The Cinema-Libre Organization strives to recognize young and successful filmmakers by giving awardances towards equipment and scholarship. Cinema-Libre is a filmmaking doctrine with Official Tenets. If you are looking for help and guidance as a writer, Cinema-Libre can help through several means.
The Cinema-Libre Film Festival incorporates films which exemplify the Cinema-Libre Basic Tenets. It is ultimately a goal to provide a yearly Cinema-Libre Film Festival to allow for the public screening of films that have attempted to manifest these goals into their projects and onto the screen, and to provide College Scholarships to young filmmakers.
Categories for competition will include Short, Student, Young Student (K-12), International Short Non-English, International Feature Length, American, and Do-It-Yourself Film Festival competitors.
Shorts will also be displayed and students as young as pre-school will be encouraged to compete in the pin-hole camera competition. Pin-Hole Camera Competition topics will be announced several months before festival competition and will deal with topics such as "I Love My City" and 'Good 'Good Night.''
The International, American, Student and Short Competitions will include audience pick, Critic's Choice, and Competitor's Advantage competition categories.based upon audience choice, critic's choice, and the filmmakers themselves selecting winners. Criteria will be based upon the use of the ideas presented in the Cinema-Libre Basic Tenets.
Commencing at the culmination of the Project Period Seminars, visitors and attendees will have access to Ideation tools with the 'Shaman Logo" which offers the ideas written upon them special copyright protection and measures of protection for artists towards binding arbitration.
