What to Expect this Week
In case you missed it, we’re still catching our breath from the 156 entries that you all submitted to the contest! Many of the films were uploaded in the day or two before the deadline, so we are still working our way through and we want to give our advisors time to do the same. Don’t rush a good thing, right? You all put so much energy into making those four minutes, we find ourselves needing a few more to give them their due.
Top Ten Films
We’ll announce the top ten films by the end of the day on Tuesday, Feb. 11. These are the films that:
- – judges are voting on to determine top honors
- – have a chance at the 1st place film debut at the 2014 Food + Farm Film Fest in San Francisco
- – are eligible for the People’s Choice Award
Yes, that’s right: people’s choice – which means we need you, the people!
Online voting opens on Wednesday, Feb. 12th: get your family, friends, office mates, neighbors, CSA-ers together to celebrate by screening your film and all the top contenders! Whether it’s a potluck night, a happy hour, a real food throwdown, get it on the calendar before March 2nd to watch the entries and keep the momentum going:
+ Announcing: Staff Picks
Ten spots is hard. (Too hard.) We decided that we want to showcase more films that don’t land in the top ten: films that we loved, that we learned from, that are shedding light on important aspects of the food system. An encore round, if you will. More on this soon, but it’s clear that there are stories to tell – so we’re looking for more microphones.
If you have any questions in the meantime, let us know! We’re at info <at> realfoodmedia.org
