CALL FOR ENTRIES: First Person Impressions Competition
First Person Arts announces its NATIONAL COMPETITION FOR MEMOIR AND DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS
Each day countless stories unfold. Take a real life experience of your own and tell it in a way that only you can through the art of filmmaking. Make the ordinary magical, or the exotic familiar. Shock us, amaze us or make us pause to reflect. The only rule is that it’s real.
