FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GRFF ANNOUNCES 2012 SHORT SHORTS FILM COMPETITION
Cambridge, Ontario – April 23, 2012 - The Grand River Film Festival (GRFF) today announced the fifth season of its highly successful SHORT Shorts Competition. SHORT Shorts has established itself as the regional window on short film making by aspiring Canadian cinematographers. Previous winners include James Anthony Usas, Lyndon Horsfall and Ryan Alexander.
In making the announcement, Jay Morrison, Board Chair of GRFF, said that over a period of five years GRFF had worked hard to provide local filmmakers with this much needed opportunity to showcase their talent. “We now have the full attention of the local industry and are even beginning to receive submissions from other regions of the country.” “This year we are simplifying the process of submission by making the industry-standard submission tool “Withoutabox” available for convenient on-line processing”.
SHORT Shorts is open to all Canadian filmmakers and accepts films of ten minutes or less. Participants are offered support and exposure of their entry at a major networking event with a guest speaker in a proper theatrical festival setting. Cash and product prizes are offered. In addition the Competition features a special jury prize of a digital video camera for student filmmakers under the age of 19.
Submissions are now open at www.grff.ca for the October 2012 competition. Projects must be of Canadian origin and must be completed after January 1, 2011.
