The Rhode Island International Film Festival is looking for independent filmmakers to compete in a new National Filmmaking Competition called the Seven Day PSA. This is a ‘feel good’ competition for non-union filmmakers who will have seven days to produce 20, 30 and 60 second public service announcements (PSA) for randomly selected non-profit organizations. This competition not only benefits the creative filmmakers who will receive a broadcast credit or even an Emmy if their PSA is chosen, but it helps these non-profit organizations raise awareness at a national level.
These organizations are struggling to get the resources to produce public service announcements and without these announcements it’s hard to raise money and public awareness. This competition is a win-win for all. If you think you have an idea for a PSA that will spark attention nationally in the New Year you have until January 10th to submit an application. Find your team of non-union actors, writers and filmmakers who want to compete for national exposure. As with many filmmaking competitions, there is a small standard fee of $120.00 for each team. This event is being hosted in Providence, RI and future events are currently being planned throughout New England. This is an opportunity to challenge yourself and build your resume in the New Year.
