The Going Green Film Fest Launches the Digital Green Project

Sept. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA October 1, 2012 - The Going Green Film Festival has launched the Digital Green Project; an innovate program created to stimulate green-produced digital films. Up to three filmmmakers will be selected and their projects crowd-funded.  Completed films will screen at the 2013 Going Green Film Festival, taking place at Regal Cinemas LA Live, April 17-19, 2013.

Our vision is simple: not only encourage, but have a hand in producing greened films.  This project allows us to spotlight those films and filmmakers.

Although we have announced our Official Selections for 2013,  filmmakers from around the world still have an opportunity to participate in the festival.

How does the Digital Green Project work? Filmmakers submit a short film script, budget, crew information for consideration.  The script can be of ANY subject, ANY genre.  They must agree, however, to shoot the film digitally (whether from a digital camera, their smart phone, etc.) They must also agree to a $5000 or under budget, to green-produce their film; meaning they take the environment into consideration during all phases of production; from not using plastic bottles, to using non-toxic paint and reclaimed wood for sets, etc.  Example guidelines to follow are given to the filmmakers and also available on the Producer's Guide of America's Green Production Guide website.

Three projects will be selected for crowd-funding; allowing their world-wide audience to participate in the filmmaking process by financially supporting the film of their choice.  In exchange, these supporters, (also known as co-associate producers), will be listed in the credits of the film and invited to the premiere.

The winning filmmaker(s) will enjoy a guaranteed premiere of their film, along with participating in a Q&A following their screening.

For more information, including submission guidelines, go to  Submissions close November 20, 2012.
