KAMLOOPS - The short-film filmmaker who wins a new $300 bursary through the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission will also see their film screened at the Kamloops Independent Short Shorts Film Festival in March.
The bursary is offered by the commission in partnership with the Kamloops Film Society's Independent Shorts Film Festival, though the funds themselves originate with Downtown Reel Productions. The production company worked with the commission to scout locations, and is donating the money to thank them for their hard work.
The winning film must be less than five minutes and will be shown at the Independent Short Shorts Film Festival taking place during the Kamloops Film Festival, March, 2015.
To compete for the bursary, applicants must be residents of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. They need to submit a short written description of their film and explain how the money will be used. Other materials such as pictures can be included to help convey the concept. The subject matter must be about a person, place or attraction, an event or tell a story that takes place in the district.
Post-secondary and high school class projects are also eligible and teachers can submit an application.
Applications must be submitted to the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission by Friday, Oct. 17, either by mail to 465 Victoria St. Kamloops, B.C., B2C 2A9 or can be dropped off on the 4th floor above the Kamloops Library. As well, they can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful applicant will receive the bursary Friday, Oct. 31.
