Best Shorts
Best Shorts is a new competition that recognizes the achievements of short filmmakers worldwide. It is not your typical film festival. Rather, the goal of Best Shorts is to give talented directors, producers, videographers, actors and actresses the positive exposure they need by promoting award winning films through press releases, media outlets, blog entries, etc. The Best Shorts competition gives awards not just for short films and documentaries but also for television pilots, public service announcements, experimental and special purpose productions, commercials, music videos, movie trailers, mobile and pocket media, tube-length videos, webisodes, new media and more. As long as your clip is 57 minutes or less, it is eligible for entry. The submission deadline for the competition is December 17, 2010. For more information, follow the link.

Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs
The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs will present a range of public art projects this spring and summer, from Water Calling—featuring artists and filmmakers creating a series of temporary artworks and short films about water—to an artist residency in a Fremont Bridge tower. The Water Calling projects were commissioned with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) 1% for Art funds. The projects reflect SPU’s stewardship of Seattle’s water resources, including drinking water and drainage, and the city’s Restore Our Waters initiative to protect and restore Seattle’s urban waterways.
