ATL Short Cuts Film Contest: The Sequel!

The ATL Short Cuts Film Contest strikes back in 2012. Following last year's inaugural contest and its theme of Atlanta neighborhoods, this year we invite would-be filmmakers to consider the Atlanta music scene. Films should be five minutes or less and involve some aspect of local music, ranging from narratives to performances to music videos.

What's in it for you? For finalists, an open-to-the-public screening complete with complimentary snacks and performances that gives you a chance to drum up support for your film — viewers will vote at the screening and online. There will be two big winners — the Critics Choice and the Viewers Choice — and two runners-up. All four films will be screened at the Atlanta Film Festival, and the first-place winners will also receive tickets to the Atlanta Film Festival, an exclusive meet-and-greet with ATLFF filmmakers, and more prizes to be announced.

For more detailed rules, check out the ATL Short Cuts Film Contest Page. You must create or log in to a YouTube account to upload your video. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 17, 5 p.m. Last Viewer's Choice award proved prophetic in both its musical theme and its take on current events:
