It’s December. Winter is settling in and Christmas is around the corner. If you are in the Whistler area and are hoping to check out some short films before hitting the slopes, the 8th Annual MPPIA Short Film Award Pitch will take place December 6th, 10:30 am to 12 noon at the Grand Foyer of the Whistler Conference Centre.
Five finalists will be presenting their short films in front of a panel of judges for a chance to win a coveted cash prize of $10,000 from the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia. Another $5,000 will be awarded to the winner from Creative BC, as well as in-kind film production services up to $100,000 for a short film project to be completed within one year of winning the award.
The finished project will premiere at next year’s Whistler Film Festival. Last year’s winner Nick Citton will have his film ‘The Future Perfect’ screened after the awards show at 1 pm at Whistler’s Millennium Centre.
