MTV Look Different Creator Competition

View More >

MTV and Look Different are looking for emerging filmmakers to create a groundbreaking video project for the campaign that would bring a creative new outlook to the subject of privilege as it relates to the filmmaker in today’s world. Possible subjects could include racial, gender and sexual orientation privilege, among others. We'll choose three projects to produce and potentially distribute on MTV's vast digital and cross-platform channels, including a nationally televised spot on mtvU, MTV’s college network. Winning proposals will be selected by MTV and a panel of notable judges, based on the creative merits of the proposal, the originality of the project, the project’s ability to provoke conversation, and the feasibility of the budget ($10-20K). You must submit your entry on the site by September 18.

Sound Unseen call for entries

View More >

The 16th annual Sound Unseen music film festival will take place Wednesday, November 11 through Sunday, November 15, 2015 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN and is now accepting submissions exclusively through Film Freeway

In the fall of 1999, Sound Unseen introduced itself as a unique, cutting edge “films-on-music” festival in Minneapolis and St. Paul of the Twin Cities and has established itself as one of the premiere niche festivals in the country, but more importantly as an important and vital part of the regional cultural scene. Now in its 15th year, the festival has expanded to include year-round programming, Pop-Up Cinefeasts, and special presentations including world and regional premiere screenings including "Sigur Ros' INNA," "Anvil! The Story of Anvil!" "Filmage: The Story of Descendents/ALL," "Mistaken For Strangers," "Death to Prom," "Color Me Obsessed," "Beware of Mr. Baker," "The Punk Singer," “Heaven Adores You,” “The Legends of Ska” and "The Rise & Fall of the Clash." 

Documentaries, rare concert footage, short films, animation, music videos, special performances, gallery exhibitions and dozens of live music events highlighting both local and national acts separate this festival from the usual outdoor mega concerts, film festivals and tours. What began as an underground film festival with only a handful of attendees, Sound Unseen is now a well respected and known brand that has a loyal following and continues to program exciting, unexpected, and a consistent array of music, film, fashion, new media and art.

With over 35 entries submitted to date, filmmakers can submit their film(s) covering seven categories; Narrative Feature, Documentary Feature, Short Narrative Feature, Short Documentary Feature, Music Video, Student Made Film, and Minnesota Made, Sound Unseen expects more submissions than last year’s record breaking number of 103 submissions. 

Sound Unseen has received press coverage in all major local media including The Star Tribune, Pioneer Press, City Pages, Vita.mn, Secrets of the City, Walker Art blog, TC Daily Planet, The Onion Twin Cities, Northland News, Growler Magazine, PopCulture Beast, AMFM Magazine, MinnPost; local radio stations The Current, Drive 105, KQRS, MPR, Radio K and television news including NBC, FOX and CBS. National media mentions have included Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, USA Today, Music Film Web blog, The Playlist, and AIF Independent magazine of New York.

Rules & Terms are listed on Film Freeway page. Submitted films must be Minnesota, Midwest, U.S. North American and/or World premieres to screen at Sound Unseen. For submitted films to be considered and eligible to into “competition” they must fall into one of these categories.
