New Belgium Brewery contest seeks films about craft beers, sustainability and whimsy

Enter your film now into the New Belgium Brewery's Clips of Faith competition.

Amateur filmmakers, activists, aspiring actors and actresses, and accidental brilliance in video – we want it all.

The Rules:

◦Submit now through May 20, 2010

◦Film length 10 seconds to 10 minutes.

◦Incorporate one or more of New Belgium’s three main follies: Craft Beer; Sustainability (think environmental statements); Whimsy (think spoofs, giddy candid moments or anything worth watching)

◦You need to be at least 21 years of age and reside in the United States.

◦Filmmakers must secure rights to all theatrical performances, music and locations for each submission.

◦Keep it clean. Overconsumption of beer, gratuitous violence, sex or nudity will not be eligible for screening.

◦By submitting your film on our group page, you are granting us permission to show it at our Clips of Faith Beer and Film Tour.

O.K. Now for the fun part. The bestest of the best submissions will be compiled into a feature-length film that will visit 14 tremendously hip cities on our Clips of Faith Beer & Film Tour. Will one be yours?

How about if we sweeten the brew? We’ll reward the top 3 filmmakers with a trip to New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado, for a private screening and beer dinner extraordinaire.

Either way – you have a darn good chance of getting your film out there on the big screen.

Our team of judges includes filmmakers, brewers, carnies and hopefully someone famous if we can talk them into it.
