The MiX competition rewards current projects and brings talented writers and filmmakers together to collaborate on the production of future high quality projects. We are also one of the few that provides potential production opportunities for our top winners. All entrants receive the judging scorecard and a few paragraphs of notes, included in the price of the entry.
The MiX accepts short film scripts and produced shorts of all genres and niches. Additionally, we place a special emphasis on pairing up talent that might not otherwise have access to one another, as well as highlight other unique categories that focus on using film as a powerful medium for social change.
We also feature a bonus corporate short film category, which is FREE for all writers and directors if they have entered at least one other project into a main category by the corporate contest deadline. These writers and directors will have only two weeks to complete a script and/or director's vision & storyboard for our corporate sponsor. One winning writer and director will be awarded a cash prize and get co-credit for their work. See the rules and guidelines for further details.
The MiX will be a catalyst for producing a new wave of forward thinking projects for 2012 that help transcend traditional creative norms, so we look forward to working with each of you in our inaugural year.
