First Annual Bethesda Film Festival In The Works


Published:

The Bethesda Urban Partnership (BUP) is calling for entries into the first ever Bethesda Film Fest, which will feature five documentaries at Imagination Stage next spring. BUP, the county-funded nonprofit in charge of marketing and maintaining downtown Bethesda, is looking for filmmakers from Maryland, Virginia and D.C. to submit their five- to 20-minute documentaries. Those selected will get a chance to discuss their films when they are shown on March 23 at Imagination Stage. Information on the event and how to submit a film is here. The Bethesda Art & Entertainment District Board will pick five films, with help from Angelica Das, associate director of the Center for Social Media at American University's School of Communication, and David Stern, director of Digital Media at Imagination Stage. DVD entries must be submitted by Dec. 10. Notification of selection will be sent in January and the panel will select one additional film by an under-18 filmmaker. Filmmakers who make it into the festival will get a $150 prize.
