Rave: enRoute Film Festival

If you’ve got your eye on an Oscar, then we’ve got the competition for you.

Calling all Canadian emerging filmmakers, the fifth annual Air Canada’s enRoute Film Festival is here.

Chosen by a juried panel, the best short films will be broadcast to a large international audience on Air Canada’s inflight personal seatback entertainment system. The winner of Best Short Film will receive a $5,000-cash prize courtesy of presenting sponsor Cineplex Entertainment. Other awards include Achievement in Direction, Achievement in Cinematography, and Achievement in Animation. All award winners will receive an exciting (new this year!) destination prize to Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France.

Jury members for 2011 will be announced later this summer. Past members have included Jason Priestly, Denis Villeneuve, Donald Sutherland, Alan Cumming, Dan Aykroyd and Rémy Girard. Once winners have been selected, a free public screening and awards celebration will be held in Toronto in October.

So get your cameras ready and start filming because the submission deadline is Tuesday, May, 31.
