Live. Work. Play. Film Competition

Want over 100,000 views on YouTube? Win a film competition!

The Anchorage Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) is hosting its second ‘Live. Work. Play.’ Film competition.  I interviewed Emily Bolling, Communications Director for AEDC to get a few more details than were available online. 

The first film competition, back in January 2012, had a respectable 4 entries.  The winner, “Stuff Anchorageites Never Say,” by Brian Dollerhide, has 109,000 views on YouTube.

The AEDC is hoping for quite a few more entries for the current competition.  Filmmakers have until July 13th at 5pm to get their entries to AEDC. 

All short (3-5 minute) film styles are acceptable; the theme is “The Never Ending Day.” AEDC wanted to give filmmakers “a bit of structure with room for creativity.”

The winning film will be shown to over 1,000 business professionals at the AEDC Economic Outlook Luncheon in July and the creator will receive a prize package.  The package includes tickets to the luncheon and sponsored items such as gift cards to local businesses. 

There will be a public screening of the submitted films on July 20th, 6:30pm at Out North Theatre.  Please come out and show your support for your local filmmakers!
