Aspiring Film Directors Could Catch Their Big Break During Humanities Week 2007

Cell Phone Film Contest pictureInstead of reaching for a digital camera or video equipment, filmmakers should grab their cell phones. That's because films submitted to the Cell Film Festival contest must be made entirely by cell phone, from shooting and editing to saving and publishing. The contest is open to all Case Western Reserve University students, faculty and staff, as well as the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Music. Co-sponsored by Sprint, the grand prize is $1,000, and the winning film, along with runners-up, will be featured at the Cell Film Festival and Awards Ceremony on April 15 during Humanities Week 2007, which is sponsored by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities. Submission deadline is March 25. Read more about the contest, rules and eligibility guidelines.
