Young Directors Night at LACMA

YOUNG DIRECTORS NIGHT at LACMA ---- Young Directors Night is an event to highlight the emerging talent of Los Angeles’ film community. A celebration of film and the art of cinema, the showcase features 8 to 10 short films screened in the unique setting of an art museum. The event is not only designed for film exhibition, but also is meant to create an educational experience highlighting the intricacies and complexities of the film-making process. A host panel of industry luminaries is assembled to engage the directors after the screenings in a discussion on what goes into making the films. The exhibition doubles as a competition with the host panel along with the audience voting on best in show. The winner, announced at a reception following the screening, takes home the Art of Film Award and is sent to a prominent film festival to gain further knowledge about their medium. Submitting to Young Directors Night is absolutely free. Be sure to include your contact information and send films 30 minutes in length or shorter to: Los Angeles County Museum of Art Attn: Muse Submissions/YDN 5905 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036 --- *Deadline for Young Directors Night 2010 consideration is January 15, 2010.
