The Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia (MPPIA) is pleased to announce the 2014/15 MPPIA Short Film Award, a partnership initiative of MPPIA, Creative BC and the Whistler Film Festival.
An industry-building initiative by MPPIA, Creative BC and the Whistler Film Festival Society, this award provides an emerging BC filmmaker with a cash award plus in-kind production services for a short film project.
Established in 2007, the MPPIA Short Film Award provides one filmmaker with the opportunity to further develop his/her directing career by realizing a unique creative vision in a short film project. Applicants will be short-listed into a field of candidates who will pitch their projects at the 2014 Whistler Film Festival taking place December 3 to December 7.
The successful candidate will receive a $15,000 cash award plus services 'in-kind' valued up to $100,000 from across the industry, enabling the filmmaker to complete his/her project with the guidance of experienced industry professionals and support services provided by the top supply houses in British Columbia. The completed film will have its world premiere screening at the 2015 Whistler Film Festival.
