DVXuser Drama-Fest Short Film Festival
- All films must be no longer than 6 minutes including credits.
- The festival category is Dramatic Narrative (see Wikipedia definition of Dramatic film). The major judging criteria will be the development of a strong narrative with believable characters. In short—tell a good story with beginning, middle, and end in six minutes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dramatic_film
- The central character of all films must be named Eric or Erica.
- All films must be shot on either the DVX or the HVX to be eligible for prizes. Other cameras are welcome for demonstration.
- All films must be "R" rated or lower. Our "R" rating is pretty loose and it’s a hard R.
- All filmmakers agree to grant DVXuser.com and its agents non-exclusive rights for their films to appear on a potential Drama-Fest DVD or for DVXuser-sanctioned public screenings. Deliverables must be formatted as16:9 or 2:35 anamorphic in the requested file format.
- Contest open to every country and films may be in any language. Non-English films must have English subtitles.
- All films must be made between November 1, 2006 and January 31, 2007 and must not have been publicly screened prior to entry. The entry deadline is January 31, 2007 and no films or revisions to films will be accepted after this date. Entry instructions will be posted closer to the deadline.
- Films may only be promoted on DVXuser.com before screening and no actual footage from films may be screened prior to the DVXuser screening. No promotion on external web sites is allowed until after the screening has been completed.
- Films may be entered in other festivals as long as they aren’t screened prior to January 31, 2007.
- No entry fee

okay, i'm going to be that guy who asks for clarification on the Eric/Erica name. by "the central character", do you really require that it be "THE" central character or just "A" central character. the reason i ask is that i have a very special working relationship with a particular actress, and i routinely let her choose her character name. it's a gesture I make in fleshing out the character together that implies she "owns" the character. i could easily give the required name to another character that impacts her in some drmatic fashion, but... well... anyway, just curious.
erica/eric = main character or any character?

Too bad I am not getting my HVX until spring or early summer.
Anyone interested in a script writer?
