CineFAM’s Micro Cinema Challenge seeks to celebrate unconventional forms of storytelling by women creators of colour. Due to advancing technology, more films are being made than ever before. Micro cinema is at the forefront of this movement, creatively inspired by the possibilities of new film and video technology.

CineFAM is looking for five brave filmmakers to subvert the traditional narrative style, creating a short (2-3 minute) film with unconventional filmmaking techniques using cell phones, GoPros, tablets or other low-budget equipment and working with a small crew to achieve an exciting new aesthetic.

Each filmmaker will receive production support from Trinity Square Video, mentorship from various industry professionals as well as the opportunity to attend a one day workshop on the micro-cinema movement. Completed films will enjoy a premiere screening at CaribbeanTales International Film Festival.

Micro-cinema thrives on a sense of adventure and discovery. Think you have what it takes? Apply today and participate in a new and radical way of creating films.
