Quarantine Filmmaking Competition

The Skinny

We at CinemaSlice are hyper sensitive to the filmmakers' drive to make movies-- and this whole coronavirus pandemic has really put a damper on large film productions... But worry not, Slicers! CinemaSlice presents the 2020 Quarantine Filmmaking Competition.

Over the course of 1 week (3/18-3/26) you can take your mind off of things-- by focusing on writing, shooting, and editing a short film! And at the very end, we'll hold an online live-stream to showcase all films submitted.

Feel free to make a movie about the pandemic, or about ANYTHING else 🙂 The point is to simply have fun and do what you love-- SAFELY. Seriously... Use only actors, locations, and gear that are not at risk of infection. DO NOT risk contamination.

The Rules

CALLING ALL FILMMAKERS Create a short film using only whats accessible from your self-quarantine. You can use your cell phone, DSLR, or any other video camera you have available! You’re welcome to produce a film in ANY genre— but MUST stick to the following rules:

  • Opening text over 5sec black: “Made for 2020 Quarantine Film Competition”
  • Film must be UNDER 5 mins (this includes credits) • Post your film live on FaceBook or YouTube
  • Tag @CinemaSlicers and include #QuarantineFilm and #SliceThePlanet
  • Share you submission with CinemaSlice to be considered for awards
  • DEADLINE: before 3/26 at 10PM

A ONE WEEK MULTI-GENRE FILMMAKING COMPETITION!

Just a quick note: your submission will need to be made during the course of the competition (3/18-3/26).
In order to prevent any submissions of films made prior to this event, each film must feature a common prop: a comb/brush of ANY kind! Be creative. Be cinematic.
