Pacific Crest Trail Short Film Festival

Last update: Monday, March 11, 2013

It's that time of year again to submit your short Pacific Crest Trailrelated videos for the 2013 Pacific Crest Trail Short Film Festival at the Kick Off!

We are looking for short videos that are related to the PCT. We are not looking for videos that were mindlessly thrown together; we are looking for videos that have story—videos that show that you have something to say. For example: the video could be funny, painful, uplifting, scenic, adventurous—or even romantic. It could offer a vignette into a particular aspect of hiking the trail; it could explore a particular place or person; it could explore a particular incident—but the most important requirement is that it relates to the Pacific Crest Trail.

Videos will be judged and four awards will be given out this year:

  • Best of Festival
  • Best Spirit of the PCT
  • Best Leave No Trace Message
  • Most Humorous

For 2013 all videos MUST be under 10 minutes. It is a short video festival and we want to allow time for many different people to have their videos up on the giant tyvek screen at the Kick Off.

Videos must be received by Friday, April 12. The preferred format to submit the video is via digital file. The file could be burned to disk and mailed in, or sent via Dropbox, YouSendIt, or another file delivery service. Playable DVDs will be accepted as well. It can be in wide-screen 16x9 or 4x3 aspect ratio. The total running time and the video creator's contact information should be written on the disk. If your video is already online on YouTube or Vimeo, shoot ProDeal an email and provide the link. It can be directly downloaded from the web for submission to the festival.

The selection of videos to be shown is per the discretion of ProDeal. Submissions may be retained for future use or discarded. No DVDs will be returned. No video will be used for any other use without the permission of the video creator.

Send your video submissions to:

874 Lee St Apt B
Bishop, CA 93514-2320

Dropbox, YouSendIt, or another file delivery service: yosemiteryan@yahoo.com

Again, they must be received by April 12. We are looking forward to screening your creations!
