The CFM Film A Scene Competition is a monthly filmmaking contest that allows students and learning filmmakers the opportunity to grow and diversify their storytelling skills and film production knowledge. Each contest month we will introduce a new creative prompt or genre that you will use to go out and shoot a scene. At the beginning of a competition month, you can purchase a ticket online and get started on crafting your scene. Tickets will be $10 and all submission fees will be used as prize money for the top 3 winning scenes. After writing, filming, and editing your scene, you will submit it by the end of the competition month. Once the submission deadline passes we will hold a voting period on Instagram, further involving our community and putting eyes on your work. As you share your scenes with other filmmakers we hope it will strengthen our community and encourage collaboration. We believe this competition is a terrific outlet for supporting creativity and growth.
