3 Fests You Should Enter This Week

For You “American Beauty” Fans:

Jameson First Shot Competition

Deadline to submit: January 1st, 2013 (*must be received by midnight PST*)

We’re looking for more outstanding writer/directors to enter the 2013 competition, where we will be offering the same incredible opportunity; giving people a ‘first shot’ in the film industry by having their short film produced by Kevin Spacey and Trigger Street Productions and giving them the chance to direct Willem Dafoe in the leading role. In order to enter you must be from South Africa, Russia or the US (but not California – sorry, legal constraints beyond our control), be at least 25 years-old and write a script of no more than 7 pages based on one of three themes (‘Legendary’ OR ‘Humorous’ OR a ‘Very Tall Tale’).”
