2009 Water Film Competition Calls for Entries

The 2009 Intelligent Use of Water Film Competition invites filmmakers to showcase their talents while raising awareness of the need for effective, efficient, and responsible use of water.

Now open for submissions, the competition is accepting all narrative, documentary, animated, experimental, and/or student-made short films, 1- to 10-minutes long that creatively explore methods and ideas to manage and use water responsibly.

Filmmakers, who submit their short films via the competition Web site, will have their entries reviewed by a judging panel of film and water management experts.

Finalists will win a trip to Los Angeles, where they will be guests at a formal screening hosted by David Sutera, director of last year's winning film, Glass Half Full.

Following the screening of the finalists’ films and a roundtable discussion with the filmmakers and judges, two winners will be announced and awarded cash prizes of $6,000 for the Jury Award and $3,000 for the Audience Choice Award.

New to this year’s competition is the addition of the Green Industry Award honoring those professionals who, in addition to designing, installing, and maintaining green spaces, are also aspiring filmmakers. Presented in partnership with the Questex Media Group, publishers of leading landscape and building publications including Athletic Turf, Golfdom and Landscape Management, the 2009 Green Industry Award winner will receive a $6,000 prize.

All entries must be submitted electronically as a .mov, .wmv, .avi or .mpg file no later than 11:59 p.m. (PDT) on Aug. 15 for consideration.

Based in Azusa, Calif., Rain Bird Corporation is the leading manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services.
