Lexington Film League: DO-ERS Community Video Contest

Make Yourself Necessary

Community Video Contest
Lights, Community, Action!

What are people doing in a neighborhood near you? We want you to film it and tell us the story!

The Lexington Film League invites all filmmakers and those interested in making films to go out and create a 5 minute (or less) video about what’s going on in your community. Find a group or do it yourself, the idea is to just go out and make it!

All submissions must be in before January 15th, 2010 and will be reviewed by a team of judges and voted on by YOU! The winner will receive a cash prize, half of which will be donated to the non-profit organization of their choice.

This is open to all filmmakers and community members across Kentucky.

Winner(s) will be announced during a special event held in February 2010.

All submissions will be posted on our YouTube channel and available for you and your peers to vote on.

Is this one time or is it an annual contest?

(not sure if previous post went through) I work for a non-profit and we are wondering if this is an annual contest, or if it's a one-time deal. Thanks for the opportunity.

The deadline has been extended to February 1st--do you want to submit a film?

We will have other, different contests in the future...

I like your post on the confrontation with the police on Ocean Beach (San Francisco)--very familiar to me as I grew in San Diege (near another Ocean Beach)--your analysis is very sophisticated
