Green Screen Filmmaking Contest

Details: The Hart House Film Board and Raindance on Campus present the Green Screen Filmmaking Contest. Green Screen filmmaking is a special effects technique whereby you video tape a subject in front of a green background and later using editing software the green can be keyed out and replaced with any other image. The best entries will be screened at the U of T Film Festival on March 28 and a prize awarded to the top entry.

When: Deadline to enter the contest: March 11
Cost: Free to enter.

Contest Rules:

  • Films can be no longer than 3 minutes.
  • One part of the frame must be created with Green Screen at all times (in other words, there is always a green screen element on the screen. No exceptions.)

How to submit:
Use the U of T Film Festival Entry form and mention “green screen” in the synopsis of your film.
