The 3rd Babelgum Online Film Festival (BOFF3) is kicking.

In response to the success of its previous editions helmed by Oscar-nominated director Spike Lee, Chairman Emeritus of the Jury, independent web and mobile video content platform Babelgum is pleased to announce the call for entries for the 3rd Babelgum Online Film Festival (BOFF3). This year's BOFF will feature simultaneous mobile and online viewing and voting by the global public in four categories. As part of the festival, Stolichnaya Vodka will present the inaugural Stoli Emerging Filmmaker Award.

 

Acclaimed filmmakers and industry experts including writer/director Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise, School of Rock, Me and Orson Welles), writer/director Sally Potter (Orlando, Yes, RAGE), director/producer Annie Sundberg (The Trials of Darryl Hunt, The Devil Came on Horseback, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work), producer Eric Watson (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain), and director/curator Jason Wishnow (Oedipus, Director of Film & Video, TED), will be among those serving as Jurors for the Festival.  Awards will be presented in four categories with additional Jury members to be announced soon.

 

The Babelgum Online Film Festival was created to celebrate and reward the very best in international independent short filmmaking by providing exposure and cash awards. With its non-restrictive submission guidelines and international visibility, the festival supports and encourages emerging talent and continues to provide a unique venue for filmmakers to showcase their craft.

 

For this year's edition, Babelgum has partnered with Shooting People, the world's largest network of independent filmmakers, to reach its 35,000+ global membership and the 2 million plus constituents of its partner organizations. The Stoli Emerging Filmmaker and BOFF3 Award Winners will be announced at a screening and cocktail reception in New York City in late April.

 

Karol Martesko-Fenster, SVP & General Manager of Babelgum's Film Division, stated, "The first two editions of the Babelgum Online Film Festival made an impressive debut with filmmakers, the entertainment community, and audience members around the world. We are very excited to be launching the 3rd edition of BOFF and are honored that Stolichnaya Vodka has demonstrated its commitment to independent film by agreeing to partner with us. We are looking forward to highlighting the deserving work of filmmakers around the globe including those in Shooting People's extensive professional community."

 

From London, James Mullighan, Shooting People's Creative Director, said: "Shooting People has greatly admired the opportunities offered to undiscovered independent filmmaking talent by the Babelgum Online Film Festival's previous two editions. As such, we are delighted to be so heavily involved with the third edition of BOFF, and will be exhorting our members to enter, and get amongst the generous prizes."
