Voting will closed at the end of today. The winner of the $1,000 cash prize will be announced by the end of this week!

Initially announced on the old S&A website, on March 4th... the Shadow And Act Dxebuts New Digital Filmmaker Showcase, an alliance with CEI Media Partners.

As a refresher... the gist of it... the Showcase is an online short film competition where viewers vote for their favorite films and the winning filmmakers receive cash prizes. Each of the 5 (1 every 2 months) qualifying round winner receives $1,000; final round grand prize winner receives an additional $4,000. Winners will be determined by the number of votes they receive in each round. Among non-winning entries, one film will be announced as the popular winner at the end of the season based on cumulative votes received and awarded $1,000. Crucial submission criteria: films had to feature a protagonist of African descent and themes reflective of the African Diaspora experience.
