CineGear Takes 2020 Film Series Competition Virtual on October 3

September 23, 2020 | By

cinegear.expoCineGear Expo has announced that its annual Film Series Competition will take place on Saturday, October 3, at noon PDT, and as with many things in 2020, it will be held virtually. People can participate free via phone, tablet, computer or smart television.

Guest hosted and moderated by Jay Holben, the festival will include a schedule of curated film finalists in different categories: Independent Shorts, Music Video/Commercials and Student Shorts with submissions from AFIUSC and London film schools

The screenings will be followed by a networking event complete with trivia and prize giveaways and chat with the viewers having a chance to vote for their favorite film in each category. These will be tallied by CineGear’s independent industry judges and then there will be an Awards Presentation where winners will receive filmmaking prizes donated by top industry tech and service companies.

You can register for the Film Series Competition and see the schedule here. Those who register will receive links and detailed instructions.

Screenings will take place between noon and 5:17 pm PDT and then the after-party will take place for the next hour after that.
