Cuarón and Cuarón launch short film competition

9 Oct

Digital Arts announces a new short film competition from Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón. To celebrate the UK release of Año Uña, filmmakers are invited to submit their 3-minute films assembled from still photographs. The deadline for submissions has been extended to 19 November. The winning submission will be screened at the UK premiere 28 November. The jury will include Cuarón, Cuarón, Eireann Harper, Darius Khondji, Chris Coen, Mia Bays, and Tom Munro. (OMG THIS IS SO COOL)

“I’m thrilled that this short film competition will open doors for filmmakers to play with new languages and demonstrate that the creative process of film making can be more accessible than is often assumed.”

Check out the competition here. Entries are due 7 19 November via Youtube.

    This is awesome. Totally. I would like to know where the auditions will take place, if you you please.

    No auditions unfortunately Fofy, this is a competition for film makers. That’s not to say you can’t find one to star for though!
