Homemade Documentarians Take Note!


The Columbus International Film + Video Festival is pleased to announce a new Division geared towards short form experimental and documentary works.

The Basement Division:

[special reduced entry fee & Entry deadline]

Basement films division seeks videos made inexpensively by people interested in documenting the world and people around them. These works can be of any topic, no matter how local or modest. Basement videos are works of authenticity and immediacy and are to have no distribution deals. These works should have a run time under 10 minutes.

While we seek videos made by non-professionals and meant mostly for the people around them, works of vision and quality will be rewarded.

A special reduced entry fee of only $20 will apply only for this division. While there is no Chris Award for this division we are awarding software prizes from Showbiz Software for the top winners in this division.

Entry deadline has been extended without penalty to July 15, 2009.
