Vancouver, BC…Crazy8s is once again inviting aspiring filmmakers to submit their short film idea in a 4-minute video pitch.
Six winners will receive $1,000 and a production package worth tens of thousands of dollars – everything they need to make their film – in just 8 Crazy days!
Finished films will be screened to the who’s who of the Vancouver Film Industry at a Gala Screening on February 24th, 2018 at the Centre, followed by a not-to-be-missed After-Party at Science World followed by submissions to film festivals and markets nationally and around the world.
It’s fast! It’s fun! It’s Crazy8s!
“Crazy8s is truly the single best way in BC to launch your career.”
– Zach Lipovsky, who won a spot on the Spielberg reality show ‘On the Lot’ with his Crazy8s film ‘Crazy Late’, who signed as a director with Verve Talent in LA, and is currently directing and executive producing the TV series Mech-X4 for Disney

Filmmakers will hear from event producers Paul Armstrong, Stephanie Halber and Alicia Bernbaum about what is expected in the video pitch, how the selection process works, and what to expect in terms of support if their project is selected.
Filmmakers will also hear from past Crazy8s filmmakers about the experience of participating in Crazy8s and from Crazy8s judges on what makes for a great Crazy8s project and a great Crazy8s pitch. There will be a screening of both the video-taped pitches and the finished films for several successful past Crazy8s projects.
So we highly recommend that filmmakers come out to the Info Session if possible, even if you have applied online, as you will learn many valuable tips on pitching.
There will also be door prizes – including free registration for one lucky team! It is free to attend the Session.
The application fee of $50 (cash or cheque payable to Crazy8s Film Society) and completed application form should be brought to the registration session (although we will have application forms on hand). Application forms can be downloaded at http://crazy8s.film/

Video pitches are due Oct 30, 2017 at 7:00pm. Then come celebrate at a joint Raindance Booze n’Schmooze Hallowe’en Party. Note that this year Video Pitches must be 4 minutes.
A video pitch jury will then select the top 40 projects to pitch in-person to a jury of Industry professionals. The jury will choose 12 finalists who will be paired with a professional story editor to craft their script before presenting it again to the jury.
