Traverse City Events: Traverse City Film Festival Bumper Contest

Traverse City Events: Here’s your chance to showcase film-making talent, win a  cash prize and participate in the Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF).

This year, the Traverse City Film Festival would like aspiring filmmakers to display their talent by submitting parodies of Traverse City and its annual film festival on celluloid or its digital equivalent. Accept the challenge and your cinematic creativity could land you a hefty cash prize. Winners will receive prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 (with runner-up awards of $100), not to mention the invaluable exposure of having winning films presented before feature films at this year’s Traverse City Film Festival from July 26-31.

So, show us what you’ve got and submit your most entertaining short-film by Friday, July 8. Winners will be announced Monday, July 18.

TCFF is looking forward to another great crop of submissions like those from last year’s winners: Joe Carter, Gym Hinderer, Ian Prokes, John Paul Morris and Scott McCambridge, who’s winning videos van be viewed on the TCFF website
