FRESH START Competition

Congratulations to the winners of FRESH START COMPETITION, Filmaka's third competition of the new season!

1st Place Winner: Chastity Thomas for "Moving On"
2nd Place Winner: Prince Mackey for "Do-Over"
3rd Place Winner: Sahra Bhimji for "A Fresh Start"

The three winners receive cash prizes and are eligible to participate in Filmaka's Final Competition to win a chance to make a fully-financed feature film.
"These nine films are so diverse in how they address the prompt "Fresh Start", that they remind you that Filmaka encourages imaginative thinking to solve problems. Even if your entry isn't picked you have given yourself a gift: reinforcement that your imagination holds more than you know if you give yourself a chance to use it." -Bill Pullman
"Filmaka continues to amaze me. The diversity and the creativity of the films in this competition is both surprising and extremely rewarding. The members who submitted for "Fresh Start" come from all walks of life, from all around the world, and this particular contest even seems to have inspired entire families to make shorts together, which is absolutely wonderful." -Thomas Augsberger
