3 TEAMS, 5 DAYS OF FILMING, 1 WINNER – Sept 26
Indiana Film Race is a unique production experience made into a competition of filmmakers creating stories that they will have to film in 5 select counties in West Central Indiana. There will be 3 teams, filming over 5 days in those select counties, a race to produce the best short film with a grand prize of $10,000.
FILM 765, LLC is proud to introduce an original reality-based film race that will spotlight three filmmaking teams that will have five days to shoot a short film (10-15 minutes including credits), as they travel through five counties in West Central Indiana, focusing on selected areas approved by each county through their Visitor’s Centers, Indiana Tourism, and Film Indiana. The purpose of this competition is two-fold — The primary goal is to promote movie making in Indiana by exposing our viewers to the incredible destination locations available for film production in Indiana. The second is to showcase film talent to our viewers via a television distribution agreement.
