Call For Entries: Young Directors Night 2011

Attention filmmakers! LACMA Muse is now accepting submissions to its tenth annual Young Directors Night. YDN celebrates short films and the emerging artists behind them, showcasing up to eight films at a screening at LACMA. The 2011 edition of YDN will take place on Saturday, March 5. The chosen films will compete for the Art of Film Award, given to best in show as decided among a host panel of industry luminaries and the audience. Past winners have received tickets to the Sundance Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, and Los Angeles Film Festival.

We’re accepting submissions through January 15. YDN highlights a rich variety of shorts in all manner of genre. Two years ago the Art of Film Award went Adrian Castagna for his foreign-language sci-fi short El Ojo Unico, and last year Kristen Lepore won for her animated short Sweet Dreams (below). Clearly anything goes! The only condition for submissions is the films must be less than 30 minutes in length.

Click here to download the YDN application. There is no fee to submit. All submissions must be postmarked no later than January 15, 2011. Good luck!

Jason Gaulton, Muse Coordinator
