The deadline to receive the reenacted scenes is August 4 at 12 pm Jordan time (1 pm UAE time).
The Royal Film Commission Jordan has launched a ‘Reenactment Competition’, which is open to Jordanian and Arab filmmakers.
The commission has selected three movies and participants are required to reenact one of the scenes from them. The three selected films include Jordanian feature-length narrative film When Monaliza Smiled by Fadi Haddad (2012), Lebanese short narrative film The President’s Visit by Cyril Aris (2017) and American Classical film D.O.A. by Rudolph Maté (1949).
Each filmmaker can participate with only one reenacted scene and can be done with or without adaptation. Participants are allowed to change the language of the scene, introduce a tweak to the script, and change the design of the setup.
Duration of the reenacted scene is minimum one minute and a maximum of three minutes. If needed, filmmakers can use music provided they have the right to use it. Movie technical quality must be no less than 1920 x 1080 HD and can be shot using a camera or a mobile phone.
A jury of Jordanian and Arab professionals will choose the best-reenacted scene. The evaluation will be mainly based on directing and acting. Eligible reenacted scenes will be posted on the RFC’s Facebook page for public voting.
There will be the Jury Award with a prize amount of $450 and the Audience Award with a prize amount of $200.
