We have attended Napa VFF the last two years and really support the great work there of founders Brenda and Marc Lhormer.
The Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) has announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) will sponsor a new Animated Short Films category as part of this year’s Festival.
The new category will encourage animated short film submissions and allow the use of cloud technology through AWS to help bring the filmmakers’ vision to life.
Submitted animated short films must: be under 20 minutes in length; contain a significant amount of animation; utilize free trial credits provided by AWS for the purpose of accessing their products and services in order to complete the films; and be accepted through Without A Box (WAB) by June 30.
Completed films must be received by NVFF by July 31, 2013. Both Juried and Audience Award winners in the Animated Short Films category, sponsored by AWS, will be selected and announced at the NVFF Closing Night Awards Ceremony on Nov. 17.
The Jury Award winner will receive $10,000 in AWS credits. Details and requirements here.
The third annual Napa Valley Film Festival is Nov. 13 - 17, 2013.
