New showcase for Independent movie makers at IFC

The Independent Film Channel (IFC) is starting a new site in Jan for Independent movie makers. It's called the media lab.


Heres the link to find out more....
http://medialab.ifc.com/

Good luck with your submissions.

btw, do make sure to check out the terms and conditions page. Nothing weird, they just want to make sure you've dotted your i's and crossed your t's.

Edited title: changed "forum" to "showcase." It's not a forum (and the last thing the web needs is another film forum), but it is a site where you can upload and share your projects through their hosting service.

Looks cool. Too bad there's a six minute limit.

Yeah, that put me out of commission, too :-\

They are looking for new talent to develop.
Think of that 6 minutes as an online pitch session, without seeming like one.
Just how good a movie can you make in the alloted time frame.
What ever you do, don't make it look like a demo reel.

bah

speaking as a US citizen living outside the US, making it open only to "residents of the US" really is discouraging

I'm curious to know what people think of the shorts that IFC currently carries. It's been years since I've had that channel, but as I recall, their shorts segments were almost without exception, unbearably dull. I remember thinking, who picks these stinkers? Bad, bad, bad. Almost all of 'em. The only one I ever found engaging was "Barrier Control Device," and it was nothing fancy -- just a clever concept with an ironic and humorous ending. (Novel, huh?) Like I said though, I haven't had that channel for a few years. What's the current crop of shorts like? Have they improved? I wonder if maybe this showcase is an attempt to get away from the film school class projects that obviously made up their previous shorts packages. We all know how exciting those generally are.

I'm glad my last two films are around 3 minutes each. I emailed the group and they replied that I own the copyright. That's nice to know. Some of the earlier sites in the late 1990s would take the (c) away. That's why they aren't here anymore.

I just heard today that our film "Airbags" has been "approved".

If any of you happen to see it (once they open the competition) I'd love to hear what you think of it.

I'd try to explain it but since it's just under 3 minutes there isn't alot to say.

You can learn a little more on it's IMDB page: http://imdb.com/title/tt0486252/

And a bit more on our site: http://2soc.net/airbags/
