iReport Film Festival

CNN Launches iReport Film Festival: Campaign 2008

CNN announced the launch of the iReport Film Festival. This is CNN’s first user-generated short film competition, providing a platform for voters to document this year’s presidential campaign from their personal vantage point. Winning submissions, judged by both users and a panel of judges from the film and television industry, will be announced during Anderson Cooper 360° on Thursday, November 13.

To submit videos filmmakers can go to, where all of the entries also are available for viewing by the community. Festival entrants must be 14 years of age or older. Their films must be no longer than eight minutes and must be uploaded to the site by midnight on Sunday, October 12.

Each Tuesday leading up to the announcement of the festival winners, one of the videos will be featured on Anderson Cooper 360°. Twenty finalists will be selected by a committee composed of CNN producers, iReporters and students from film schools and high schools across the country. Those 20 films will be posted to, where the site’s users will vote to determine the winner of the CNN Audience Award. The finalists also will be judged by a panel of professionals from the television and film industry for the Festival’s Grand Jury Award. Winners of the CNN Audience Award and the Grand Jury Award will be invited to travel to Washington, D.C., during the Presidential Inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009.
