Port Huron (CBS Detroit) It’ll be here before you know it — so organizers of the Blue Water Film Festival (BWFF) are asking local aspiring filmmakers to enter their fourth annual event before summer kicks off.

Short films, feature length, animation and documentaries must meet one of the following two qualifications:

  1. The film must have been shot in the state of Michigan or Ontario, Canada.
  2. The person submitting the film must have participated in its production and have a permanent address in Michigan or Ontario, Canada.

All submissions must be postmarked by Friday, June 15, 2012.

This year, the Blue Water Film Festival is offering two new components to their film submission process. Entries sent by March 31, 2012, will receive a special early bird discount on their submission fee.  Filmmakers will also have the option of receiving feedback on their films from the BWFF Film Selection Committee and/or comments from the judges’ panel for an additional cost.

All official selections of the 2012 BWFF will be shown in their entirety on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, in Port Huron. Industry professionals will select the winning films — and cash and prizes totaling $2,500 will be given at the awards ceremony October 6th.

“Our official call for entries kicks off a really exciting time for the Blue Water Film Festival,” BWFF Film Selection Chairperson Kelly Kennedy said in a press release. “As our submissions begin rolling in each year, we continue to be amazed at the fantastic talent coming out of the independent film industry in the state of Michigan and Canada.  I look forward to banner year of truly phenomenal submissions.”
