BIGSTAR Online Film Festival $50,000 Cash Prize

Enter BIGSTAR's Online Film Festival. We are seeking great films that are 5 minutes or less. $50,000 Grand Prize. Festival deadline is December 31, 2010.

BIGSTAR.tv, a global online film networking community and digital distribution platform for independent cinema, will award a grand prize of $50,000 cash through their first film festival. The BIGSTAR Online Film Festival (BOFF) has opened its global competition to short films of any genre that are five minutes or less. BOFF will present the grand prize cash award to the best film of the festival, chosen by a jury of industry professionals and celebrities. BIGSTAR.tv will also present awards of merit for other outstanding submissions.

“BIGSTAR.tv was developed to showcase the work of independent filmmakers to mass audiences, assist them in developing future projects and gain recognition for their films. BOFF is one of the ways we intend to foster this commitment,” commented Xavi Dalmau, President and CEO of BIGSTAR.tv.

BIGSTAR.tv has aligned with Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) to assemble two panels of judges for the competition. FLIFF has brought together a jury of 20 industry professionals, including FLIFF President and CEO Gregory von Hausch and Senior Programmer Bonnie Leigh Adams for the preliminary screenings of all entries which will culminate with the selection of ten finalists.

A jury of celebrities comprised of Steve Guttenberg, Ian Ziering, Victor Nunez and others (to be announced), will screen the ten finalists and select the best film of the festival which will receive the $50,000 grand prize.

In addition to a monetary prize, BIGSTAR.tv will present awards of merit to films that stand out in the following categories: Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Animation, Best Foreign Film, Best Comedy, Best Documentary, Best Drama, Best Experimental Film, Best Original Song, Best Screenplay and Best Visually Artistic Film.

Festival screenings will coincide with the kick-off of BIGSTAR.tv’s subscription service which begins April 1, 2010. For $5.99, subscribers will receive unlimited streaming of BOFF film entries and can choose from over 1,000 titles available in the BIGSTAR.tv online movie store at www.bigstar.tv

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

    Emily
  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
