Ava DuVernay is teaming up with Disney and Nissan to provide an opportunity to aspiring female filmmakers:
“Nissan has announced that they will be working with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and the film’s director, Ava DuVernay, to promote the “Searching for the Next Visionary Filmmaker” contest. The contest seeks to inspire innovative directors – especially female filmmakers – to step up and share their voice. To enter, aspiring directors ages 18 and up must submit a two-minute video showcasing their journey as a filmmaker.
Submissions will be judged on their unique storytelling voice, their creativity and originality, and their depiction of one of the most powerful lines of dialogue in the film, “Be a Warrior.”*
One lucky winner will receive $100,000 from Nissan to create their own film, plus a trip to Hollywood to attend the world premiere of “A Wrinkle in Time” and meet with DuVernay. Additionally, the winner will receive an all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF. Visit www.AWITFilmChallenge.com to submit your video and to access official contest rules.* Contest ends February 2.”
