In the more than 10 years since the Tribeca Film Festival was founded, the event has given emerging and established directors the chance to have their work showcased to the rest of the world. From the exposure we’ve seen, it looks like the festival’s mission of helping “filmmakers reach the broadest possible audience, enable the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema and promote New York City as a major filmmaking center” is being continuously upheld.
This year, the Tribeca Film Festival is reaching out even more and incorporating people’s love (and reliance) on technology. The festival is going to be held from April 17 to April 28, and the organizers have shown their interest – nay, excitement – for Vine. Remember the hullaballoo when Twitter acquired the video app? There were some glitches at the start, but it has since then gotten off the ground.
Now, even established names such as the Tribeca Film Festival has taken Vine into its fold. The festival organizers has launched what is called the #6SECFILMS Competition, powered by Vine.
If you use Vine, and you fancy yourself a filmaker, here is the perfect chance for you to show the world what you’ve got. In order to join the competition, you need to follow four simple steps.
- Make a Vine. If you’ve been using the app, you don’t need instructions for this. Just make sure your Vine is only 6 seconds. No more, no less.
- Tag your Vine. #6SECFILMS is the main tag that has to be included. For the other required tags, check out the call for submission rules.
- Post your Vine to Twitter. Of course.
- Follow @TribecaFilmFest on Twitter.
The required Vine may only be 6 seconds long, but if you really want to make it, then you have to get started now. The deadline for submission of entries is on April 7, 2013 at 11:59 PM. Winners will be announced on April 26.
This is your chance to create something worthwhile using all that technology available to you!
