CBC Short Film Faceoff is a great national competition of some of the best short films made in Canada. It’s the second year of the program nationally (they had a more Atlantic version previously) and the whole Mr. Crab team is excited about this opportunity. It’s pretty rare to have a short play on television at all, but playing on this show in prime time across the country is fantastic.
The basic idea of the show is 9 different films (and their directors) face off against each other, judged by a panel of film professionals and a studio audience. The three top films from this round move on to a final round that allows the public to decide who wins the grand prize. The prize itself quite generous, a $40,000 rental / services grant, and a $10,000 cash grant toward your next film.
Keep your fingers (and claws) crossed for Mr. Crab! More news about broadcast time when we have it.
