CALL FOR ENTRIES
The 2011 Talking Pictures Festival invites independent filmmakers to submit their films to its annual festival competition. Now in its third year, the festival takes place in April 2011 in Evanston, IL and attracts filmgoers from the entire Chicago metro-area.
What we’re looking for…
We seek films that are thought-provoking, intriguing, entertaining, vibrant, authentic, artful and informative. From dramatic films to hard-hitting documentaries, comedic shorts, animation or experimental films, we invite independent filmmakers to send us their work for consideration. All genres, styles and lengths welcome! Cash awards for winning film entries.
Connecting with the audience…
True to its name, screenings at The Talking Pictures Festival foster a lively dialogue between filmmakers and audience members and get the community involved.
“What a wonderful experience the Talking Pictures Festival was! It totally lived up to its name… The shared experience of a film, and then being able to discuss it right away with a group is so important. This was really why I made the film – as a catalyst for discussion, challenging people to ask difficult questions.”
– Laura Israel, Director: WINDFALL
