    Lights, Camera, Action!

    Your favorite fast-film contest is back: Film 2880 will once again unfold with Port Townsend Film Festival! That’s right. You still have 2,880 minutes (48hours) to make your film, and then it will be screened to our great audience as the closing act of PTFF 2010.

    Film 2880, which has been exciting PTFF audiences since 2002, is now one pillar of PTFF’s new StoryMakers project. PTFF StoryMakers encourages and supports story creation talent of all ages in our region. We really need to get stories told and heard which bring us all a new measure of understanding, insight and empathy. And we need to have more fun – which is what Film 2880 is all about.

    Details:

    Just after 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 10, 2010, while some folks are frolicking at the Wooden Boat Festival, PTFF will announce via our website and thru Email: the prop, theme and line of dialog for your weekend masterpiece. With a huge round of virtual applause, positive expectations and general hoorah from the assembled virtual audience, off you go, and before we realize it, you will have journeyed through 2,880 minutes of film, and your team will have created your film of 288 seconds — we’ll call it less than 5 minutes for round numbers.

    Before 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 12, you will either drop a disc holding your finished work in a Quicktime format at the PTFF offices on Taylor St or post to a specified web address. A select panel of film-loving judges will rank the films according to how well the films adhere to criteria and how original and polished it is, then the top 20 will play on the big silver screen at The Peter Simpson Free Cinema on Sunday September 26, 2010 as the final event of our 11th annual PT Film Festival. The films will be shown according to ranking and while the film makers will know they are in the top 20, they wont know their ranking until their film is shown. The American Legion Hall is the location for the PSFC this year, plenty of room for everyone to attend the screening of all 20 films.

    Entry Fee/Requirements:

    The entry fee is $60. The criteria will be announced on this web page and emailed to contestants. You can make your film anywhere you want, and the criteria will be emailed to you at your local time.

    *****! (Five Stars) “Absolutely brilliant…truly and completely different…something you’ve never tasted before…” Film Threat
    “A black comedy about a very strange love triangle!” Seattle Times
    “Consistently stunning images…a bizarre blend of art, sex and opium, “Dark Arc” plays like a candy-coloured version of David Lynch.” IFC News
    “Sarah Strange is as decadent as Angelina Jolie thinks she is…don’t see this movie sober!” Metroactive Movies
    “Equal parts Film Noir intrigue, pop culture send-up, brain teaser and visual feast.” American Cinematheque

    My new film MARROW is going to premiere in 5 days! At Cinequest in San Jose.
    Very interesting to see the synopsis they wrote, the picture they chose out of the 6 I sent, and the tag line they came up with.
