The winning filmmaker will become a candidate for October Project of the Month. That winner will be in the running for Project of the Year.
The four projects up for this week’s Project of the Week are listed below, with descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers. You can vote at the bottom of the page.
Real Artists: In the near future, a young animator is offered what should be her dream job. But when she discovers the truth of the modern “creative” process, she must make a hard choice about her passion for film.
Cleaner Daze: Jasmine – a newbie drug rehab counselor – and her eccentric co-workers struggle to wrangle a misfit crew of teenage drug addicts.
The Big Bachi: A noir set in 1960s Los Angeles finds a Japanese American gardener must come face-to-face with the past he thought he had buried at war’s end.
Seeing is Believing: Women Direct: Women have been making films since the invention of the camera yet they continue to be the underdogs of fighting against systemic bias to get their work made. This five-hour serialized documentary reveals these artists in a way the public has never seen them before: as women, as artists, as as colleagues, and as leaders. You do have to “see it to believe it.”
Voting will end Monday, October 17 at 6 p.m. ET.
