New York, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Sponsored by the New York City Independent Film Festival and Cieri Media, the Parody 48 Hour Film Contest is guaranteed to be the most fun possible staying up for 2 days straight. The contest will run during the first weekend of May.
Teams registered on the Parody 48 Hour Film website will get to come for a drink at the opening party. They will meet in Midtown Manhattan at 7pm, the location to be disclosed the day before. Each team will receive a packet with the name of the movie that they have to parody along with the rules of the contest.
Contest Coordinator Laura Murphy says, “The chosen movies are blockbusters that can be easily found on Netflix or Amazon. The fun starts once they receive the packet. Parody 48 Hour Film Contest is exactly what you’d think it is. They have to script, cast, shoot, edit, lay down a soundtrack and get us the final version on DVD by Sunday of the same weekend at 7pm. We are excited to see what these talented filmmakers can do in two days.”
Participants meet again on that Sunday at 7pm, two days later, to submit their completed films. Filmmakers meeting all the requirements will have their films screened shortly after the contest. Attendees of the screenings will rate each film, and Audience Choice Awards will be given to the three top-rated films. Winning films will receive bragging rights and a prize package.
Teams interested in joining in all the fun can fill out the registration form available on their website.
Cieri Media is open to corporate sponsorship for the film contest. Dennis Cieri, CEO of Cieri Media said, “We are getting a lot of buzz among students. This is going to be a fun adventure for anyone who is into films and filmmaking. This would be a great opportunity to build your brand and get exposure among the audience as we are expecting good reach.” Companies interested in partnering with Parody 48 Hour Film Contest can send them an email.
