The Review-Journal has selected five finalists to compete in its Online Film Festival. Now it’s up to you to pick the readers’ choice winner.
These short films prove that San Fernando isn’t the only valley teeming with cinematic creativity. These unsung filmmakers were given no guidelines other than 1) to involve Las Vegas in some way, 2) to display a copy of the Review-Journal and 3) not to exceed 4 minutes.
Readers can review the finalists and pick their favorite at www.lvrj.com/filmfestival2010. Voting ends Oct. 27.
We’d like to thank everyone who produced an original video for our contest. Links to the winners and some other submissions will be published on the R-J’s website, www.reviewjournal.com, once the winner is announced next month.
Winners of the readers’ choice and R-J pick awards will be featured in an article and receive a trophy.
And the nominees are
