FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Indie Cinema Series is accepting film submissions for its 2013 festival. To submit, please go to Withoutabox or to www.indiecinemaseries.com. Submissions will be accepted year-round leading up to the event. To purchase tickets for the event, please go to the Indie Cinema Series website.
ICS breaks down barriers between filmmakers and the industry in order to cultivate filmmaking talent of tomorrow. To kick things off, guests will be able to indulge in the usual exquisite catering services while networking during the first half hour of the event. This time allows for filmmakers to directly connect with panelists to receive feedback on their films and guidance for their careers.
The 2012 event held on April 1st proved to be a success reaching capacity at The Downtown Independent Theatre. The Best of the Fest Award went to the film, Donor, directed by Mark Gantt. ICS was proud to award its first Best of the Fest Student Award to Hetero, directed by Ruhi Bhalla of Santa Monica High School.
The next ICS event will take place at 4pm on March 3rd, 2013 and is sure to bring more talented filmmakers and industry guests. Panelists will include director Graeme Clifford, who is known for his work directing Frances, The Last Don, and Gleaming the Cube. With other industry guests already being added to the list, this is sure to be another successful ICS event for filmmakers, panelists, and guests.
This festival screens short projects only, 35 minutes in length or less. Projects from around the globe are welcome but they must contain subtitles if they are not in English. Beyond that the sky is the limit. We welcome all short form storytelling including dramas, comedies, music videos, webisodes, commercials and experimental projects.
Submission fee is $35.00. Submissions can be made through our website – indiecinemaseries.com, through withoutabox.com or by mail. We accept both check and credit card. Mailed payments, DVDs and other materials should be sent to the following address:
