Golden Delta Film Festival

Posted by deltanz on 18 September 2016 in English (English)

Hello, folks! I've been thinking about more cultural activities for our countries to be involved into, so I decided to create a film festival that will be hosted by Neo Delta, in the city of Ezajun, the capital of cinema in Neo Delta.

Each and every country is invited to submit up to 3 films of any type of genre. Submissions should be made by commenting is the comment section of this post and they will be taken into the future wiki page of the festival. The categories will include Best Film, Best Main Actress, Best Main Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction, Best Music, Best Animated Movie and Best Documentary.

The requirements are simple. Each submission should provide at least the name of the film and the genre (besides the country of origen). Of course other sort of information is welcome, and it will increase the chances that the film wins some of the categories.

The following are two examples with the minimum amount of information, and with the suggested information:

MINIMUM:

  1. FILM: The Mountain of The Butterfly

  2. GENRE: Drama

  3. COUNTRY: Neo Delta

OPTIONAL:

  1. FILM: Fire in the Woods

  2. GENRE: Adventure

  3. MAIN ACTOR: Mart Juteg-Lipe

  4. MAIN ACTRESS: Sanna Huje-Bulao

  5. SUPPORTING ACTOR: Sentin Karo-Gert

  6. MUSIC: The Windows Never Close

  7. DIRECTOR: Same Orahe-Tert

  8. SYNOPSIS: A group of friends is lost is a jungle when they find ancient secrets that take them to a world of incredible adventures

  9. COUNTRY: Neo Delta

I would personally encourage synopsis, so that we'd know more about your film! So, this is it, let me know what you think! Suggestions are more than welcome!

Location: Servip, Ezajun, Nospring, Ezza Ojonan, Neo Delta

@Leowezy Of course films in different languages are accepted, haha!

Hey, guys, thank you for your submissions, I'm creating a wiki page with the nominations right now (http://opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/2016_Golden_Delta_Film_Festival)! I'm really impressed with the great and original stories you suggested for your films! :D

So, for the nominations, genres like dramas and comedies will usually be nominated for acting and screenplay awards. Other films, like adventure, action, horror and sci-fi will usually be more lucky with technical awards, such as editing, visual effects, etc.

Good luck to you all! :)

P.S. Great idea, Diogo! It's great to get some more cultural global initiatives like this. And it brings out the imp in me ;-)

P.S.S. the Wiwaxian entry may be science fiction, but it's also a comedy-drama.
