The deadline for submissions is May 21 and the winner will be announced on May 26 after public voting.
Jordan’s Royal Film Commission (RFC) has announced the launch of a short film competition called Quarantine Got Talent.
For the competition, the short films to be submitted can be either a documentary, a narrative, animated, experimental or video art, related to the coronavirus topic.
Participants can use footage or music from the internet, provided they have the right to use it.
The duration of the film must be no longer than five minutes and technical quality no less than 1920 x 1080 HD.
The film can be shot using a camera or a smartphone and may be in English or Arabic language.
Participants may submit their film to the competition by uploading them on YouTube while choosing the “Unlisted” option. The deadline for submissions is May 21.
A selection committee will choose the best three shorts and will post them on RFC’s social media pages. The films will be shortlisted for public voting on May 24. The public can then vote for the winning film out of the three.
The winner will be announced on May 26. The award, worth $423, will go in the name of the winner to a social initiative in Jordan providing relief to those particularly affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Further, the winning film will be promoted on the RFC’s social media platforms.
