Get your video camera out, get shooting, and your film might just be featured in next year’s Fernie Mountain Film Festival.

The Fernie Mountain Film Festival team is now fast into planning mode for their annual 2012 February Festival. Always looking for new ways to improve and build on each year’s festival, this year they are getting things going with a new local’s short-film comp, excited to see some inspiring shorts to showcase the amazing talent and outstanding terrain in Fernie.

It’s a social media short-film comp, primarily promoted and run via the FMFF’s Facebook page, which for three lucky winners will result in them taking home a GoPro HD Camera to help their winter filming season and bring something awesome to the Thursday Local’s Film Night. Local’s Film Night kicks off the main weekend festival with a bang and last year was a huge hit. With improvements afoot and this online pre-festival short-film comp, this year will be even better, with cash prizes to first, second and third.

Whilst the main Festival’s mandate “The Fernie Mountain Film Festival is dedicated to filmmakers who spark awareness of mountain cultures, fragile environments, and the passion and perseverance of global explorers,” ensures a diverse selection of film submissions, the criteria for this short-film comp is split simply into three categories – Biking, Skiing or Mountain Adventure. Choose your weapon.

Enter via the FMFF Facebook page.

 

The competition is now open and closes on November 30, with winners announced on December 15.
