A reel challenge

The Victoria-based CineVic Society of Independent Filmmakers is seeking submissions

The Victoria-based CineVic Society of Independent Filmmakers is seeking submissions from local musicians and filmmakers to participate in its annual Reel-to-Reel Challenge.

Now in its seventh year, the event pairs up filmmakers with local musicians. Reel-to-Reel’s goal is the production of short musical films built around selected artists’ songs, culminating in a screening night where awards will be handed out to the best work.

CineVic welcomes submissions from musical artists working in any genre. The only rule for filmmakers is that the entire song must appear uncut in the final product. Filmmakers are free to create all narrative using the music as soundtrack, experimental work, or a straight-forward music video.

This year’s screening will be held Sept. 6 at the Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad St.

Applications must be submitted to the CineVic office by July 31. For more details and application forms go to cinevic.ca.
