New Belgium Brewing is calling all filmmakers, beer-lovers, and videographers! New Belgium’s Clips of Faith is in its third year and searching for short films of the tasty variety.
Clips of Faith is an 18-city tour where people can savor beers from New Belgium’s esoteric Lips of Faith series, along with some popular classics, while enjoying short films and raising money for local nonprofits. Since its inception two years ago, the tour has raised more than $91,000 for local philanthropic organizations and shown nearly 40 amateur films.
“We really enjoy working with all the creative folks in our community of beer drinkers to bring the event together,” said Christie Catania, Clips of Faith Manager-at-Large. “The whole evening is a remarkable collaboration of passions – hand-made films with hand-made beer. We look forward to bringing out some new unique beers and putting together the final cut of the 2012 show.”
Over the last two seasons, New Belgium has received nearly 200 film submissions, with approximately 20 selections making each tour. This year, all selected entries will receive a custom gift from New Belgium and screenings in 18 cities.
To enter, upload your film by April 16 to www.clipsoffaith.com. The guidelines include:
- The film must be no more than seven minutes.
- Filmmakers must be at least 21 years old.
- The film can cover any subject/genre, but extra points go to films that include a New Belgium folly: craft beer, sustainability, whimsy, adventure, or culture.
- Keep it clean.
- Filmmakers must secure rights for all elements included in the film.
Clips of Faith is slated to return to Charleston's Marion Square on Thursday, September 27, 2012.
