This film competition is open to all ages and all levels from novice to professional filmmakers. There is no fee to enter. Entries must be “G” rated for all audiences and be a maximum of 15 minutes in length.
In addition, every film must be shot on location at the Bonita Springs Nature Place. Best overall film will win a cash award at the gala.
The top films will be shown that evening and possibly shown on BTV Comcast channel 98 at the Prado Stadium 12 in Bonita Springs.
This highly anticipated new venture is open to all genres, ages and skill levels. The Bonita Nature Place is looking for full support and participation from the Bonita Springs and Southwest Florida communities.
This is the perfect opportunity to showcase one's skills, to integrate yourself into the community, or even to promote the mission of your company or community.
Filmmakers might want to know that Bonita Springs is located on both Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The area referred to as Bonita Beach is located on a road-accessible barrier island (Little Hickory Island).
The barrier island lies between the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay. The city is the northernmost city on the west coast of Florida that has a tropical climate - perfect for making films!
