The 6th Mindanao Film Fest is now calling for entries. The 6th Mindanao Film Fest is presented by the Mindanao Film and Television Development Foundation, Inc., the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Southspot Entertainment, and the Mebuyan Peace Project, Inc.

Mindanaoan filmmakers and filmmakers with films about Mindanao are invited to submit their entries for exhibition films. Students are also invited to submit their short films and documentaries. And Guerilla Filmmakers have a category, as well.

Exhibition Films and Student Films

Students may participate by submitting their films in the Student Short Film Category (High School & College) or the Student Documentary Category.

All genres are welcome including comedy, drama, experimental, and animation, as long as the film has been completed anytime within October 2009 to September 2010, and has not been screened in the previous Mindanao Film Festival.

Those interested must submit the following:

  1. Completed entry form
  2. DVD screener copy of entry film

Guerilla Filmmaking Competition

The Guerrilla Filmmaking Competition is an open-theme and open-genre competition where participating filmmakers “race” to produce their 5-15 minute narrative short films during the same time period and are given a strict deadline. Emphasizing the essence of guerrilla-filmmaking, this category of the Mindanao Film Festival has a special award given to the film with the best production value (highest quality for the lowest budget) – the Red Fist Award.

Those interested to compete in the Guerrilla Filmmaking Competition must submit the following:

  1. Completed entry form
  2. Synopsis of the 5 to 15-minute short film they intend to produce for the competition
  3. Samples of film/video works

Deadline for submissions for all categories is September 25, 2010.

The 6th Mindanao Film Fest is brought to you by the Alchemy of Vision and Light, Southspot Entertainment, and the NCCA.

All requirements must be sent to:
