Film Office Announces Filmmaking Competition by Jim Wertz

The Greater Erie Film Office (GEFO) and the Alzheimer’s Association – Greater Pa Chapter have announced part II of the duos 2015 filmmaking competition.

The filmmakers will each produce their version of Erie filmmaker Tim Larson’s short screenplay, Age of Kaos, which was awarded the top prize in the screenwriting portion of this competition. The theme of the competition was dementia and/or memory loss. Larson’s script crosses genres, rooted partly in the comic book universe of the writer (Art Weaver/Captain Karma) and partly in the dementia care facility where his caregiver works (Nurse Alex/Alexandra).

Submission deadline for the filmmaking competition is October 31, 2015. The contest is open to Pennsylvania filmmakers. Registration is $40 and $30 for students. Top prize is $500 plus Free admission to all 2016 GEFO Seminars ($60 Value), Film Society NWPA Membership Card ($50 Value), and Judges’ Notes. For more information, email info@filmerie.com or check out the full submission details and rules on the GEFO Press Release.
