Dear Esteemed Film and Video Artists!
Below is a description of a new project this year for the Olympia Film Festival. We are enlisting Film & Video Artists in the creation of a short Video in, around, and about our Sponsor's location to air before their featured film at the 27th Annual Olympia Film Fest! Earn credit towards a Full Pass. This year is NOT TO BE MISSED! Interested? Read on.
RE: The Sponsorship Video Project
Thank you so much for volunteering your time and talents in spearheading a new project for this year’s 27th Annual Olympia Film Festival!
We’re really excited about the Sponsorship Video Project, and your participation in it, and would like to make this process as smooth as we can for all involved. Sarah and I will be acting as executive producers. We will be reviewing scripts and checking in with the filmmakers throughout the production schedule. We are available to assist you in meeting realistic production goals by aiding with access to equipment (production and post-prod), sets and props, offering motivation, and lending other assistance you may need towards the completion of your video.
Here are some guidelines and some technical information to keep in mind throughout production:
Please send us a copy of your script so we have an idea of what your video is going to look like and what it will take to get it done. If your script calls for an orca to stroll down 5th Avenue, we’re here to help you brainstorm ways to make this happen, without a live killer whale…
Minimum 30 seconds to 2 minutes maximum.
All the movies, whether 16,9 or 4,3, will happen in a 4,3 aspect ratio...
that means if it's 16,9 it will be letter-boxed, and 4,3 will fill the screen.
Because the film submission deadline for the 27th anual Olympia Film
Festival has been extended (see details below) so has your opportunity
to help program the festival...we have added two additional
programming meetings in September!
Programming Volunteer Meetings are at 5:00pm at 416 Washington Street
SE #208 on the following dates:
To All Filmmakers:
Submit your feature, short, or whatever it may be to one of the
coolest alternative film festivals on the west coast. To submit your
work please go to our website, www.olympiafilmfestival.org and fill
out the submission form (please note that there is a fee for
submitting a film: $20/feature - $15/short). Or, if you have any

Early submission deadline is August 25th, 2010. Final deadline is
September 17th, 2010. So get those entries in and take that step
toward fame and fortune! Who knows, you could be the next Federico
Fellini… or Ed Wood. The only way to find out is to submit your work!

IF YOU WANNA SUBMIT YOUR MOVIE TO SHOW AT THE FESTIVAL, HERE'S HOW:
THE 26TH OLYMPIA FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS NEW, INDEPENDENT, RARE, INTERNATIONAL, AND FANTASTIC FILMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!
OCTOBER 21st, 2009 – OLYMPIA, WA. The curtains part as the Olympia Film Festival hosts several concert-worthy guests including Dame Darcy and Death By Doll, and a very special visit from Steven Severin of the famed Siouxsie and the Banshees in his only Northwest performance with his original score for the classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. With generous support, in the form of a $5,000 grant from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, we’re bringing several exciting guests to create stronger relationships between filmmakers and the Olympia community.
Several Northwest premieres are spotlit including the adorable Etienne!, as a man takes his terminally ill pet hamster on a bicycle trip up the California coast; the British crime comedy Down Terrace featuring cast from the original The Office; and the ‘lost’ feature Shut Yer Dirty Little Mouth starring Glenn Shadix of Beetlejuice and Heathers.
Contemporary documentary cinema shakes the house with Henry Rollins biting hard on American waste-ism in H for Hunger; Jennifer Maas unveiling ‘60s and ‘70s Seattle soul musicians with Wheedle’s Groove, and the colorful creation Sissyboy, based on the legendary Portland performance troupe, with a special one-night-only performance!
Of special note for Olympians is Simone Bitton’s somber documentary, Rachel, an investigative report into the untimely passing of peace activist Rachel Corrie..
Can someone please explain to me why people are trying to sneak into the Olympia Film Festival? OFS is a struggling volunteer-run organization, it's not like we're The Man. Everyone I've caught has had the money to buy a ticket, and if they're really so poor, a single hour of volunteer work would earn them a free ticket. I find this very frustrating.
Come see a Great movie during the Olympia Film Festival, "Great Speeches From A Dying World", AND help support EGYHOP, a shoe-string-budget, direct-service-providing, all-volunteer-run, non-profit group serving homeless and low-income populations in downtown Olympia.
First, about the movie (quoted from the festival guide):
