it’s suitable for a family-newspaper audience—i.e. skip on the gratuitous sex, violence or bad language—and then upload it to the 3MM YouTube Channel. Be sure to include your contact information with your film submission. The competition also has a special category for filmmakers under 18: The J. Michael Rima award for young directors will be handed out in addition to the 3MM prizes, and honorres will see their films screened as part of SIFF’s FutureWave shorts program. The deadline for all 3MM entries is April 25 by 11:59 pm. For even more scoop on the competition, follow the link above.
