The 4th annual Film Racing Tour will be coming to Miami on April 30th and is inviting filmmakers of all levels of experience to test their skills by creating an original short film in just 24 hours. Registration is currently open and its deadline is set to April 28th, 2010.
The 2010 tour, kicking off in Boston and Minneapolis at the end of March, will be visiting 20 cities across North America and gives aspiring filmmakers the chance to have their work screened in theaters across the country and compete for thousands in cash and prizes.
In the Miami Film Race, filmmaking teams are e-mailed a theme and surprise element (such as a prop or an action that must be performed in the film) at 10:00 p.m. on Friday, April 30th. The filmmakers then have 24 hours to create an original short film no longer than 4 minutes and submit their finished film at a designated drop-off location by the 10:00 p.m. deadline the next evening. All of the completed films premiere for the public at the Bill Cosford Cinema on May 5th and the top films from Miami will compete for thousands in cash and prizes against winning films from across North America.
Film Racing is operated by NYC Midnight Movie Making Madness, LLC, an organization that has been holding unique film competitions since 2002. Since launching the Film Racing Tour in 2007, NYC Midnight has awarded over $160,000 in cash and prizes to the winning filmmakers. “In addition to the prizes, Film Racing gives anyone the opportunity to go through the entire filmmaking process overnight and be rewarded with the experience of seeing an audience react to their work on the big screen,” says competition director, Charlie Weisman.
