Project Greenlight

There is almost nothing better than a great short film. If you enjoy short films, you are about to lose the next two hours of your life. HBO has released the top 20 short films submitted for the new edition of the filmmaking reality series Project Greenlight. You can watch the top 20 Project Greenlight short film finalists embedded after the jump, and help determine who will go on.

Project Greenlight is coming back and the filmmaker contest/reality television series is deep in the elimination process. Thousands of filmmakers submitted their entries which were viewed and rated by a peer group of participants on the website. The top 200 directors advanced and were asked to submit a two minute bio video about themselves. The judges selected the top 10% based on their short film and bio video. Those 20 filmmakers’ short films have been uploaded to Facebook where you can watch them and vote beginning on September 15th 2014 (and closing on September 26th). The winner of the public vote will automatically become one of the ten finalists. The remaining nine finalists will be determined by a panel of entertainment industry judges. And that final round will involve the judges determining a grand prize winner from the ten finalists who will direct, film and submitting a scene based on a script provided to them.
