Call for Film Festival entries; early deadline ends Monday
A variety of cash prizes are awarded to the top films through generous sponsorships. The Festival’s signature Kinght Competition is open to dramatic works from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal, as well as Latino-themed works produced in the United States. Ten films will compete for $40,000 in prizes courtesy of the Knight Foundation, which includes $15,000 in incentives for a US distributor to acquire the Grand Prize winner (view MIFF 2014 winner, A Wolf at the Door, coverage in Variety.)
Also, courtesy of the Knight Foundation, feature-length documentaries made by international filmmakers that examine social issues, diverse cultures, icons, or inspiring people will compete for a $10,000 cash prize, which will be an audience-voted award for the first time at MIFF 2015, rather than selected by a jury.
There are other catgories, too. MIFF offers filmmakers an exceptional platform for exposure during the Festival and beyond. Worldwide media impressions and press coverage was recorded at over four billion tracked impressions in the three months surrounding MIFF 2014. Regarded as an important destination for distributors in the hunt for acquisitions, a number of MIFF alumni have brokered deals during or after the festival. MIFF additionally offers a world-class experience for visiting filmmakers in the internationally renowned hub of beautiful South Beach.
