Eventbrite - Indie Soul: An Evening of Art and Connection For a Cause

Indie Soul will feature live music, a photo booth, a cool VR experience, crafts, food and libations. 100% of all profits will benefit Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. 

Contest (Closed on 3/1):

Art is a universal language that connects humanity. It inspires. Educates. It saves lives. You can see a film or hear a song and know that someone out there understands where you come from and what you’re going through. That you're not alone in this world and are a part of something much bigger. Real art can connect you to that feeling deep inside, that silences your self doubt and helps you strive closer to reaching for your dreams. 

We’re hosting a contest with two opportunities for submissions within our two favorite art forms: film, and music. 

The theme:

What will help us move forward in a positive way? What do we need more of? (i.e: love, unity, action, equality, diversity, clarity, empathy, etc.)

Whatever is ignited inside of you, show it to us in the form of your own original song or short film.

Radiant J. Productions Presents "Cinefemales"

Eventbrite - Cinefemales

We're brewing up an exciting event over at Radiant J. Productions! On May 21st, we'll be hosting an evening at the famous Aero Theatre in Santa Monica to celebrate film, women and culture.

One aspect of the night will focus on elevating emerging artists. Happy to announce that we're holding a short film contest exclusively for female filmmakers! Don't worry, gents. We love you. You'll get another opportunity soon and we hope you attend the event. But the staggeringly low numbers of female creatives getting jobs in this industry, was something we wanted to address and help move the needle on.

The Details:

Your short film must be 15 minutes or less and focus on the following question through your art: "What does your "J" stand for?" Let us elaborate.

For Amirose, our founder, the "J" is in honor of her beautiful mother Jayne, who lost her battle to Cancer in 2014. Her "J" stands for purpose, passion and using tragedy as an igniter to bring people together in the name of art and connection. 

The film does not need to physically incorporate what your "J" stands for but should show us what that means to you, by touching on something you're passionate about. Explore matters of the heart, consciousness, creativity, politics or social issues, through an artistic lens. Aim to inspire, connect and stimulate the conversation. 

Up to three winners will be selected and flown out to Los Angeles to premiere their short at the event and speak on a panel, in front of a live audience!  

The Fine Print:

  1. Participants must be 18-years-old or older.
  2. Must live within the U.S. to be eligible for the trip prize. Can still submit if outside the U.S. but the trip is forfeited and participant will instead be eligible for a prize (TBD) determined by Radiant J. Productions.
  3. For any winners who already reside in Los Angeles, a prize (TBD) in lieu of the trip as determined by Radiant J. Productions will be given. 
  4. An original piece of work must be submitted, adhering to the theme presented.
  5. Film must be 15 minutes or less. Longer submissions will not be accepted. 
  6. Collaborations between men and women are great but the film must be directed by a woman.
  7. Up to three winners living within the U.S. will receive flight and hotel accommodations for one day, the day of the event (Saturday, May 21st, 2016). Checking out on Sunday, May 22nd, 2016.

  10. If the chosen winner does not respond within 36 hours of notice, their prize is forfeited and the next participant in line is alerted. 
  11. The films will be judged by a jury including Radiant J. Productions' founder, Amirose Eisenbach, Access Hollywood's Scott Mantz and Fandango's Alicia Malone.
