Be a Filmaka

Filmaka.com is an online community established by a mixture of independent producers, industry professionals and film financiers.

The goal of Filmaka.com is to give undiscovered filmmakers an opportunity to show custom made short films to industry professionals, award prizes to the most talented among them, and to find one truly talented director who will win a feature film deal with Filmaka at the end of the year.

Filmaka allows filmmakers to submit short films at the Entry Level, where they will be voted on by their own peers and at the Jury Level films are selected by a panel of industry professionals. The jury includes Thomas Augsberger, Mariela Besuievsky, Laura Bickford, Tim Delaney, Colin Firth, Werner Herzog, Dr Herbert Kloiber, Kenneth Lemberger, Neil LaBute, John Madden, Deepak Nayar, Zak Penn, Bill Pullman, Paul Schrader and Wim Wenders.

Filmaka will offer cash prizes to filmmakers in periodic competitions, but only one filmmaker will win a feature film deal over the course of one year after having competed with the winners, runner-ups and special prizewinners of each contest. Filmaka will also offer a revenue share opportunity in connection with the short films which the Company decides to pick up for distribution.
Beg or borrow a camera and get filming.
