Here we go with DVC 19! If you haven't read the rules yet, or lately, be sure and do that. The DV Challenge: * Official Rules (http://thedvchallenge.blogspot.com/search/label/*%20Official%20Rules) If you have questions, be sure and ask!
Guy Cochran of www.dvestore always comes up with the coolest prizes. This time he's offered so much stuff we're splitting it up, so we've decided on this for the winners:
Best Film: Diva Ring Light with Stand
Best Script: DV Enlightenment DVD and a Photoflex 42” 5n1 Reflector
Best Actor: a pair of Sony 7506 headphones
Great gear! Thanks so much, Guy!
Okay, all for now because we know you're dying to get started on your film.
The theme is: MASKS.
That's it! Get going and good luck!!
EDIT: Rule change: Maximum length 4 minutes plus 15-20 seconds for credits. See below for details.

Ha ha ha. Very funny. I just finished a film this summer for the Sacramento Horror Film Festival called, "Mask of Evil". See poster in photo attached.

Wow! That's the poster that came up as a thumbnail on Facebook when I posted the theme there! Nice work!!

Veterans of DVCs have been spoiled by us stretching the time limit from the 3 minutes that the rules state. I wanted to return to the original rule, but just asked Dylan before he blew off the radar for awhile. He says let's split the difference.
So...you have FOUR (4) minutes to tell your story. If you need to go over that by 15-20 seconds to fit in your credits, that's okay, but anything over that is DQ, baby! :)

Mine will have to be a 12h film project due to my overloaded schedule, but the theme is generous, so I'll have to come up with something.

How broadly can we interpret the theme? Do we have to base the short around something to do with a literal physical mask, or could it be people pretending to be something they're not?

That's the beauty of the DV Challenge, Henry. Interpretation is wide open. :)

Thanks very much for the clarification Lorinda. I'll get writing!

Just finished writing my script... now all I need are some masks! :)

It's gonna take all my will power to not just create a complete rip-off of "Eyes Wide Shut" on this one.

Speaking of Masks.
Here's the final scenes of an old The Twilight Zone show:

My camera has decided to stop working on me this week. Unfortunately, I won't be able to submit a project for this challenge :(. More motivation to pick up a 7d!
