Do You Love New York?

No we're not talking about the train wreck reality show on VH-1...even though that show is totally a guilty pleasure of mine...and that new show I Love Money....don't get me started on that, see now Chance had got into it with...

Ahem...sorry. Lost my wits there. Back to talking about indie film:

Aspiring filmmakers 14 years old and above have one more chance to take advantage of the opportunity to tell the world why they love New York and have their work judged by a star-studded celebrity panel. Filmmakers -- professional, student, and amateur --may submit their :60 second entries for Empire State Development's I LOVE NY short film competition until July 15th.

The Grand Prize Winner's film will appear as part of a commercial during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast, as well as on jetBlue Airways seatback televisions and the Independent Film Channel (IFC). Several New York State film festivals will also show the winning film.

Prizes including Sony professional HD video equipment, a scholarship to a filmmaking workshop, a mentorship with a major filmmaker and New York film festival getaways will be awarded in nine categories including best young filmmaker (18 and younger), best student filmmaker and best regional film.

The winners will also have their film stored in the Eastman House in Rochester, New York alongside the personal collection of acclaimed producer Martin Scorsese. WOW. Filmmakers should submit their entries here. All content must be original and must be filmed in New York State
