CFC-MPI

MPI TO SPONSOR SHOWCASE SCREENING

Our friends at the Collaboration Filmmakers Challenge are entering the 8th year of their two-week short film competition in LA. Several filmmakers in the MPI network have participated in the past, thanks to the amazing prizes and networking opportunities. We are proud to sponsor the screening on June 7th.  

Participants who sign up to make a film must also give help to at least one other filmmaker, as well as receive help from another filmmaker in the competition.

If you don’t want to make your own film, you can sign up as a Collaborator and help others make their movies -- this is a great option for actors, for example. Check out this video for more information about CFC and its filmmakers.

Sign up on the CFC website—the cost is $40 for Filmmakers and $25 for Collaborators.

The best films, as chosen by CFC’s celebrity jury, will be shown to a full house at the prestigious Harmony Gold Theater. You'll have the chance to have your film seen by Two and a Half Men co-creator Lee Aronsohn and Iron Man producer Peter Billingsley. More judges will be announced soon.

They’ll also award over $12,000 in cash prizes, camera gear from RED and Moondog Labs, production software from Final Draft and Red Giant, and a chance to win a $10,000 grant towards your next film.

Here are the dates for this year's competition:

  • May 14—CFC Kickoff Party

  • May 15-29—Competition Period

  • June 7—Short Film Premiere (proudly sponsored by the Moving Picture Institute)
