Make a Film About Your Block
It’s a community building exercise. It’s a challenge. It’s a crowd-sourced contest. Woo Hoo: I am so ready for my close-up, CB.
On My Block Films (OMB) invites New York City residents from all five boroughs to create and complete a one to five-minute length short narrative or documentary film on their block using only residents of the block as cast and crew in an effort to strengthen communities through the collaborative filmmaking process.
Beginning August 1, all eligible films will be posted and screened online from the time they are finished until November 1, 2012. The public will be able to vote on a film by liking it on Vimeo. The 30 films with the most Vimeo likes will move on to be judged by the Judging Panel the first week of November. The top-scoring 15 films will be screened at a physical outdoor festival in November. Awards will be presented to Best Narrative Film, Best Documentary Film and Best In Show.
