With the Awards Show approaching, we’re excited to share some great news:
As you can see, some things have changed around here. First of all, we’re blogging now. So Facebook and Twitter won’t be our only news platforms any more. From now on, any relevant info about the festival can be found right here as well. In the near future, we’re also going to blog about topics like DIY filmmaking, crowdfunding, microbudgeting and the future of cinema. If you’re running a cool project or would simply like to share your thoughts on this blog, feel free to contact us. We’re always looking for contributors. Besides, enjoy our new video gallery featuring all submissions filterable by category and shortlist. It’s pretty and neat and loads way faster than the old one.
New Sponsors and Prizes
The Awards Show will also be supported by the City of Ludwigsburg and Coca Cola. Plus, the overall winners can look forward to additional prizes sponsored by the City of Ludwigsburg which will be revealed on November 9, 2011.
Your Chance to Become a Judge
From now on, every day we’ll reveal one out of 10 jury picks which will be in the Official Selection for the Awards Show on November 9, 2011. As soon as all jury picks are announced, you’ll be able to participate in a fun Awards Prediction Game. Show your judgement and compete against other people from all over the world. We have a very special reward awaiting the winner: official jury membership for next year’s Cinema Out of Your Backpack Festival! So stay tuned for more…
That’s it for now. Feel free to leave any feedback. And of course, have fun browsing through our new home!
