Plugging a regional festival for our neighbors to the east.
ABERDEEN, S.D. - Submissions are being accepted until July 16 for the 4th annual South Dakota Film Festival (SDFF) in Aberdeen, S.D., Sept. 10-12, 2010.
“This year marks the first year that the South Dakota Film Festival has partnered with Withoutabox for the submission process. We are excited about this partnership because Withoutabox aggressively markets festivals directly to filmmakers, increasing our exposure to the global filmmaking industry,” said Troy McQuillen, co-producer of the South Dakota Film Festival.
The SDFF screens films in three categories: narrative, documentary, and animation. The categories include both short and feature-length films.
Last year’s film festival screened 30 films from 10 states and one other country, including seven from South Dakota. The international submission was from Australia.
All films chosen from eligible submissions will be screened for the public during the three-day festival. Last year, about 1,000 people attended the event.
“The SDFF is a great opportunity to have a completely different film-going experience than what the general public is used to,” McQuillen said. “Filmmakers need opportunities like this to exhibit their work to audiences.”
More information about the submission process, rules and guidelines, and the festival can be found at www.southdakotafilmfest.org

If selected to be a part of our Author Interview filmmaker network, when assigned a project, you will hold a preliminary phone conversation with the author to discuss what it is they would like to capture in the interview. You will then schedule a time to meet at the author’s preferred location to conduct and shoot the interview. In order to make the final product as interesting as possible, you will also need to shoot creative B-roll and lay in stock music underscoring. Filmmaker will then submit a rough cut of the interview for approval and notes, adjust accordingly and then turn in your final cut. A series of interview questions will be provided, but filmmaker must be comfortable working with a variety of personalities and getting the most out of an interview.
Projects will be assigned to geographically appropriate filmmakers.
Filmmakers will be paid $500 per project, payable upon completion of approved final cut.
Filmmakers wishing to be considered for our network may apply by going to www.authorsolutionsfilm.com and clicking on “Interviewers”. Please follow the instructions on the application.
As part of the application process, you will be asked to provide a link to a SAMPLE INTERVIEW. We are asking all interested filmmakers to put together a 60 second interview to give us an idea as to how you might shoot something like this. Your interview subject can be anything/anybody you want. Just be creative and show us the level of work we should expect from you.
Take a look at the following two examples interviews:
Please make sure to follow ALL of the instruction on the application form, and we’ll look forward to reviewing your work. All submissions will be viewed, and the filmmakers we are interested in possibly working with will be contacted.
