Time Warner Cable and IFC Want to Take You to Sundance 2011

By , posted 27 September 2010

Well, kind of. If you're a US resident and have a short film which is 2-5 minutes long (or want to make one in time for the deadline), Time Warner Cable and IFC are running a short film contest, the grand prize for which is four nights in Park City in January for you and your lucky friend to soak up all that is the Sundance Film Festival.

A panel of expert judges will choose up to 25 finalists based on creativity, quality and content. Joe Public can view entries and vote for their favourite on Time Warner Cable's YouTube channel from November 9th through November 16st. A combination of the expert panel and online voting from the public will determine four Grand Prize winners, which will be announced in December. The panel of judges includes indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg ('Hannah Takes the Stairs'), horror film director Ti West ('House of the Devil'), IFC and Sundance Channel President, Evan Shapiro, and IFC News host Matt Singer.

Films can be about almost anything, although the usual caveats apply about content which may be considered sensitive by a global media company's audience. The deadline for submissions is October 15. Full details and submission form at www.youtube.com/timewarnercable.
