Announcing the Margot George Short Film Competition 2012

Printer-friendly version

The MARGOT GEORGE SHORT FILM COMPETITION is intended as a celebration of Vermont’s historical and culturally significant places. Eligible subjects include buildings, structures, or public spaces and can be well-known landmarks or sites special to a particular group.  Films should illuminate how the featured environment reflects local identity and tradition and creates a sense of place.  The film should focus on one community, but may include more than one site. The theme is deliberately broad, designed to allow imagination and creativity to run riot across the endlessly varied geography, topography and history of Vermont.

The competition has been inaugurated in memory of Margaret (Margot) George who was one of the founders of the Montpelier Heritage Group.  Margot George led the successful effort to revive and preserve the historic cityscape of Montpelier, Vermont’s capital city and home of the Green Mountain Film Festival.

Films will be accepted in all genres. To be eligible, all we ask is that films have a maximum duration of  10  MINUTES.  The competition is not limited to residents of Vermont.   Download rules and regulations here.

The postmark deadline for entries is December 1, 2011.

The winning films will be screened at the 15th Green Mountain Film Festival and the filmmakers will receive cash prizes of $1,000 (in the 18 and over category), and $500 (in the under 18 category.)
