Reel Teal Film Festival

Reel Teal Film Festival

 

Type: Dedicated shortfilm festival
Location: Wilmington,
Start Month: February


Description

Reel Teal Film Festival is a solely student-organized film festival presented by members of the Flicker Film Society at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. With emphasis on the award show atmosphere, this festival programs innovative films from film makers, students, and enthusiasts, to promote a community that fosters competition and cinematic diversity. Complete with a teal carpet, photographers, and Q&A with filmmakers, Reel Teal encompasses all your film festival and award show needs.

Every year we bring the best local productions alongside the best international selections to offer a low-key night of short films. Because of Wilmington’s many productions we create an environment that is equally satisfying to the big production filmmaker as it is to the everyman college student.


Submission Requirements:

You may submit a maximum of 3 films to the festival, so as to make it fair for other filmmakers! In the case that someone does submit more than 3 films, we will disqualify them from the festival and they will not be allowed to submit anymore films without disqualification.

If using a media file format- you may burn to a data CD. Do not send hard-drives, Flash Drives, SD cards, etc. If you do they will not be returned. You can use a file sharing website, such as Dropbox, to send us your desired format and quality for exhibition. Along with whatever format you choose to submit for exhibition, an additional copy formatted in H.264 Quicktime and burned on a data CD can also be sent as back-up. This is to streamline the judging process. It is also kept on hand in case of extreme technical difficulties during exhibition that causes your preferred selected format to be unusable- our projectionists are top notch and our equipment is up-to-date, so this circumstance is largely hypothetical. Only under these conditions will the Quicktime version will be played (unless you just want us to).

Submission Deadline: November

We will award one $150 Grand Prize and one $50 Audience Choice Prizes during the festival in the form of either cash or check. All winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at the end of the night.
