In view of the deadline extension from March 15, those who have submitted films may choose to use the additional time to re-edit and submit again by the new deadline.
There is no charge to enter the competition, which is open to North Carolina residents.
M4 aims to explore the creative and expressive potential of today’s most widely-owned film medium — the mobile phone. The broad availability of mobile phone cameras puts movie-making in everyone’s hands, first-timers and experienced techies alike.
In partnership with a/perture cinema, NC Piedmont Triad Film Commission and Wake Forest University’s Film Studies program, The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) is proud to present the M4 Competition.
The categories for the M4 competition are:
4. Special theme: Pulp/Noir
One winner will be selected in each category who will receive an iPod touch.
From playful to bold to insightful, the M4 Competition invites people across North Carolina to embark on a video journey — share a story, make a statement, try an experiment. With a mobile phone, anyone can be a movie maker.
Filming for the contest must be done on a mobile device such as a cell phone, mp3 player or a tablet. Participants can only submit one entry in total. Films can be no longer than 120 seconds in length. For a complete list of rules, please visit www.secca.org.
SECCA is linking the special-theme category to exhibitions in the SECCA galleries. For this competition, the theme is “Pulp/Noir”
