Call for 2019 NASA CineSpace Short Film Competition.
March 14, 2019
I am reaching out to let you and your students know about the 2019 NASA CineSpace Short Film Competition. Sponsored by NASA and the Houston Cinema Arts Film Festival, this annual competition challenges filmmakers worldwide to create an original film (10 minutes or less) utilizing NASA's archival footage.
We'd love to have your students participate! Here are the key things to know:
Anyone age 18 and older can participate
Films can be about ANYTHING, but must include at least 10% (based on the video’s total running time, not including credits) of actual NASA footage provided by NASA
Special guest judge Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Dazed & Confused) will help determine the winning short films
Finalist films will screen at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival in November 2019, and other selected screenings/film festivals across the country, as well as on NASA TV and even the International Space Station
In addition to the screenings, a total of $26,000 in cash prizes will be distributed to the top six films
Submissions are accepted now through July 15, 2019
Full competition details can be found at this link: https://tongal.com/project/Cinespace2019
Thank you for your consideration! I'd be happy to answer any questions about the competition or help craft a message for your social pages, newsletters, etc.
