So you've completed that short film, and now you don't know what to do with it. Submit to festivals? Sure, but everyone does that. Now Delta Airlines is partnering with Gen Art to give you a chance to have your film seen by thousands of captive audience members strapped into their seats at 25,000 feet. Plus you can win cash (and what filmmaker can't use some of that to pay off those credit cards maxed out in completing that film?), travel, and a trip to Sundance 2007!
If you want to enter, you have until October 31, 2006. Five finalists will be chosen by "industry professionals" ( I assume by industry they mean the film industry) to have their short shown both online and on Delta's domestic transcontinental flights. All finalists will receive a pair of round-trip tickets good for any domestic Delta flight. The five finalists will be voted on through audience balloting (both online and on Delta flights) and the winner will receive (drum roll please) $10,000 cash (!), a pair of round-trip tickets valid for international travel on Delta, AND a trip to Sundance with a guest, where he or she will be feted at a celebratory party, where the winning film will be shown.
Geez, what are you waiting for? Official rules and entry form can be found right here. So dust that short off and get it in already. And if a Cinematical reader happens to have their film chosen as a finalist, let us know!
