“CREATING. TOGETHER.”

This concept/phrase MUST make an appearance in your video and can be used in any way that serves your character, plot, or story as a whole. We are simply looking for the best creative integration.  It can also be delivered via text exposition rather than an actor saying it, but must be part of your story/theme, and not a street sign your character passes going 60MPH :/

30 DAYS.  30 SECONDS.  30 FINALISTS

CALL FOR ENTRIES.  Top 30 finalists will be invited to screen in front of audiences at the DaVinci International Film Festival on June 22nd, 2019 on a movie lot in Hollywood CA.  Finalists will be notified on June 7th, and the WINNER of the IN-30 Challenge will be announced at DIFF’s Award Ceremony.  Enter for your shot to win cash and prizes!

RULES & REGS

Have a creative idea for a 30-second film?  WE WANT TO SEE IT!  But we have a couple guidelines before you submit, so please read carefully.  First of all, we are super excited to see what you come up with, but we need your content to be PG RATED.  This is important, and if you don’t know what “PG” rating is, then  please follow the link below in our “At A Glance” section to learn more.

Next we will need for your submission to be a TOTAL RUNNING TIME (TRT) of thirty (30) seconds.  This includes any/all credits, if you’re including them.  Next, your content must be fictional narrative; no PSA’s or branded content.

And finally, you MUST include our theme stated (“CREATING. TOGETHER.”).  This is can be inserted in any form and at any time, but MUST come out of an actors mouth or be seen or read via exposition within your story.  Either way, it must be built into your story.  Questions: in30@davincifilmfestival.com.
