ReelHeART “Off The Shelf” Competition

The ReelHeART “Off The Shelf” Category was introduced in 2008
for films of all genres that never saw the light of day, or never
reached an audience shortly after the film was completed. Your film has
to be more than 5 years old to be eligible-

Over the past 6 seasons, ReelHeART has been impressed with the number
of films we come across during our research that are quality films but
we’ve never heard of before. Art House films, documentaries,
experimental films and animation- We’ve seen a quite a few and liked
them.

Whether your film was created on a student/no/lo/moderate/or big
budget we’d like to see it. If your film passes our criterion for all of
our other categories, we’ll put it thought the same screening and
scoring process as our other submissions.

We know there are quite a few experimental films out there that their
loving filmmakers ‘tweaked for years’ only to be beat out by time,
technology or money to market and screen their film.

We also know there are genre specific “blaxplotation”, “avant-garde”,
“queer” “b-movie” and “underground” films that never got through the
doors of very many theaters if at all. We know there’s tons of
documentaries, quirky profiles, garage music videos, x-rated animation
and experimental mixed media out there. If your film is one of these, we
want to see it.

If your film is over 5 years old and you’d like to see how it matches
up to its contemporaries, we urge you to submit your film today. We’re
excited about this addition to ReelHeART. We hope you will be too!

  • Best “Off The Shelf” Prize
    Winner will receive a personalized Medallion or Trophy

This prize is NOT shared with other categories

ReelHeART ReelTube Film and Video Competition

In this time of Webisodes, Point n Post
and where anyone anywhere can upload, view and share user generated
videos, ReelHeART would we’d like to take it old school.

ReelHeART has decided to introduce web videos to its film festival
audience to see if filmgoers are willing to see something on the big
screen they can see anytime they want on the Internet.

The criterion for getting in this category is fairly simple. We ask
that you DO NOT SUBMIT ANY unauthorized clips from television shows,
films and music videos.

We also ask that you DO NOT SUBMIT videos containing pornography,
nudity, defamation, harassment, commercial advertisements and material
encouraging criminal conduct. Your video has to be all original with
only “fair use” of material (i.e. music, an image, a quote).

Your video has to have production values, i.e. Clear Video, Clean
Audio and a STORY. This category also includes cinéma vérité. Other than
that, absolutely anything goes!

The Top Winner will be awarded a “Best of Prize” honor and that my
friend, you can submit to other film festivals and eventually shop
around to Hollywood…

    Winner will receive a personalized Medallion or Trophy

Calling all Thesis Filmmakers! Ok, so
what have you done lately with that thesis film of yours?We don’t care
what year you graduated. We just care that your film has excellent
production values and a great story– for whatever year.

Spike Lee’s thesis film was called “Joe’s Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads“. Since then he’s made over 35 films. So, have you got a thesis film we should see before you make it big?

Where has it screened? If it hasn’t screened in Toronto, Canada, we may be interested in seeing it.

Your thesis film has to have production values, i.e. Clear Video,
Clean Audio and a STORY. This category also includes cinéma vérité.

that you DO NOT SUBMIT ANY unauthorized clips from television shows,
films, books, magazines and music videos.

We also ask that you DO NOT SUBMIT videos containing defamation,
harassment, commercial advertisements and material encouraging criminal
conduct.

Your thesis film has to be all original with only “fair use” of material (i.e. music, an image, a quote).

Narrative, Animation, Documentary, Experimental, Underground – This
category is wide open. Whatever you made as your thesis film, it’s
eligible in this category. Prizes in this category are 1st, 2nd and 3rd
Place as well as in competition for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best
Venue.

You’ll need to write a brief cover letter that gives us details about
you, your school program, the year you graduated (we don’t care even if
it was in the 40s), the mark you got (high or low doesn’t matter it’s
the content we’re interested in), and what you’ve done since making your
thesis film.
