Film commission accepts entries to short film competition
The search is on for the Quezon City Film Development Commission’s (QCFDC) new batch of entries for its short film screenplay contest.
Quezon City Experience (QCX) is the official short film category of the Quezon City International Film Festival (QCinema), which is now on its fifth year.
In the competition, eight short film directors will receive a production grant worth P100,000 with ownership of film rights.
To join, filmmakers should submit a completed QCX entry form, synopsis, director’s statement and screenplay, director’s profile, and a portfolio of sample works in DVD format.
Proposed entries must be in the form of narrative fiction. The total running time of completed film output with opening and closing credits must not exceed 20 minutes.
Original literary sources, music materials, and film footages must have proper clearance from respective copyright owners before they can be used in any part of the movie.
The film must have its Philippine premiere at QCinema 2017. The rights for the final product belong to the filmmaker. Nonetheless, QCFDC, as the executive producer, reserves the right to screen it for the whole duration of QCinema 2017 and in other selected events after the festival screenings.
Entries must be submitted to the QCinema Secretariat at the following address: Unit 207, PM Apartments, #24 Matalino St., Barangay Central, Quezon City 1100.
