Filmshift 2012 Call For Entries Open!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Calling all Filmmakers!  Filmshift Festival 2012′s “Call For Entries” is open!  If you or someone you know has a film, we want to see it!   Our filmmaker awards are simply amazing this year, so now there’s even more reason to submit!:

We offer cash prizes totaling $1250 and awards from industry leaders such as Final Draft professional screenwriting software, free entry into Script Pipeline’s“pitch fest” and screenplay contest, as well as superlative awards.

Ten percent of the gross ticket sales are donated to Christopher’s Haven, a local charity that finds low-cost or no-cost housing for families staying in Boston for their child’s cancer treatment.  The festival was created by independent filmmaker, Jeremy Jed Hammel, as a way to combine three of his passions: The art of film, bringing people together, and giving back to charity in his local community.

Filmshift is held every year at the Somerville Theater in Somerville, MA.  They present independent films of most genres and have special Showcases for local films, student films, and films that have a connection to Environmental or Sustainable topics.  Some films that

Filmshift has presented in the past include “Earthwork,” starring Academy-Award nominee, John Hawkes (for “Winter’s Bone,”) Comic Con 2010 winner, “Marwencol,” and “The Burning Season,” narrated by Hugh Jackman.  Filmshift is seeking films that tell strong and unique stories.

Please add us on Facebook and share our info with your circle of friends, family, and colleagues, if that’s how you roll!
