Balcony Diaries Weekend Film Challenge – PRIDE EDITION!

In partnership with Halifax Pride, AFCOOP’s at-home filmmaking challenge is back with a twist! Participants are challenged to make a short film from start to finish over the course of a single weekend (while maintaining social distancing rules). On the first day of the challenge, participants will be sent an email which will include a theme connected to the 2020 Halifax Pride Festival and a prop they will be required to use in their film. Films will be presented online the following weekend and audience members will vote for their favourite.

We’ve upped the prize component this round to include gift cards for both the runner up and the winner from Venus Envy and Glitter Bean Cafe!

How it works:

  • Register by noon on July 17th (it’s FREE)
  • At 5pm on July 17th you’ll be sent your at-home filmmaking challenge (a theme and a prop).
  • Complete your short film over the weekend of July 17th – 19th.
  • Upload your film to Vimeo (with no password and make sure you allow it to be added to “collections”).
  • Send your Vimeo link to submissions@afcoop.ca by noon on Monday July 20th.

Films will be screened online the weekend of July 25th – 26th during Pride!
