As a precursor to the launch of its ad revenue sharing program for content providers, video sharing site Openfilm will recognize top filmmakers with a $500 reward every month. Ten winners are selected based on various criteria, including technical execution, the quality of narrative and acting, the overall popularity and audience feedback.
“Openfilm has attracted some of the world’s most outstanding, up-and-coming independent filmmakers. Whether they submit their content directly to us or we receive it from one of our film festival or film school partners, we understand the time, effort and passion that went into creating the work. This monthly award is our way of thanking them for their contribution to Openfilm and to support their craft,” said Alan Melikdjanian, Openfilm Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer. “As a filmmaker myself, I know the money will come in handy!”
All channels with videos on the site are considered for the award. Past winners are also eligible to win again. Openfilm encourages filmmakers to upload their best work for a chance to be a winner in the coming months.
