Firefox Flicks returns with Ed Norton Judging


Visionary developers Mozilla have just relaunched their filmmaking competition Firefox Flicks seven years after its first inception. This year entrants can compete for thousands of dollars in prizes to help them on their way to becoming the next big thing.
The brief is simple, all you have to do is create a short film in one of our four categories and help us tell the story of Firefox — why we do what we do, and how that helps users on the Web. This is a great competition for film makers and tech enthusiasts to work side by side as one category will honor the Best Use of New Open Technology (e.g. Popcorn.js, HTML5)

With Hollywood heavyweights Edward Norton (Fight Club, American History X) Shauna Robertson (Knocked Up, Superbad) and Jeffrey Silver (Tron: Legacy, 300) judging the entries, this is a fantastic opportunity to have your work seen by some of the most influential people in film.

The grand prize winners (1 from each region) will each receive $10,000 (USD) in video equipment or cash to be used towards school expenses. There are also several smaller prizes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 (USD) for category winners and runners up, with every entrant receiving a Firefox prize pack. For full details please see the Terms & Conditions

The contest is open now, and you have until May 1st 2012 to submit your entry. Good luck!
