Submission Deadline Extended for Nokia and the Sundance London Film and Music Festival 2013


Nokia Music and Sundance US have recently produced a six-part documentary with some of the world’s most respected independent directors.

New American Noise shines a light on the underground music scene in six American cities and gives an unprecedented insight into the lives and passions of today’s music fans.

To further explore this fascinating theme, Nokia Music is teaming up with this year’s Sundance London to challenge filmmakers and directors across the globe to investigate the music scenes in other cities.

To take part, filmmakers must upload a short video trailer (15 sec – 60 sec) including a 150 word supporting written description visualizing the ‘underground music scene’ in their chosen city. Think of this trailer as an audition, which showcases your concept. Nokia is looking for creative ideas that push the boundaries of the camera and the possibilities of mobile filmmaking.

Two finalists will receive two #Lumia920′s and a $5,000 production budget each to create their final short film. What’s more, both films are guaranteed a special screening at the Sundance London Film and Music festival (2013) in April, along with a mentoring session with one of the ‘judges’. Finally, one lucky grand prize winner will walk away with $5,000 and Nokia #Lumia920.

The highest voted will receive a Nokia #Lumia920 and two tickets to Sundance London. (Travel/accomodation not included)

Ten highly commended filmmakers will receive tickets to Sundance London. (Travel/accomodation not included).
