IFP and Current TV have formed a strategic partnership.
First project under the joint venture is a competition that will allow aspiring filmmakers the chance to showcase their shortform video productions.
All submissions to the competition will be uploaded to Current’s Web site. IFP and Current TV will jointly select the winners, with the 30 top finalists selected by voting in Current’s online community.
Ten entries will be selected as winners on Aug. 15.
Current TV will air at least three of the 10 winning videos.
The complete showcase will stream via the Current TV and IFP Web sites beginning in August. Showcase will also unspool for the film industry during the 28th annual IFP Market (Sept. 17-21).
