Heading into the summer, and with much of California facing severe to moderate drought, now is the time to think about how we can all better manage and conserve water.
FilmL.A. has teamed up with Azusa, California-based Rainbird Corporation to recruit filmmakers with a passion for water conservation. Rainbird’s Intelligent Use of Water Film Competition, now in its third year, is open to all amateur and experienced filmmakers interested in showcasing their creative talents while competing for a share of $15,000 in cash prizes.
The Competition will accept all narrative, documentary, animated, experimental and/or student-made short films (10 minutes running length or less) that creatively and provocatively showcase the need for responsible water use.
Participating filmmakers will have their films reviewed by a judging panel made up of film and water management experts. Finalists will win a trip to Los Angeles, California where they will be guests at a formal September 23, 2009 screening and awards show hosted at The Getty Center.
The deadline for entries is 11:59 PM (PDT) on August 15, 2009. Additional competition rules and guidelines for entry can be found through the competition’s website at www.iuowfilm.com.
