Shadow and act

 

Saatchi & Saatchi is in it’s 4th year of sponsorship of the Run&Shoot Filmworks Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival.

 

The Saatchi & Saatchi NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE Producer’s Award is exclusively for films accepted into the 10th Annual Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival, which runs from August 7-11, 2012.

If you would like your film to be considered for this award you must include with your submission, the BIOGRAPHY of the film, which is:

 

  • A narrative of the genesis of the project, the time from its conception to completion and any significant landmarks or pitfalls along the way.
  • A narrative of the producer’s production strategy (i.e. initial budget, final budget, timeline, etc.).

 

Films of all genres are eligible and there’s no running time limit.

 

The Saatchi & Saatchi jury determines the finalists. There are typically 7 finalists in the Saatchi competition and 1 winner announced at the festival.

 

The past three winners, from the years 2009-2011 (in that chronological order), were Return To Mexico City 2009 by Joie Walls (Documentary), The Roe Effect by Kiel Adrian Scott (Short Film) and Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise and Fall of the Spook Who Sat By The Door by Christine Acham & Clifford Ward (Documentary).

 

Visit http://www.mvaaff.com to submit your film into the festival and then it is considered not only for the Saatchi & Saatchi NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE Producer’s Award, but also for the HBO Best Short, Best Doc and Best Feature competition.

 

Additionally, all finalists are invited to screen their films at Saatchi & Saatchi’s New York office.

 

Saatchi’s goal is to introduce Saatchi & Saatchi senior executives and creative directors to the film festival and most importantly to the participating filmmakers. As an evolution between the partnership of Saatchi and MVAAFF, Saatchi & Saatchi in 2011 designated past NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE film finalist Bree Newsome (Wake) as Saatchi & Saatchi’s first ever Artist in Residence.

 

Bree Newsome is currently at Saatchi & Saatchi NY collaborating with their creative teams on a number of projects. It’s an excellent competition and a great way to get your talent seen before advertising’s decision makers.

 

Once again, go to http://www.mvaaff.com to submit your film.
