I’m super exited to be one of the judges at the Timelapse Film Festival 2016 in Los Angeles – along with the Crème de la Crème of Time Lapse Photography: Godfrey Reggio, Gary Yost, Peter Bill and Tom Lowe. Submissions are open now, so make sure to participate and probably join us in person this summer in LA – this will be super cool!
Let me quote from the press release for the event:
The annual Timelapse Film Festival has been established to celebrate Timelapse filmmakers world-wide. For the inaugural event, an industry leading panel of judges has been assembled, including Godfrey Reggio (Director of Koyaanisqatsi), Gunther Wegner (Inventor of LRTimelapse Software), Gary Yost (Noted Timelapse Filmmaker/Photographer) and Peter Bill (Professor of New Media and Interdisciplinary Arts at Western New Mexico University) and Tom Lowe (Award-Winning Cinematographer and Director of “Timescapes”).
The 2016 Timelapse Film Festival is focused on bringing together the world-wide community of Timelapse Filmmakers and the world-wide audience of enthusiasts who love viewing Timelapse films. Submissions of Timelapse films, handled through Film Freeway, will be accepted world-wide starting March 12, 2016.
In order to highlight the amazing quality and volume of Timelapse films, five categories have been established, including:
- Northern Lights,
- Documentary/Social Commentary and
Juried awards will be given in each category, as well as the Grand Prize “Best in Show” Award. In addition to the Juried awards, Timelapse enthusiasts from around the world can vote on-line for their “People’s Favorite” film.
The Timelapse Film Festival and Awards Ceremony will be held on August 13, 2016 at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, California. The event will showcase the top films in each category. The Awards, including “Best in Show” will be presented at the event. Tickets to the Timelapse Film Festival and Awards Ceremony will be available to the general public.
The non-profit American Cinematheque will have timelapse related programming all weekend at the Aero Theatre, in addition to the Timelapse Film Festival day. Details will appear on the website aerotheatre.com as information becomes available.
Hoping to see many of you participate by submitting your work and, if you can, meet you in LA this summer! 🙂
