In the interests of promoting opportunities for vertical filmmakers, we want to let you know about another tallscreen video competition (some might say our ‘rival’ — but so far as we’re concerned the more the merrier! :-)
Nespresso Talents 2016 is for 3min vertical shorts also (although our Vertical Film Festival accepts longer videos for screening out of competition). Nespresso's event happens before the VFF (their deadline is the 10th of April) so the good news is that you can enter their competition and ours without breaking any rules.
Nespresso deadline 10 April
Vertical FF deadline 30 April
Nespresso winners announced 12 May at Cannes screening
Vertical FF winners announced 21 May at Katoomba screening
Or, if your film’s already finished and ready to go, here’s one other (much smaller) competition to consider: MIP Digital Fronts http://verticalvideo.miptv.com/ — but be quick as it closes today!
