New Belgium seeks submissions for 2013 Clips film festival

According to a press release, New Belgium Brewing has put out the call for inspired short films for its touring beer and film festival. “Now simply called ‘Clips,’ the roving film festival wants your filmmaking prowess for its 2013 show. To enter, upload your film to www.newbelgiumclips.com.” Submissions are accepted now through April 15; New Belgium will choose around 20 films.

The guidelines include:
• The film must be no more than five 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 is a nationwide beer and film tour that brings people together to try beers from New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series, along with some popular classics, view amateur films and raise money for philanthropic organizations. Now in its fourth year, Clips has raised nearly $118,000 for local nonprofits in the cities where it has held screenings.” The festival kicks off in Bloomington, Indiana on Friday, May 31.
