Josh Brolin will serve as the honorary chair and panel judge for the first Netflix FIND Your Voice Film Competition. Film Independent and Netflix have teamed up for a competition that will provide a first-time filmmaker with a wealth of resources to make his or her feature narrative film. The prizes include a $150,000 cash grant from Netflix. Other sponsors include Panavision, Kodak, and Deluxe Entertainment, who will donate their services.
Potential filmmakers can apply through February 9. After that deadline, 10 semi-finalists will be selected to submit a short video, which will be voted on by the public. Brolin and a panel of other film professionals will select the final winner from the top five remaining submissions. FIND will screen the completed film at the Los Angeles Film Festival, which runs from June 18 through June 28.
