Griz Vs. Cat Filmmaker Competition

OK, officially it’s called the “Cat Vs. Griz Montana Student Filmmaker Competition”, but we think “Griz Vs. Cat” sounds a ton better.

UM students, this is your chance to win $1,500! That’s a lot of books! (And by books, we mean beer.) Affiliated schools qualify as well, let’s do this!

Submissions are open now through June 2, the competition is June 16 to June 30. We’ve got some incredibly creative filmmakers in this town, we don’t see you losing this competition.

Full details:

The Audience Awards, a start up online social networking service for filmmakers and enthusiasts, is now accepting submissions for the
upcoming film Cat vs. Griz MT Student filmmaker competition.
Sponsored By Blackstone LaunchPad and Montana Film Office, The Audience Awards is
an online platform created to connect filmmakers with audiences. Located in Montana’s
incubator, Montec, The Audience Awards has completed a first round of investment and
features regularly occurring film competitions where the film with the most votes wins.

The cost of entry is $5.00 for current enrolled students of Montana State University,
University of Montana, and all other affiliate campuses. Student filmmakers can submit
their short films for a chance to win $1500. Blackstone LaunchPad will give $1000 to
the film with the most votes at the end of the competition and The Montana Film Office
will give $250 to the Griz student with the most votes and $250 to the Cat film with the
most votes. Films in any genre that are fifteen minutes or under made by a Montana State
or U Montana student are accepted.

Submitting their films at will give college students the needed
exposure to get a jump-start on their filmmaking career. Students create a profile and get
featured as a filmmaker and can raise money for anything film related.
When the competition launches June 16 on The Audience Awards site, it is free for the
audience to sign up, watch, and vote for their favorite student made film. The audience is
allowed to vote once a day for their favorite films.
