Just passing time

Thinking about David Lynch's analogy about catching an idea and learning by doing I came up with the idea of making an experimental short film. I was thinking about the time as the main topic. I would love to see how people around the globe would catch the idea of time on camera, in words, pictures, or even voice. 

*DEADLINE EXTENDED* City of Vincent Filmmaking Project 2020

This unique initiative provides three filmmakers the opportunity to receive $5,000 in production funds to produce a non-fiction film of 10-minutes or under that intersects in one way or another with the City of Vincent. That’s as simple as it gets.

If you're a budding filmmaker or team of creatives, you've simply got nothing to lose!


Projects must be in the documentary genre, but can be comedic, dramatic or animated. Films must be between 5 and 10 minutes in length including credits and suitable for screening at all age events.
