Minneapolis, MN (PressExposure) May 06, 2014 -- RE/MAX Results has announced the start of its fifth Neighborhood Film Festival. The annual event engages local videographers and cinema students around the Twin Cities area, inviting them to create a three-minute film sharing why they love their city or community. Themed "Find Your Place," the 2014 Neighborhood Film Festival offers larger prizes than ever and welcomes new sponsorship.
Joining RE/MAX Results is past sponsor Bell Mortgage of Bell State Bank & Trust as well as Dunn Bros Coffee, a new festival sponsor that will be offering its own individual award in addition to the main prizes. RE/MAX Results prizes range from a $1,000 cash award for the People's Choice to $6,000 for the first place winner. Total, the RE/MAX Results Neighborhood Film Festival will be awarding $15,000 in cash prizes.
The top films will be screened at the RE/MAX Results Neighborhood Film Festival Awards Ceremony at Riverview Theater on November 6th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Community members and film enthusiasts, as well as friends and families of participants, are invited to attend. Tickets to the screening event will be $7.00 at the door.
RE/MAX Results will also be awarding five $2,000 scholarships to Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) students at the screening. Students who wish to participate in The Results Cinema Production Scholarship must submit a written essay by October 20, 2014. A film entry is not required, but students applying for the scholarship are still eligible to compete in the Neighborhood Film Festival as well.
