Laughlin, Nev. (PRWEB) January 14, 2009
The International UFO Congress, a leading organization for the research and documentation of UFO and related information, is currently accepting submissions to their 18th Annual Film Festival at the newly renovated Aquarius Resort and Casino in Laughlin, Nevada from February 22nd through February 28th.
Filmmakers compete in twelve categories, including Best Historical UFO Documentary, Best UFO Footage Within a Documentary, Best Abductee/Contactee Documentary, Best Animated UFO Program, and the People's Choice Award, in which the winner is decided by popular vote among the conference attendees. All other categories are judged by a panel of twelve, led by Paul Davids, producer of Roswell and Sci Fi Boys. Any UFO film released during 2008 is eligible, so send your entries in!
Entry Guidelines dictate all new UFO or Related Films released during 2008, either on video, or having a public screening, are eligible to enter. Films released prior to 2008, or to be released in 2009, may be submitted to the festival for public screening (at no charge), but will not be eligible for judging or awards. Such films will be shown only if time allows. Titles not yet released, but screened at this year's festival, may be entered next year for awards judging if they are released during the year 2009.
The EBE Awards Banquet, a UFO version of the Oscars, will be held on Saturday February 28, 2009 where winners of each category will be presented with EBE Statue.
In order to allow sufficient time to edit the clips of your film for the awards ceremony, to plan the screening schedule, and be able to list the films in the conference program, please send us your entry form, fees and films before the deadline. All forms and information can be found on the web site UfoCongress.com
Film Festival entry materials must be received by January 31, 2009 in order to be considered for the EBE Awards. Any materials received later may not be accepted.
