International SinCity Film Award: Shoot your films! Show your Sin City!

It’s all about the Sin Cities of the 21st century. The Roaring Twenties were wild with naughty cabaret and feverish decadence. But what do Sin Cities look like today? We are challenging filmmakers all over the world to capture the influence of present-day Sin Cities on culture and everyday life, on personal dreams, secret longings and mortal fears. An acclaimed jury of hit songwriters, academy award winners and nominees, film and music video directors, actors, record label and film executives will decide on the finalists and winners of the Jury Award. The finalists will be promoted via an international social media campaign to determine the audience award winner. Don’t miss this unique and unforgettable opportunity…
