IFF Machinima Competition 2010
I am one of the two programming directors for this year’s Ivy Film Festival, a student run student film festival (now in its 9th year) held on the campus of Brown University every April. This year marks the 3rd annual Ivy Film Festival Student Machinima Competition @ Machinima.com, one of the few machinima competitions that caters exclusively to students. The site has recently gone live and is open for submissions. Machinima.com is offering two fantastic prizes—$250 Audience Choice Award and $500 Jury Prize. The submission deadline is March 21st so submit your work ASAP!
The competition is accepting machinima from any year, as long as it was made while the machinimator was a high school, college, or graduate student. Audience voting will whittle down the entries into a top ten. A second round of voting will determine the winner of the Audience Choice Award and a jury of machinima and media specialists will decide the winner of the Jury Prize. Both winners will be screened at the Ivy Film Festival in April.
This is a very exciting opportunity for student machinimators and I’m looking forward to seeing the submissions!
