In case you haven’t heard yet, CBC Television will be broadcasting the newest season of Short Film Face Off this fall. This program, being taped June 17, 18, 19 and 20 at its studios in Halifax, features 9 short film makers competing for the top prize of $45,000 in film production costs.
The film makers come from all across Canada and the featured films represent a mix of different genres. The show will be broadcast September 13, 20, 27 and October 4, and the viewers will have a chance to vote for their favourite film via telephone or online. Check out the website and YouTube clip for more info:
I’m happy to see this program broadcast on CBC-TV in the early evening (albeit on Saturdays). It’s a perfect way for the general public to get a glimpse into Canadian films and their creators. I also like the fact that the audience may participate with the show through voting. You can follow Short Film Face Off on Twitter: @cbcshortfilm
I’ll definitely be watching in September. See you there!
