New Belgium Brewing is now accepting film submissions for its 2014 Clips Beer & Film Tour.
Selected films will be viewed in 21 cities across the U.S., starting in May. Clips Beer & Film Tour is a unique film festival where guests sit under the stars, enjoy New Belgium beers, and watch a composition of original films, while simultaneously raising money for local nonprofits.
Last year, nearly $9,400 was raised for Davis Bicycles! at a tour event on July 26. About 1,800 people came out to Central Park to sample beers and enjoy films.
The selected filmmakers will receive a trophy-worthy beer in a custom screen-printed bottle made exclusively for the winning submissions. In addition, they will receive a limited edition, hand-forged Clips belt buckle.
“The Clips tour is a philanthropic celebration of the creativity of craft brewing and film,” said Christie Catania, Clips National Special Events Manager. “The selected filmmakers have the opportunity to share their passion with thousands of people across the country, win unique prizes, and of course bragging rights.”
Film submissions can range from 10 seconds to 5 minutes on any or all of these topics:
* Craft beer
New Belgium is accepting submissions through April 1 at http://www.newbelgium.com/Events/clips-beer-and-film/submit-your-film.aspx and selects approximately 20 films each season. Filmmakers must be at least 21 years old and must secure rights for all elements included in the film.
