Reel to Reel contest pairs filmmakers/musicians

Victoria video efforts to be screened this Thursday

Films entered in the CineVic Society of Independent Filmmakers’ Reel-to-Reel Music Video Challenge will be screened at the Victoria Event Centre Thursday night (Sept. 29).

The competition randomly pairs filmmakers with local musicians and bands, with the goal to create a short musical film to the soundtrack of an original song by the artist.

The finished films will be screened and voted on by the audience and a jury panel comprised of arts-and-culture writer Amanda Farrell-Low, May Street Productions producer Erin Skillen and Zone 91.3 presenter Jeremy Baker. The winning filmmaker will receive $300 in cash, while the audience favourite receives a $200 prize.

Local comedian Wes Borg hosts the evening. Chris Ho and his band will perform.

Tickets are $10, available in advance at CineVic, 1931 Lee Ave. or at the door, 1415 Broad St. Doors open at 7 p.m. For more information visit www.cinevic.ca.
