Jax Music Video Festival Seeks Local Talent

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Enjoy a good film? Want to see local talent or budding producers?

Or maybe you'd like to submit some creative work of your own?

The Jacksonville Music Video Revival (JMVR) is a program of the 2011 Jax Film Fest showcasing local musicians and filmmakers.

This October the Jacksonville Music Video Revival will join the newly named and re-branded Jax Film Fest lineup.

This year's film fest will feature a full program of local music videos on the big screen as part of Duval's premiere showcase of independent film.

The JMVR began last year to showcase local filmmaking and musical talent.

The hope is to stimulate a "revival" of the art from here in Jacksonville.

In June 2010 the request for music videos began. Videos were submitted at a surprisingly rapid rate.

In August 2010, 12 original videos, made by local filmmakers and musicians, were shown to an enthusiastic audience at the 5 Points Theatre.

As videos continued coming in, a second round of local music videos was shown in October 2010. The JMVR was also shown at the MOCA Theatre during Downtown Art Walk.

A Jacksonville Film Festival committee selected a Music Video Revival "Best of" from rounds one and two that were shown as part of 2010 Film Festival.

The EU Emerging Director Award was presented to L. Gustavo Cooper for his direction of the music video, "Dark Horse Saloon".

Many music videos have been made since then and EU is pleased to offer an outlet for them to be seen by the public.

This year the Jax Film Fest will show a full-length program of music videos as part of the Film Fest on Friday, October 14, 2011 at the 5 Points Theatre.

EU will again present the EU Emerging Music Video Director's Award to one of Jacksonville's talented filmmakers for their part in the Music Video Revival and will be profiled in EU Jacksonville Newspaper.

JMVR and the Jax Film Fest are now accepting submissions for this very special opportunity.

To enter videos for consideration they must be .mov/Quicktime file type H264 or ProRes, must fit on a data DVD  and delivered to the Jax Film Fest HQ at 2011 Belote Pl, Jacksonville, FL 32207 no later than September 22nd.

The Jax Film Fest will take place October 13th-16th. For more information about the Film Festival and to purchase tickets, go to jaxfilmfest.com.
