About the 21-Day Filmmaking Competition n The 21-Day Filmmaking Competition gives artists the motivation to produce original work with a strict deadline and friendly competition, resources to build a team of volunteers, and exposure through theatrical screenings and unconventional distribution routes.

21

 Filmmaking Competition

The Competition begins with the Launch Event, where Teams gather in nervous anticipation of learning the secret “Element” all films must include, and to meet community volunteers for their productions. Hundreds of filmmakers, talent, writers, artists, and enthusiasts flocked to this event to show their support. Our 2009 event was simulcast live online to viewers as far as Greece, Hawaii, Michigan, and the UK. During the 21-Days of production, many Teams post updates online so the community can watch them create their films in real-time and offer additional support as needed. The experience is best described as “Reality TV, without the remote.” At the Drop Event, Team leaders rush to get their movies in on time, and share tales of their adventures to our cameras. Completed films are guaranteed a World Premiere screening at the P21Fest, and are eligible for Awards and Prizes in a dozen categories. Industry judges and audiences select the top films, which receive a commercial release on DVD, digital distribution, and free entry into our Film Library to receive additional screenings, exposure, and potential prizes. *Films with an asterisk were not completed by the 21-Day deadline, so they are ineligible for Judged Awards. Since they’re still excellent films, they still qualify for the “Audience Award,” as well as the “Best Marketing” category, since the marketing materials, trailers & guerrilla marketing tactics occur after the 21-Day Competition.

Please Help!

Remember, Project Twenty1 is a volunteer-run organization. We have no government funding or grants, so we need Members and Supporters like YOU to help keep this dream alive! Ticket sales account for less than 7% of the production costs of running our quality programs. That’s not a typo - and that number doesn’t even account for the cost of an office, electricity, modest meals, mileage reimbursements, equipment, and manpower we need to operate year-round programming on our artists’ behalves. Ever wonder why a 25 cent tub of popcorn costs $8 at movie theaters? Because the arts & film business is expensive...especially for the folks that “put on the show”. And since arts funding in the State of Pennsylvania looks bleak, we will be unable to provide the same amount of programming and level of service in 2010 without your
