At a swanky party on the 42nd floor of the Ritz Carlton Hotel (where high-profile guests were offered up flutes of bubbly and a spiffy journal keepsake to take home) Officials with Los Angeles Film Festival announced an exciting film competition which triggered a lot of buzz.
“Focus Forward” is awarding $200,000 in cash prizes for the top five “3 minute Films” entered in the “Filmmaker Challenge”.
$100,000 of that prize money will be awarded to the Grand Prize Winner.
Submissions are due by August 23rd (2012), by the way.
So, interested filmmakers should surf on over to their site for all the rules & regulations.
By the way, the luxury suite at the Ritz was the perfect place to host such a dazzling event.
For example, well-heeled guests were treated to spectacular views of the city skyline, as they mixed-and-mingled with movers & shakers of the film industry.
In the high-tech kitchen, they were also keen on observing the Chef whip up the delectable finger food they later wolfed down with delicious abandon.
The upbeat par-tay was so packed that it was difficult to make one’s way across a brief stretch of the finely-appointed suite.
I captured quite a few video clips which will be posted on my YouTube channel later today or tomorrow when time permits.
Check it out, eh?
See ‘ya at the festival.
