Attention all Canadian short film makers: CBC Television’s short film contest, Short Film Face Off, will be returning this fall for its eighth season. As in past seasons, Short Film Face Off brings together film makers from all over Canada, where they compete for a generous prize package of $30,000 in film production costs. For four fun-filled weeks, viewers will be treated to the newest crop of Canadian short films. Each film is carefully reviewed by a panel of judges, while the winning film is chosen by a studio and television-viewing audience.
The deadline to submit your film to the show is April 10, 2015, 5 p.m. local time.
