The Brickworld Cinema Team is excited to announce the ninth annual Brickworld Film Festival!

The event theme for Brickworld Chicago 2020 is “Bridges” and we’re excited to see how directors will adapt the theme literally or metaphorically. Contestants will be eligible to win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes, in addition to the attendee only prizes! We are once again proudly sponsored by minifigs.me and are excited to get more phonetic heads out to brickfilmers!

While attending Brickworld Chicago isn’t required to enter the contest, we highly recommend it. In addition to the film festival, we will be running a LEGO animation workshop, screening a special film, showcasing models from our latest animations, and generally hanging out and talking about LEGO.

All eligible films will screen continuously in the Brickfilm Theater for the duration of Brickworld Chicago. The attendees of Brickworld Chicago will vote on the films to decide the winners.

Official Rules
1. Your film should use LEGO elements to tell a story. It can be animated or live action, or a combination of the two.
2. Your film must be longer than 30 seconds and shorter than 5 minutes in length.
3. Your film must not have been submitted to any previous Brickworld Film Festival.
4. Your film does not have to include the theme “Bridges”, but it is highly encouraged.
5. Anyone can enter a film in the festival, but you must be a Full Registrant of Brickworld Chicago to be eligible for the “Best Attendee Film” award and prize.
6. Films should be enjoyable by all ages. Film content such as (but not limited to) curse words/swearing, excessive violence, sexual content, and drug use will be grounds for disqualification.
7. By entering your film for consideration, you attest that you hold all rights to exhibit the given work. This includes (but is not limited to) visuals, music, and characters. Unlicensed use of copyrighted material is not allowed.
8. By submitting your film, the Brickworld Film Festival is granted the right to use and/or publish clips or the full videos, screenshots, director and crew names, and any other material related to an entry in the event program, the Brickworld Film Festival screening, the Brickworld website, re-screenings at future Brickworld events, and for any and all promotional purposes.
9. Limit one (1) entry per director.

Re: The 2020 International Brickworld Film Festival

So a fully 3D animated film using Lego elements made in software such as Blender is permitted for entry?

Could we still submit a film that was made prior to this event?

The brickworld site just says, "In response to the Governor’s extension of the stay-at-home order in Illinois to May 30, 2020, we are doubtful we will be able to hold an event in June. Registration and ticket sales are currently closed and we will be making an announcement as soon as we are able to coordinate with the event team at our venue."

They haven't updated the info yet but everyone who registered already was sent an email a week ago about the actual cancellation.

Re: The 2020 International Brickworld Film Festival

Hi all,

Sorry about not getting the word out sooner. We have decided to postpone the film festival (instead of hosting a virutal one) until 2021. The Brickworld website page on the film festival should be updated shortly, but here's our statement below:

The Brickworld Cinema Team is saddened to announce that the Brickworld Chicago 2020 International Film Festival is being postponed until 2021. If you had submitted a film or were planning on submitting a film for 2020, entries for this year will still be counted as valid, but we will ask everyone to resubmit their films when the festival is re-announced in the spring of 2021. The theme for next year's film festival will still be "Bridges" with the same prizes and rules as before. We are as disappointed as many of our attendees and contestants, but we look forward to a great show in 2021!

Thank you to everyone who submitted or showed interest. We will be back before you know it!

Thanks!
