Film Streams – Intern Job Description – Fall 2015

Now accepting submissions for Film Streams 2015 Local Filmmaker Showcase!

Film Streams, Omaha’s nonprofit cinema, is now accepting submissions for our sixth annual Local Filmmakers Showcase—a curated program featuring work by area artists.

Filmmakers are invited to submit their work for consideration electronically or by mail. Send a DVD along with the attached submission form (also available for download at http://j.mp/1OKJLgH) to: Film Streams, Attn: Brooke Masek, P.O. Box 8485, Omaha, NE 68108. Please note that materials, including DVDs, will not be returned to you. Or, send a link to your film and the completed submission form to brooke@filmstreams.org. There is no fee for entry.

To be eligible, the director of the film must be a resident of Nebraska, Iowa, or South Dakota. Students who are either residents of, or are attending schools full-time in, one of those three states are welcome to submit. The idea is to provide a theatrical premiere for local filmmakers, so work that has screened publicly for a paying audience (outside of film festivals) will not be considered for this program.

Films must be completed at the time of submission and received by Film Streams no later than July 23, 2015. A maximum of three submissions are allowed per filmmaker. It is the filmmakers’ responsibility to gain permissions for music prior to submission. We will not consider any film that violates another artist’s intellectual property.

Filmmakers whose films are selected for the showcase (as well as their families and friends) will be invited to an opening night celebration and screening on Thursday, October 8. All filmmakers chosen will also receive a percentage of the box office for the week-long run at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, plus an honorarium. New in 2015, the Local Filmmaker Showcase program will tour the region, with potential stops at cinemas in Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota.

This year’s exciting jury will be announced soon. Past juries have included Saddle Creek Records artists The Faint, the staff of Omaha’s Jackson Street Booksellers, and staff writers from the Omaha World-Herald. Films of all types and running times will be considered for the program, which will be approximately 90 to 150 minutes in length in its entirety. Aside from time constraints, the program’s format will be determined by the quality and diversity of films under consideration.

For press inquiries, contact Patrick Kinney at patrick@filmstreams.org.
