The Monthly Short Film Showcase
The AGRtist Monthly Short Film Showcase is an exciting program open to any member of our community who would like to produce in a challenge format or have created a short film and are looking for a great environment to privately screen to their peers. The program is available to members of our private Facebook group, The Green Lounge and members of ELEVATE.
How does it work?
Each month, FIVE producer slots will be available for AGRtists to create or finish up a film within that month. These five slots are free on a first come first serve basis. In conjunction with these five, films from the Immersion Program will also have the opportunity to be showcased. For those producers who would like to follow a challenge format, we will provide suggested dates for pre-production, production, and post production. However, we are not in any way responsible for funding the production or the casting of any films.
Dates for May are:
Pre-Production: May 1st-May 8th
Production: May 9th- May 15th
Post Production: May 16th- May 24th
All films due by 12pm noon Friday, May 24th as a downloadable Vimeo link.
Screening will be Monday May 27th at John Sullivan’s at 7pm (210 W 35th street)
Each short film must not exceed 20 minutes in length at time of submission. Any films
over 20 minutes will NOT BE SCREENED.
Who gets to see my Film?
Our monthly screenings are open to the friends and family of each film maker as well as our extensive AGR community. Tickets for the AGRtist Monthly Short Film Screening Series will be available for purchase online through noon on the day of the screening. Admission includes ONE FREE DRINK and goes to John Sullivan's for space rental and staffing.
Advance ticket sales will be open through the Friday before the screening for $10. After that they will be $15 online or CASH ONLY at the door
What are the Benefits of Screening With AGR?
The monthly films will be automatically placed into peer voting consideration at the screening. Each ticket to the monthly screening includes a ballot for everyone who attends the start of the first film and who stay the entire duration of the screening. The top films from each month move on to a panel of Casting Directors who will have the opportunity to see your work as they make their selections for our quarterly "BEST OF" screening.
The "BEST OF" films will be screened in front of prominent industry professionals. This is also a great evening to network and celebrate the accomplishments of these projects.
