Video contest still accepting entries

From dance fantasies to dream machines, the visions of Rogue Valley filmmakers are hitting the screen in the Mail Tribune's fourth annual Two-Minute Film Festival.

The contest has six entries so far and there's still plenty of time to enter your short flick.

The contest challenges filmmakers to create a two-minute video — preferably one with a plot or story suitable for all audiences.

Enter by 11:59 a.m. Wednesday, April 9. Check out the competition and vote for your favorites during the same time period. Online voters will select a people's choice award.

A panel of expert judges will select first, second and third place winners. The judges are Southern Oregon University emerging media and digital arts professor Erik Palmer, Ashland Independent Film Festival screener Mandy Valencia and Mail Tribune web content producer Ryan Pfeil.

All winners will be announced online and in the Mail Tribune's April 13 Sunday Life edition.

First prize is a year-long basic membership from Southern Oregon Film & Television. Valued at $30, the year-long membership includes digital newsletters and opportunities to network with fellow members and participate in demos and seminars.

Second prize is a $20 Cinemark gift certificate. Third prize is a $15 Cinemark gift certificate. The people's choice winner will get a $20 gift certificate for Dutch Bros.
