2018 Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema Call for Entry Form

Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema seeks short films or videos in all genres, in which: 1) local residents participated in any aspect of production or distribution, or 2) the subject matter / theme resonates with current issues, challenges facing the neighborhood of Bernal Heights, for presentation at the 15th annual summer series of free screenings in our local parks, playgrounds and open spaces.

THEME: Honoring the theme of last season, "Remembering Red Hill and Bernal's Political Voice," Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema seeks films that reflect the many voices and influences that created and continue to impact this community. Until the 1906 earthquake, Bernal remained largely undeveloped, when refugees from the city moved into earthquake shacks on Precita Park. During World War II, the area saw another population surge. The new arrivals included many African-American families who worked at the nearby San Francisco Naval Shipyard at Hunters Point. During the Vietnam War, the neighborhood was known as "Red Hill" for the anti-war activists in shared households and collectives who moved in among the working-class families. By the 1990s, Bernal's pleasant microclimate, small houses and freeway access to the peninsula and Silicon Valley led to a third wave of migration. Despite the changing demographic, Bernal retains its reputation as a community of activists and independent thinkers.

SUBMISSIONS CRITERIA AND PROCESS: Our Submissions & Selection Committee reviews all entries, selects submissions for screening and votes on three awards among all entries: "Best of Bernal," "Spirit of Bernal" and "Emerging Filmmaker" awards. All selected films/videos submitted directly to Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema are eligible for the "Audience Award," voted on by audience members. Filmmakers will be notified by the second week of August, 2018, if their selection will screen in this season's schedule. Films are judged on their production values, themes, intended audience, length and association with Bernal (not a requirement for selection)

Submission deadline: June 30, 2018
Screening dates: September 6, 7 and 8, 2018 and "Best of Bernal" screening September 25, 2018.
