CALL FOR WORKS: CineSpace International Video Contest


NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society offer filmmakers around the world a chance to share their works inspired by, and using, real NASA imagery through “CineSpace,” a new short film competition premiering at Houston Cinema Arts Festival, November 12-19, 2015.

Films featuring real NASA footage collected from over 50 years of its history will be judged on the creativity, innovation, and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of spaceflight.

NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society will choose Finalist or “Official Selections,” which will screen at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival in November 2015. Other screenings may also take place throughout the year. NASA judges will award prizes from the Finalist pool.

What We Are Looking For: We are considering short video, film, and digital-media submissions of 15 minutes or less and are seeking works of all genres, formats, and styles including but not limited to narrative, documentary, humorous, dramatic, animation, experimental, ambient, music videos, re-mix, sports, horror, and underground.

We are looking for Submissions that
• Are based on innovative artistic presentation and storytelling.
• Provoke an emotional response.
• Show a mastery of filmmaking craftsmanship.

Submissions MUST contain at least 10% (based on total running time) of NASA video imagery.  More than 10% can be used and still photos can also be used in addition to the video imagery. This imagery may be obtained through the NASA Image Archives or other publicly available means such as YouTube or other.

Top prize for this competition is $10,000 USD.
