NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) in conjunction with the Producers Guild of America (PGA) proudly present a screening event in celebration of the Make Your Mark Weekend Shorts Competition on Saturday, November 10th at the South Park Center in Downtown LA. The event will open with a red carpet reception, followed by the Awards show consisting of the screening of the Top 10 short films (5 minutes each in length) and culminating with the presentation of the awards and closing with food and drinks.
The mission of the Make Your Mark Weekend Shorts Competition Presented By The Producers Guild of America (PGA), 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 the program reflect themes and elements found in the work of a well-established producer’s films. This year’s 2018 Competition honors the legacy of Producer/Director SYDNEY POLLACK. Select program judges include Bill Horberg (Producer – The Kite Runner | Cold Mountain | The Talented Mr. Ripley), Gary Lucchesi (Producer – Million Dollar Baby), Lori McCreary (Producer – Invictus), Hawk Koch (Producer – Hostage | Frequency), Bruna Papandrea (Producer – Gone Girl | Wild) and Jeanne Tripplehorn (Actor – Criminal Minds | Big Love).
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 Charles Howard, New Media Delegate of the Producers Guild of America (PGA).
