Blank Frame

The Oregon Media Production Award is an open competition in which filmmakers are asked to make a short 2-3 minute film on the topic of “The Frame.”

What is it? How does it relate to filmmaking? Why is it so important? Is it important? What’s on the other side? Us? All of these deep questions and more can be investigated. Filmmakers are invited to submit their films to Ben Popp, ben@nwfilm.org no later than October 1, 2016. The top ten films will be screened throughout the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival this November 10-19, 2016.

The winning film will receive $1,000 in cash, or $1,500 in cash (if film is shot outside of Portland) from the Governor’s Office of Film and Television to be applied towards making a film to be screened the following year. In addition, we are working with the Oregon Media Production Association (OMPA) and its members to contribute in-kind production donations to help you along the way.

So get cracking (but don’t crack the frame)!
