PROMOTING EDUCATION AND PARTICIPATION
Part of our mission is to help people learn and advance their expertise in filmmaking and related arts. One of the ways we accomplish this is by sponsoring and promoting Film Challenges.
This platform has proven to be very effective in the personal growth and advancement for participants in the film industry.
HOW DO CHALLENGES WORK?
Independent production teams are formed to produce a film. Writers, directors, producers, actors, musicians, artists, editors, make-up artists and many others come together to complete a film that will be judged and qualify for awards.
WHAT DO CHALLENGE PARTICIPANTS GAIN?
The hands-on experience gained by participating in these productions and working with others is invaluable.
Each chapter may conduct its own Challenges and local activities. At least once a year, all Chapters will participate in a network-wide Challenge. Winners from local Chapter Challenges will automatically be entered into a friendly inter-city competition with other Chapters.
Let Me Entertain You – online challenge.
– Self-taped Monologue – Max run-time 2 minutes.
– Actor-Less Short – Max run-time 3 minutes.
– Short story told on screen – Max run-time 4 minutes.
There are no Network-wide Past Challenges at this time. For an overview of past Challenges conducted by OIF’s Founding Chapter, visit https://oifstudio.com and click on “Challenges” in the navigation area.
WHAT IS IN STORE FOR THE FUTURE?
We are currently establishing various chapters throughout Florida. These are led by passionate local film community members.
These local chapters will help to further friendly competition and activities to be shared with members of other chapters.
