The 2014 incarnation of the Sprockets International Music Video Festival will happen July 18 and 19 at Cine and the 40 Watt Club, respectively, according to a press release from parent nonprofit Film Athens.
The festival, whose panel of judges awards the prize for Best Music Video and also includes the crowd-sourced Audience Choice and Best Georgia Video awards, seeks to highlight emerging and established filmmakers and their work alongside musicians. Groups from Athens and the wider world are encouraged to submit videos. Last year’s grand prize went to Craig Sheldon and Lauren Gregg for their clip for local band Grape Soda’s “Obvious Signs.”
The early deadline for this year’s festival is Tuesday, Apr. 15, and the final deadline is Wednesday, Apr. 30. Details on specific requirements, as well as the submission form, can be found here. Film Athens also announces that Sprockets is seeking volunteers & sponsors; interested parties can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
