The Creative Minds Filmmaker Institute is designed to provide Short Filmmakers a platform to showcase their product while also educating them on how to capitalize on an international marketplace where films are bought, sold, distributed and financed.
Each participant will be put into a diverse group of filmmakers and given a camera, a laptop (with editing software) a microphone and 7 days to complete a 5-minute short film as a part of a Short Film Competition. A panel of industry professionals judge the short films and the top 3 teams are awarded prizes and trophies.
Filmmaker Institute participants will also be able to attend daily networking happy hours, filmmaker workshops and Cinema Master Classes (Hosted by Industry Icons like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese & Sydney Pollack). All of which is geared towards aiding participants in expanding their knowledge of the film business, while also affording them the opportunity to make key contacts that will help them establish a career in the film industry.
