Once again, local would-be filmmakers can celebrate nature, activity and adventure, and, if successful, see the fruits of their labors on the big screen.
Now underway, the North Bend Amateur Film Challenge is an annual contest for amateur filmmakers to create films about the great outdoors.
Winning films will be presented at the North Bend Mountain Film Festival at the North Bend Theatre, 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, before Warren Miller’s “Flow State”.
First prize is $250, second prize is $100 and third prize is $50.
Winners will also receive a three day pass for two to the Banff Mountain Film Festival at the North Bend Theatre, Dec. 5 to 7.
All films must have a connection to North Bend or outdoor recreation and be rated PG. Film duration may not exceed 15 minutes. Films must be submitted by Friday, Nov. 30.
Films shall be submitted to the City of North Bend Community and Economic Development Department electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org, by mail at PO Box 896 North Bend, WA 98045 or in person at 126th East Fourth Street, North Bend.
