Act Fast & Win a Trip to Cannes
The Cannes Film Festival which opens tomorrow turns 60 this year. As part of the Cannes festivities, Adobe is sponsoring the Reel Ideas Studio where virtual teams of documentary filmmakers are competing to create films that will be screened during the Cannes Festival on May 24th in the American Pavilion.
Members of the winning team will receive roundtrip airfare, accommodations, and tickets to the 2008 Cannes Festival; plus copies of Production Premium.
Sounds great, right? Absolutely, but you gotta act fast if you want to get in on the action. The competition started May 1st and all entrants must be fully registered by May 16th (yikes). All submissions must be uploaded by May 23rd (talk about a fast turnaround production timeline). Check out the web site for complete rules.
Even if you decide not to participate you can track the teams and watch the projects evolve over the next week on the site, or follow the "At The Theater" link and watch last years winning projects.
Update: Just learned that registration has been extended until May 18th.
