Entry Deadline: June 1, 2018
So many life-stories deserve to be told, stories about people who lived and loved well. As a filmmaker, you have the power to tell these stories, and that's exactly what we want you to do.
About the Contest
We are looking for short films, under five minutes in length, that commemorate the life of someone who has died, or pay tribute to someone who is still alive—the eulogy you’d create for them… or for yourself. Our goal is to show a variety of ways that life can be remembered through film.
Style and Format
Any style of film is welcome. It’s your film. Our only request is that it be under five minutes in length and that it commemorate a life that is important to you. Films are accepted in the following formats: WMV, AVI, MP4 or Quicktime.
First place: $10,000
Second place: $5,000
Third place: $2,500
Winners will also be celebrated at the Milwaukee Film Festival and at the NFDA International Convention & Expo hosted by the contest’s sponsor, the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA)*.
