We're looking for a few good Parkies to represent us at the Sleepless in Lake Placid Film Festival

Last year, a team of Parkies won the Audience Choice Award at the Lake Placid Film Forum's "Sleepless in Lake Placid" 24-hour filmmaking competition.

This year, we're looking for a few good Parkies to do it again!

Here are the details:

WHAT: "Sleepless in Lake Placid" brings together students from regional film schools to participate in the experience of creating a short film within the constraints of a 24-hour deadline. Films are screened on the closing night of the festival, and two pri the Robin Pell Emerging Filmmaker's Award (including a cash prize of $500) and the Audience Choice Award. The feedback we have received from past participants competition has been overwhelmingly positive.

WHO: This year's competition is tentatively scheduled to feature teams from 6 schools: Emerson College (last year's Robin Pell Award winner), Ithaca College (last year's Audience Choice winner), Syracuse University, Burlington College, and two new participants: Middlebury College and Ohio University.

Teams will consist of 4 students enrolled in undergraduate programs at their respective schools, plus 1 team advisor. Teams will be expected to arrive in Lake Placid on Wednesday, June 10, and team advisors will be housed at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts Artist-in-Residence Housing. The cost for participating teams is $600, and provides participating students and advisors with all the privileges (admittance to screenings and selected events) of a festival pass holder.

Interested? Put together a team, and write me a brief description of your talents, your experience and your interest. We have to let them know by January 30, so please submit that to me by Wednesday, January 28.
