NewFilmmakers Los Angeles in conjunction with the Producers Guild of America proudly present a screening event* in support of the Make Your Mark, A Short Film Competition, on Saturday, September 6th at the AT&T Center in Downtown LA. The event will screen the Top 10 short films (3-5 minutes in length) followed by a reception and after party with food and drinks.

The mission of the Make Your Mark, A Short Film Competition Presented By The Producers Guild of America and Cadillac, is to support talented emerging producers by using the inspirational spirit of the industry’s top Producers to spark the imagination of new generations of storytellers. Entries for Make Your Mark reflected themes and elements found in the work of a well-established producer’s films. This year legendary producer Saul Zaentz was the inspiration. Select program judges include Kathy Bates, Danny DeVito. Michael Douglas and more. Net proceeds from the entry fees go to the Producers Guild Foundation, which is a 501 (c) (3) charity. Revenues raised by the competition will be used to further educational outreach for producers and emerging filmmakers through the Producers Guild Foundation.

The event will be hosted by Vance Van Petten, National Executive Director of the PGA.

* This screening event is not part of the outlined competition or related to the judging for the competition. Finalist filmmakers are not required to attend.

** These shorts run approximately 5-minutes in length
