New NVFF Category: Animated Short Films

Find below the official release from Napa Valley Film Festival on their new film category: Animated Short Films. Brought to you by Amazon Web Services, this new category looks to highlight the advancing technologies that have made filmmaking more accessible over the past ten to fifteen years.

The Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) is happy to announce our newest film category: the Animated Short Films, sponsored by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The category, officially announced on May 9, 2013, will feature the best of the best in animated short filmmaking. Created to support digital filmmakers and provide a platform for launching their work, the category aims to highlight Animated Short Films and the leading-edge technologies used to create them. NVFF and AWS have teamed up to provide filmmakers unparalleled access to the AWS cloud, industry contacts and technological support in an effort to help filmmakers bring their vision to life. Best of all, filmmakers will be given free trial credits for AWS services to complete their films.

Much like the U.S. Narrative and Documentary Short Film competitions already in place at NVFF, the winners of both the Juried and Audience Awards in the Animated Short Films category will be selected and announced at the Closing Night Awards Ceremony on November 17, 2013.

Have an animated film that’s just waiting to come to life? Apply to NVFF’s Animated Short Filmscategory, sponsored by AWS, here. The deadline to submit your short film (20 minutes or shorter, in any stage of completion) is June 30, 2013, so get moving!
