Ten semifinalists will be selected to participate in an Extreme Filmmaking Competition at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The 25 filmmakers were selected as the best from more than 400 short films submitted to the contest from around the country. Winners receive a $1 million feature film production deal courtesy of Chrysler, Hypnotic and Universal Pictures.
