For the independent film and television production company, the virtual short film festival reflects an ongoing commitment to championing newer creators. With submissions opening on the 16th and closing on the 18th, creators will have 48 hours to craft a bite-sized film, which runs three minutes or less, while observing the latest social distancing guidelines.
Three winners, announced on May 7th, will be selected by a panel of judges including Agbo Co-Founders and Chairmen Joe and Anthony Russo, Vice Chairman Mike Larocca, Co-Presidents of Story Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and President of Creative Angela Russo-Otstot. Subsequently, the top films will premiere across Agbo’s social channels.
Each filmmaker in the top three will receive Final Draft screenwriting software,
