$1 Million in production financing will go to one team to bring their movie to Cineplex Theatres, but they need YOUR help!

From April 6th – June 14th filmmakers from across Canada will be vying to get your votes to help them advance in this exciting film accelerator competition.  You can support BC’s talented filmmakers by watching, sharing, rating and commenting on their trailers, some of which include: Tales from the Castle of Terror, The Legend of Davy Crocket, Climax, Goons, Black Land, Earthlickers and The Visitor and Climax.   Check back each week to see new videos and help your team make it to the top!

But that’s not all – one ‘Uberfan’ will earn their way to the Big Deal event at the Banff World Media Festival in June to participate in the final pitch!
