Topic: 2015 Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival

The Brickfilmer's Guild is proud to present the 2015 Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival.  The BFG Film Festival is an online brickfilming festival that will showcase some of the best brickfilms of 2015. We invite all brickfilmers to submit their best brickfilm of 2015.

Your entry can be a brickfilm that has already been made, or one you make just for this festival, as long as it was published in 2015.  You have until the end of the year to submit your brickfilm.

This year's festival will have a prestigious judges panel, with representatives from all around the world.  The first round of the judging will be done by Big Monkey of thefourmonkeys, after the deadline passes.  He will narrow down all of the entries to just 20-40 finalist entries which will be judged by all five judges.  This list will be made into a playlist on the Brickfilmer's Guild YouTube Channel.

Judges:
Big Monkey (Administrator at Brickfilmer's Guild)
David Pickett (Co-founder of Set Bump)
Pritchard Studios (Moderator on BricksInMotion.com)
Mirko Horstmann (Administrator at Brickboard)
Aiwha - Bruno Lefèvre (Developer at Brick Brack)

Story and Screen Play

Best Brickfilm that includes the BFG logo (Judged by Big Monkey)
BFG Members Choice (Voted on by BFG Members)
Best Brickfilm of Festival

There will also be various honorable mentions categories.

Prizes:
We will continue the tradition that was started last year.  There will be no physical prizes awarded to the winners.  Winning and being nominated for anything in this festival is the prize itself, however the winner of "Best Film" will be added to the list of past winners in the BFG Library.

Re: 2015 Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival

I might enter something, but I don't think any of my brickfilms are good enough even to be shown mini/lol

Re: 2015 Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival

I shall submit this week, after a quick tweak of a film.

Re: 2015 Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival

I just finally got around to submitting.
It's always nice to submit something to this.

And I'm quite happy that I managed to make at least one film this year.

Thanks.  It's been really fun and we look forward to making a lot more.  FYI, we now have an official thread in the Community section of Forums for discussing all things BFG related (except for this contest).  We would love to get feedback and ideas about the podcast and other BFG related things.  When there is a news worthy item we will try to post it there along with the typical Facebook, Google+, and Twitter locations.
