Greentopia | FILM is commissioning the production of 3 short documentaries to be part of the film festival March 17-21, 2015. The deadline for all proposals is December 5, 2014 at Midnight. If selected, all filmmakers will be contacted on or before December 15, 2014 to begin production.
All films must tell a story of something happening in the Greater Rochester area that embraces the concept of sustainability or community building in some way. We are looking for positive success stories – no docs trying to expose some injustice.
Here are examples of films produced over the past two festivals:
All proposals must include:
- A filmmaker bio
- Contact info
- Treatment outlining the story or concept of the film
- Samples of past work.
All films must be 3-4 minutes in length, produced in HD1080 and delivered as a Quicktime file by March 1, 2015.
All filmmakers are expected to create a copyrighted work with all the proper licenses for images and/or music used. Filmmakers will retain the copyright of the film, but will sign a release giving
Greentopia | FILM the non-exclusive right to use the work in perpetuity in all media for promotion and screening. All films must add a title to the opening of the film of “Greentopia | FILM presents”
All films will receive upon delivery, $1000 and 2 all-access passes to the festival, (does not include Short Courses Event) as well as the extreme gratitude of the Greentopia | FILM Committee. As an added benefit, most of these films go on to help the organizations that are highlighted in the stories, giving back and serving the theme of sustainability and community building.
Please submit all proposals and any questions via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
