AND ... ACTION! WDSE•WRPT LAUNCHES SMART FILMS – AN on-air cinema Destination THAT WILL REDEFINE "SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES"
From filmmakers across the Midwest to indie films shot in our own neighborhoods, we are passionate about movies. Got one to share? Smart Films will be a showcase for short, smart independent films. Duluth public television, WDSE•WRPT, seeks films, Smart Films. We are looking for short films from professional and aspiring filmmakers for possible inclusion in a Saturday night broadcast. If you have any questions or comments send an email to smartfilms [at] wdse [dot] org
We are seeking Smart Films to share with a diverse audience. Films must be original and clean enough for my mother. Subjects? It’s up to you. All genres of film will be accepted for review including narrative, documentary, animation and experimental. You must own all rights necessary including music rights in order to grant WDSE•WRPT a license to broadcast your Smart Film on Public Television. Smart Films is accepting productions on an on-going basis, but smart filmmakers are sending theirs in now.
Late night belongs to independent film. Smart Films is home to intriguing but underexposed works culled from film festivals around the Midwest. Smart Films gives filmmakers a rare chance to present their projects to a widespread and discerning audience. Now small-budget projects that can’t compete with the major studios get to fly above the radar, while audiences enjoy free access to films they might otherwise never get the chance to see.
