Be Film Festival Welcomes HFR 3D Shorts
The 10th Annual Be Film The Underground Film Festival will be held on April 23-25, 2013 in New-York, USA.
Recognized by MovieMaker Magazine as one of "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" and praised for its "focus on forward-thinking artists," BE FILM has presented more than 1,000 short films from more than 30 countries across the globe and regularly takes full advantage of some of the best screening and social venues in New York City. This year, the 3D category now accepts 48 fps and 60 fps productions (30 minutes long max).
Be Film Mission and Objective
Be Film The Underground Film Festival - BTUFF is a New York City forum for independent filmmakers, worldwide, and celebrates the best short-form, cinematic expressions to hit the screens.
About the Festival
Dedicated to championing great films for worldwide distribution, BE FILM is proud to screen its selected shorts in some of the best venues available today, including the Disney Park Avenue Screening Room, the Dolby Screening Room, and the Crosby Screening Room.
BE FILM welcomes terrific short-form works across all genres and creative forms, and it is proud to have been the first shorts festival in the world to introduce a "Stereoscopic 3D" category for filmmakers eager to stretch their craft into entirely new dimensions. Several of the festival's official selections have gone on to the highest levels of industry success and have nabbed Academy Awards, BAFTA awards, and Moliere Awards, as well as numerous additional honors.
Just ask writer-director Ari Sandel, whose short musical comedy West Bank Story stole hearts at Be Film and then took home the gold on Oscar night!
Prizes up to 5,000$
BE FILM winners take home prizes-ranging in value from $500 to $5000 USD-from a slew of generous sponsors. Energized opening and closing night parties book-end the festival and re-enforce BE FILM's commitment to community, artistry, and the development of invaluable networking opportunities and relationships.
Registration details are on the BeFilm web site and are handled by Withoutabox. Pre-submissions are accepted on DVD, but 3D movies have to be provided as side-by-side HD files (prefered) or as blu-ray 3D. Projection at the festival will be from 3D DCP packages. Be Film was one of the first festivals in the world five years ago to support 3D DCP submissions.
